Environmental Dredge

Large Industrial Use Environmental Dredge Featuring Extremely Low Turbidity

Environmental Dredge Details.  The EDDY environmental dredge is the most sensitive dredge on the market.  Our dredge is designed to be the most precise dredge available, in order to only remove the target material and not over-dredge unwanted virgin material.  This, in turn lowers the cost and time of contaminant material treatment and overall dredging. The ability to dredge with little to no detectable turbidity creates the optimal environmental dredge for low turbidity dredging projects.  The EDDY environment dredge incorporates a 4-spud articulating design, along with load cell technology, that allows for pre-programmed and automated dredging.  The high power of the Eddy Pump, unlike a conventional dredge pump, we can operate without the need for a cutterhead, further decreasing turbidity to non-detectable levels.

 All dredges use our industrial pumps, which are non-clog pumps designed for high solids pumping applications. Our patented pump technology outperforms all centrifugal, vortex and positive displacement pumps in a variety of the most difficult pumping applications.

All EDDY Pump dredges and excavator cutterheads use our proven USA Built industrial slurry pumps.

Environmental Dredging
The core of this design is the patented EDDY Pump technology. The design redefines the pumping industry by being the only pump that utilizes the principles of a tornado to create a synchronized eddy current. This pump is not a centrifugal, positive displacement or vortex pump, but instead the most highly efficient high solids and high specific gravity pump on the market. This translates to the ability to pump higher percent solids of material and capture the heavy specific gravity gold.
