The Water Jetting Ring is a state of the art material agitation system which vastly improves the process for breaking up and pumping densely packed material commonly encountered in dredging applications.
This jetting ring contains 28 adjustable, high-pressure spray nozzles which are effectively used to agitate densely packed or consolidated materials to make them easier to feed the pump with a more consistent material flow rate.
The Jetting Ring accomplishes this by shooting high-pressure streams of water at the material, adequately liquefying it enough to where the pump can maintain constant production without clogging or becoming starved for material to pump. The high-pressure jetting ring works in conjunction with the standard cutterhead or the self-cleaning cutterhead to even further enhance material agitation. Additionally, with our modular EDDY Pump design, the pump, jetting ring, and cutterhead can be deployed via an excavator boom, cable hung from a crane, or floating A-frame with little to no modification.
The pump, water jetting ring, and suction dredge work in conjunction to make this the optimal dredging system for handling compact muds or other highly viscous materials containing a high percentage of solids, all without the risk of damaging sensitive liners. This powerful pumping system can easily pump thick mud up thousands of feet through discharge pipelines without the need for additional booster pumps.
All of our dredge equipment is powered by the industrial EDDY Pump. This custom dredging system can be powered by a 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12-Inch EDDY Pump to match your project production requirements.
EDDY Pump has been bringing new innovative solutions to the aged dredging industry since 1984. Building on our popular slurry agitation dredge technology, EDDY Pump engineers have developed yet another groundbreaking product, the High-Pressure Water Jetting Ring Attachment.

All EDDY Pump dredges use our proven USA Built industrial pumps.
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 effectively pump highly viscous and thixotropic materials.
We are one of the few companies who manufactures both our pumps and dredging equipment to ensure optimal support.
At the heart of the dredge is the Heavy Duty EDDY Pump. This pump can move slurry up to a rate of 4000 GPM at over 400 ft of head. All EDDY Pumps are uniquely engineered to outperform their competitors. Unlike alternative pumps, the EDDY Pump is optimized for:
– High Production
– High Concentration Solids
– High Viscosity and Specific Gravity Fluids
– High Abrasive and Corrosive Materials
– Low Ownership Cost
