DRAGFLOW, an Italian manufacturer of heavy duty pumps and complete dredging equipment, recently delivered a remote controlled dredger DRP18 to its client from the chemical industry, Candeo Agostino from Padova.

This mini dredger, portable and easily maneuverable, can be used not only in harbor dredging operations or natural water bodies but also in a very large spectrum of applications, like industrial sector.

The DRAGFLOW machine, controlled completely by a remote controller, has been chosen for a dredging project in Momentive, Italy.

Our client, Candeo Agostino, needed to collect the mud from two equalization ponds in order to send them to the press filter and continue with the successive step in the disposal process; the operation needed to be done without emptying the pond while also protecting the plastic lining in the bottom. The client also required that the operator could work safely, due to the liquid acidity in the pond,” DRAGFLOW said.

The dredger is equipped with eletric pump EL75,S (power up to 100 mc/h, that can be increased in case of necessity) and supplied with an acid resistant package.
