    As a dredge moves farther away from the discharge point, the pump speed is increased to maintain a proper slurry velocity within the pipeline. Once maximum pump speed has been achieved, further increasing the discharge distance causes the cost-per-ton of material moved to rise, while production declines. Of course, there is always a cost involved […]
