Pre-Loved Dredging Equipment
Although DSC only manufactures new dredges, we have related entities that may supply used dredges or equipment. DSC also offers a remarketing program as a service to our customers. If you or your budget requires used dredging equipment, contact us and we will get you in a dependable dredge!
Does your operation need a booster pump? 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.
Your most cost effective option is to keep the dredge close to the discharge point. If that isn't possible, DSC designs and manufacturers booster units to complement your dredge and the requirements of your project.
Let us help you assess whether a booster pump would benefit your operation, and calculate the correct size, power and location for the pump.
Once your booster is complete, we also offer training on how to run the entire plant optimally, and provide technical support as you need it.
DSC offers work boat designs to assist your dredge in regular operation and maintenance. We have customized our work boats for customers with precise specifications to include: a pilot house, crews' quarters, deck crane, and various other upgrades.
