Sludge extraction device from lagoon bed. Use of the equipment. The equipment is designed to extract the sludge sediments from sea beds, reclamation channels, channels in general and water basins of any other nature. The sludge is extracted from the bottom in order to avoid putrefaction of the bed, with consequent impoverishment pf oxygen, which is the main cause of the abnormal proliferation of algae and consequent death of the fish fauna in general.
The equipment is installed on a flatboat and is powered by a motor generator installed onboard of the flatboat. The flatboat direction guides the equipment to the bed sounding and some floating pistons make the equipment adjust to the imperfections of the bed.
The extraction operations are as follows:
The sludge mixture can thus:
The main machine components are:
All the above components are supported by a moving arm system fitted on suitably sized hubs, in turn pivoted on sealed bearings, with relevant greasing points. Said moving arm support with variable geometry is actuated by floating oil-hydraulic jacks which on the one side, allow the total or partial lifting thereof and on the other side (with jacks in floating position), the soft laying of the float on the bed, which will then form the barrier of the inlet septum.
