dredging monitoring Applications

  • SONARtrac - Dredging - Hopper Vessels

    Soil density, hardness, lithology, and sediment particle size distribution can create slurry of variable makeup and density. At a constant pump speed, the slurry will have a variable flow velocity, which is undesirable and potentially dangerous. If the velocity is too low, there is a risk of sand outs in the pipeline. If the velocity is too high, the pump will wear and be inefficient. Traditional velocity flow meters with wetted parts are prone to wear, causing measurement inaccuracies, and require frequent,...

  • Monitor Dredging Slurry Flow

    Thousands of dredges are operated to maintain navigation channels in our rivers, lakes and harbours and to mine sand and gravel for the construction industry. Managing and optimizing production from a dredge requires continuous monitoring of pipeline pressure, vacuum and slurry velocity. The operating conditions are extremely harsh and any sensing components in contact with the abrasive slurry can be damaged. But dredge operators need accurate real-time flow information to properly manage production so equipment...
