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...
Maintenance of industrial pools is easily done by utilizing Watermaster`s suction dredging capabilities and independent moving capabilities. It is easy to transport our Watermaster to the site on a trailer and from there the dredger simply `walks` to the pool by itself. At the pool Watermaster moves with its own propulsion system and can also move to another pool by using its excavator assembly and spuds. From the pool the dredger can pump the mass in another pool up to one and a half kilometres away. By backhoe...

Watermaster is easy to transport to the site on a trailer and from there the dredger simply walks into the pool by itself. In the pool Watermaster moves with its own propulsion system and can also move to another pool by using its excavator assembly and spuds. It can pump the mass into another pool up to 1,5 kilometres away. By backhoe work it can build and repair the pool banks.
The harder the conditions are, the greater the Watermaster`s advantages are.
Civil engineering jobs in water are typical for Watermaster Classic. Watermaster is ideal when e.g. embedding cables and pipes in the bottom and it can also do other kinds of maintenance work effectively. The machine moves to the site with its own propulsion system and remote controlled spuds give proper anchorage for steady and efficient piling, excavating work as well as for cable mounting.
The current declining condition of inland waters worldwide can be changed.
Watermaster can deepen, build and clean out inland waters and shores. With this multipurpose technology the smart approach for various problems can be chosen, so that the work is done cost effectively and properly.Large-scale shallow water dredging requires large-scale dredging capacity. Traditional big dredgers with limited mobility are poorly suited for inland waters. With a fleet of amphibious multipurpose Watermasters you are equipped...
LWT’s Robotic Crawler Dredge can be used for underwater dredging applications, such as sewer pipeline dredging and tank cleanout. Models are available in electric driven pump and hydraulic driven pump versions, depending on the application.
Very typical work for Watermaster Classic is deepening canals, rivers and other waterways. Many sites, which are impossible for other machines to get to, can be deepened and cleaned easily with Watermaster. The vegetation and trash is normally removed first by backhoe work and then the bottom is deepened to the desired depth by backhoe work or by pumping.
Environmental cleanup is an important application for LWT dredges. Mud Cat and Pit Hog dredges are used for chemical and biological cleanup in harbors, rivers and lakes. The patented auger shroud on the Mud Cat dredges minimizes turbidity, and entraps suspended material for suction efficiency. LWT’s automated controls and instrumentation allows the operators to assess real time performance of the dredge technology.
Liquid Waste Technology’s dredging systems are used for power plant cooling water dredge applications. LWT’s dredges are designed to remove the sand, silt and sediment that build up in reception ponds and inlet channels to power plants. Each dredging system is custom built for the inlet water application, including the level of automation, removal rate and dredging depth required for each job.
Watermaster Classic can move and work in extreme conditions.
Because of this Watermaster is ideal for preventing e.g. floods and damage caused by flooding. This multipurpose dredger can operate where no other machine can.
Cleaning of urban canals
Vegetation and trash removal
Removal of polluted sediments
Liquid Waste Technology’s dredging systems are widely used for industrial lagoon dredging applications. Electric driven or diesel engine driven dredges are used for removing mine tailings, dredging chemical processing waste ponds, and slag recovery. Automation can be added to make dredging industrial lagoons more efficient and productive.
The 8” Swinging Ladder Dredge is ideal for channels, rivers, marinas, lakes, and canals where maneuverability and wider cuts improve productivity. The 8” Swinging Dragon Dredge uses an 8” x 8” high chrome, hull mounted dredging pump for wear resistant, efficient pumping. The dredge can cut a maximum path of up to 22’ wide allowing the dredge to cut a wider path than most one truck transportable dredges.
