Description: 

DRAGFLOW has successfully delivered a Remote controlled dredge (DRP18) for a project in the important chemical industry Momentive in Italy,
This portable and easily maneuverable mini dredge can be used not only in harbors dredging or natural water bodies but also in a wide spectrum of  applications, including the industrial sector. Easy to transport, assemble and operate, this practical dredge, controlled completely by a hand held remote control, has been chosen for this project.
Our client, Candeo  Agostino, from Padova, needed to collect mud from two equalization ponds to send it to the press filter and continue with the successive steps in the disposal process. The operation needed to be done without emptying the pond while protecting the plastic lining at the bottom. The client also required that the operator could work safetely, due to the acidity of the ponds liquid.
All these issues were resolved with the DRAGFLOW DRP18, the perfect solution to the client's requirements. Thanks to the remote controlled operation, the ability to calculate the exact pump working depth and the dredge maneuverability, all the customer concerns were addressed.
The dredge is equipped with an electric pump EL75,S ( Up to 100 m3/hr, that can be increased if needed) and supplied with a low pH package. Upon request from the client, we also added an explosimeter on-board.
This Dragflow remote controlled dredge was able to pump all the sediment in few minutes, lowering the liquid level by 2 m, and achieving a complete customer satisfaction.
