Dredge Efficiency Dropping? It Could Need a Boost

Dredge Efficiency Dropping? It Could Need a Boost

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. Of course, there is always a cost involved in pumping the water/material slurry, and the associated fuel or power required to do so. Because of this, the idea of adding a booster pump to the dredging operation in order to reduce costs may seem counterintuitive. It is true that adding booster pumps requires an initial outlay of money for equipment, as well as ongoing costs for fuel or power supply and replacement of wear parts. However, the added benefits of greater production and less wear and tear on equipment means that a booster pump will typically pay for itself within a short period of time.
