The paper introduces the main types of centrifugal pump dredgers at present in use, their limitations and applications. The accepted empirical rules for sizing and designing a centrifugal pump dredging installation are detailed. Centrifugal pump dredging can be carried out either by a special dredging pump or by a standard centrifugal pump circulating water through a jet or ejector, and some special features in the design of each type are discussed.
