SOME ASPECTS OF GRAVEL DREDGERS

In order to make the reclamation of marine gravel a more economic proposition, IHC Holland has recently developed a range of products especially for this market. The most important are a new self- discharge system for gravel dredgers and a static screen. To these may be added a number of standard dredger components which were developed previously, but which have proved highly suitable for gravel reclamation. e.g. a Venturi-draghead, a double-walled dredge pump and instrumentation. These items are discussed in some detail, particular attention being paid to the manner in which they can be combined in an integrated system.
