Cutterheads or agitators are the names given to rotating tools on the end of a pump that help to break up and loosen sediment to make pumping the target material easier and more consistent. There are several options of agitators to choose from, including a water jetting ring which uses pressurized water to loosen sediment instead of digging into the earth.
- Multiple design and teeth options available
- Capable of chewing through tough sediment layers
- High versatility – can be fitted to many types of equipment
- Improved safety
- Highly efficient, lower costs
The Dredge Cutterhead is a custom engineered system. Ocean dredging specialists carefully analyze customer requirements and operating conditions to arrive at the design criteria – cutter profile, size, beta, arm quantity and shape, tooth size, tooth orientation.
Water Jetting Ring
The Dredge Water Jetting Ring is a custom engineered pump attachment system for spraying high-pressure jets of water into the sediment to help break it up to make it easier to pump.
