Pipe and Hose Floats for Dredge Pumping | DAE Pumps

Pipe Floats | Hose Floats

The DAE Pumps line of HDPE pipe float and hose floats are made from lightweight, high-density materials, providing great flexibility along with excellent impact resistance, making them ideal for a variety of pumps and dredging applications. It is often necessary to keep your pipeline afloat for ease of maintenance and to protect the seafloor. Our pipe floats and hose floats fit snuggly to cables, hoses, and pipes, preventing slippage and misalignment. The DAE Pumps pipe floats offer the highest in safety standards and do not degrade over time because they are made from molded polyethylene plastic with UV inhibitors.

HDPE floats are ideal replacements for older steel pontoons for several practical reasons. HDPE dredge floats outmatch steel pontoons by having a much lighter weight, making them easier to transport, and install. Additionally, HDPE pipe floats offer vastly improved corrosion over traditional steel pontoons, saving many hours of maintenance and replacements.

Pipe Floats

Pipe Floats & Dredge Floats

Our pipe floats are designed to prevent slipping along the pipeline by utilizing compression points strategically placed throughout the float which adds friction to the pipeline ensuring no slippage. Sizes available range from 6 inches to 30 inches.
Cable Line Float

Cable & Hose Floats

Cable & Hose Floats can offer a perfect solution for keeping lengthy electric powered pump and dredge cables afloat and off the seafloor. These floats are highly optimized and designed specifically for fuel lines, hoses, and cables. Sizes available range from 2 inches to 6 inches.

Pipe Float Applications

The DAE Pumps pipe floats provide excellent support for dredging, mining, dewatering, pumping, and many other applications. The snug, non-slip fit ensures the floats stay in place on the pipe and hose during movement. During excavator dredge pumping or with large waves, the movement can cause ordinary floats to slip and hoses to kink or sink. The variation in the hose will reduce the flow of the material and reduce production. However, the DAE Pumps non-slip hose floats and non-kink slurry hoses ensure optimal pumping at full production speed.
