Cable Deployed Dredge Pumps | DAE Pumps

Cable-Deployed Dredge Pumps

Cable-deployed dredge pumps are the preferred tools to dredge or pump material from deeper underwater waterways, pits in areas with wells or deep groundwater, and even for unloading barges. These dredge pumps require the use of a crane with cable and pulley systems. The cable-deployed dredge pump is suspended by the cable and is lowered and raised to reach the required depth, and provides a large radius with various reach. The crane operator can easily maneuver the pump in the desired location. Cable-deployed dredge pumps by DAE Pumps can reach depths of up to 250 ft in water and pump material at distances of over a mile at rates of up to 1300 cubic yards of material per hour.    

The DAE Pumps cable-deployed dredge pumps can be fitted with water jetting ring that agitates the material to increase the production rates. They can be powered hydraulically or electrically, and DAE Pumps offers a variety of cable-deployed pumps that range from 4-inches up to 16-inches. DAE Pumps is the leading dredge manufacturer of cable-deployed dredge pumps. We manufacture over 150  different sizes and powers to fit your exact need. Contact us today for a quote!

Growler 3000 Electric Dredge Pump with 2-Side Agitators

The DAE Pumps Growler 3000 Electric Dredge Pump with 2 Side Agitators is an extremely rugged dredge pump for transporting the most abrasive solids from heavy-duty dredging situations. Two industrial-strength excavator agitators and a heavy-duty dredge pump enable the Growler 3000 to transfer up to 1200 cubic meters of material per hour through a maximum 16-inch discharge. The suction power can handle solids up to 3.9-inches and transfers up to 30% solids without clogging.

Selecting a Cable-Deployed Dredge Pump

Selecting the correct dredge system is critical for the success of a project. DAE Pumps produces reliable dredge pumps that continuously transfer large solids with little mechanical downtime. The open impeller design and powerful suction of the DAE Pumps dredge pumps allow for easy passage of large solids, and our dredge pumps lead the industry in durability and power. The hi-chrome body with a Brinell hardness of 600, offering the ultimate wear protection. They grind through with ease the material that typically clogs, wears, and breaks other dredge pumps.

Dredging utilizes high powered pumps to transfer water and slurry through a pipeline over a set distance. It often involves working under highly sensitive or harsh conditions, so selecting the correct dredge system and pump is critical for the success of a project. DAE Pumps works with many marine contractors to provide complete solutions for their dredging needs. On top of the dredge pump, we offer turnkey solutions that include dredge hoses, flow meters, hydraulic power units, and everything else you will need for your next project.

Custom Pump Curve

A pump curve is a graphical representation of a pump’s flowrate against a certain level of the head. Using a pump curve that is specific for your application will greatly help in selecting the pump best for you, ultimately saving you time and money.

Pump curves are developed from data gathered during testing of the pump’s performance at the manufacturer’s facility and provide the end-user with a graph of how the pump will operate over a set range. To build the pump curve, our engineers compile several variables, including the type of material, fluid viscosity, distance to pump, target GPM, and job-specific factors. This ensures the most efficient pump is recommended for your project.
