Dredging is the process of removing silt, debris, and other sediments from the bottom of streams, lakes, rivers, and other various bodies of water. The number one goal of dredging is to increase the water’s depth because the accumulation of silt makes it a challenging endeavour for vessels to sail through. A dredge is a large piece of machinery used to sweep or guzzle silt from river bottoms.
A hydraulic dredge operates by guzzling a blend of dredged material (gravel, silt, sand, etc) and water from the bottom of the channel. The water quantity syphoned along with the dredged material is monitored and controlled to ensure the ideal blend. Not enough water and the dredge will become impeded; too much water and the dredge efficiency will be compromised.
The dredger operator lowers the boom to the bottom of the water. A rotating-cutting bar possessing serrated teeth is then used to unfasten the compact flooring material. As this takes place, a submersible pump removes the deposits from the waterway.
