As a longstanding leader in the dredging industry, Piranha Pumps is equipped to help you with any dredging occasion, whether you need to dewater an industrial site or take care of a pond in your own backyard. However, there may come a time when the scope of your work takes you far from shore. In this case, a floating dredge platform will help you complete your project. Our platforms are versatile to suit your needs; learn more about which one is right for you.
What is Dredging?
First things first, let's get back to basics. Dredging is the removal of solid or sludgy material from water bodies. The size of the water bodies can vary widely, from a rural pond to an artificial mine to a vast harbor.
You may not spend much time thinking about the dredging industry, but it actually plays a large part in life as we know it.
Dredging deepens navigation channels for ships so that food, textile, and technology shipments can have safe passage. Industrial dredging removes debris from a work environment so that factories can continue producing products you know and love. Environmental dredging removes contaminated sediment from waterways, helping to preserve marine life and human health.
All types of dredging have one thing in common, though: you'll need dependable and efficient dredging equipment. That's where we come in.
What Does an Industrial Dredging Platform Do?
A floating platform helps the dredging process in large bodies of water. We have customized our platforms to float up to 4,800 lbs, aiding our industrial-duty pumps to transfer water or other solids. Piranha Pumps gives you control: our industrial pumps and floating platforms have a remote-control positioning system. You'll be able to keep an eye on your whole operation from shore.
Depending on the goal of your project, you can add specific components to our floating platforms in order to increase efficiency—more on that below.
Features of Our Industrial Dredging Platforms
There is nothing more frustrating than having to stop a project midway because your equipment isn't up to the task--trust us, we know! We've been in this industry for over a century and know exactly what needs to be done to sidestep these dredging challenges. That's why we carry pumps that have features that will get your job done right.
Powerful: Our industrial dredging platforms are capable of floating weights up to almost 4,800 lbs. This means they are just as capable of small household/ranch applications as they are for larger, industrial applications.
Versatile: We realize that dredging jobs take place in different landscapes and work with different materials. It's important to us that you're able to find the perfect fit--that's why we offer 12 standard flotation packages.
Effective: You can rely on our tenacity, as well. Our floating dredging platforms feature high-strength tubular steel, a urethane oven-baked powder coat finish, modular hi-density polyethylene foam-filled floats, and stainless-steel fasteners. The components are corrosion-resistant, protecting you from damage during long-term projects.
Depending on the job, different add-ons can help the process go smoothly. We know that dredging projects can involve a wide array of materials and occur in different geological settings. In order to make your process as efficient as possible, we can customize industrial dredging platforms with add-ons such as:
- Depth-control electric hoists
- Traverse winch
- Floating discharge
We spare no expense on our submersible pumps, as they are the crux of dredging operations. Think of Piranha Pumps as your one-stop-shop for dredging projects. Our floating platforms are specifically designed to support any submersible pump. Depending on your project, you can connect our dredge platform to:
- Agitator slurry pumps
- Solids handling pumps
- Dewatering pumps
- Corrosion-resistant pumps
