Project Description

Project description

A Colombian alluvial gold mine company decided to install a DRAGFLOW hydraulic dredging unit on an earth moving machine.

The DRAGFLOW equipment has been fixed to the boom of a Caterpillar amphibious excavator and driven by its power unit as a normal hydraulic tool. The unit is composed of the hydraulic pump HY50 and the frontal cutter-head DTM50.

The DRAGFLOW unit has been supplied for dredging sand, gravel and sludge along the channels around the alluvial mine area. The purpose of the project is to grant the necessary water depth for the navigability of the boats.
