Pipeline floaters a pipeline, used to transport slurry (a mixture of water and soil or rock, obtained by excavating and mining hydraulically) with hydraulic dredger equipment to the point of discharge.
Pipelines, used to transport slurry (a mixture of water and soil or rock, obtained by excavating and mining hydraulically) with dredger equipment to the point of discharge.
Purpose is floating pipeline to connect the working dredge to the shore slurry pipeline. The slurry pipeline allows operating maneuvers, supporting line structure for securing the supply and control cables ets. The installation and supporting of floating slurry pipelines is made on special floats, the number of which depends on the length of the pipeline, type of pipes, slurry and SG.
We produce polyethylene floats to maintain the pipe slurry pipeline on water. It is also possible to use our floats as floating bearing elements for any purpose. Operating temperature is from -40 A C to + 60 A C, UV resistant.
Floats tightened by straps, belts or polypropylene strips, really simplyfied installation or removing.
The floater is made of polyethylene by rotational molding, hollow inside, but foam filling is possible at a clientas request. Easy-to-use: easy, reliable, durable, and affordable.
Float accepts range of diameters
Foam filling technology
Our foam filling technology:
|Type||D.outside, mm||Floatation, l||Length, mm||Weight, kg||Mount|
|Element of float 110-160||500||90 (60)||600||10||Belt|
|Element of float 180-280||500||140 (100)||1200||16||Belt|
|Element of float 200-280 XL||600||250 (190)||1200||24||Belt|
|Element of float 300-400||940||610 (410)||1200||33||Belt|
|Element of float 400-650||1200||970 (650)||1250||70||Belt|
* The slurry pipeline is hollow inside, but foam filling is possible at a client’s request.
