Fusing HDPE Pipe for DredgingHydraulic Dredging requires the use of HDPE pipe from the dredge discharge to pump the dredging spoils to an area designated to hold the dewatering material. After dewatering the spoils, the material can be transported to any location for futher use. This dewatered sand can also be pumped into Geotextile Tubes and, once dewatered, be used for beach renourishment or land reclamation as indicated by project specifications.
Dredging into Geotextile tubes
Southern Dredging & Marine provides hydraulic and mechanical dredging throughout the southeastern USA, The Bahamas and the Caribbean. Before beginning to dredge hydraulically, the HDPE pipe has to be fused using a heated fusing machine, like the McElroy Fusing Machine to connect to the dredge discharge and pump dredging material into a desired location.
Dredging Spoils Disposal
Fusing HDPE pipe with butt joins is the first step to preparing the dredge to remove unwanted sand, silt and mud to increase waterway depth in lagoons, oceans, rivers and lakes. The dredge pumps the spoils through the plastic pipe connected to it’s discharge and shoots the material to an area where it can be dewaterd and reused for land creation and beach renourishment.
