The actual discharge distance in a particular application depends on several variables including: the nature of the slurry – i. e., the specific gravity, weight, and concentration of solids in the slurry, the model and power of the dredge, the size of the discharge pipe, the topography of the land over which the slurry is pumped – i. e., vertical elevation change from the dredge to the discharge site, whether or not a booster pump is installed in the discharge line, and, perhaps most importantly, the experience and skill of the dredge operator.
Dredge Rentals. Many domestic and Canadian customers rent Crisafulli’s Rotomite and FLUMP dredges on short-term leases, and, after becoming familiar with the productive capabilities of the dredges, buy them.
Dredge Installation and Training Services. Crisafulli provides installation and training services for customers across America and around the World.
Crisafulli's unique steerable variable speed hydraulically powered propulsion system provides approximately 1,000 pounds of thrust enabling the Rotomite-6000 and its Crisafulli 6" discharge J-Series pump to dredge and process up to 150 cubic yards of sludge and slurries per hour at depths up to 20 feet (standard; deeper in custom models) in a wide range of applications without the cost and delays of a cabled traverse system.
The world's most productive 6" dredge
When used with Crisafulli's Cabled Traverse System, the Rotomite-6000 is approximately 48% more productive than competitive products. It can complete lagoon dredging projects in approximately half the time and save owners close to the entire cost of the Rotomite over several years from reduced operating costs.
