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.

Dredges. Our domestic and international industrial customers call their waste containment areas by different names: sump, pond, lagoon, tank, pit, basin, or channel. The problem is always the same – i.e., settled waste must be removed to comply with state and federal laws.

Examples of Dredge Applications. At a steel mill, the Crisafulli Rotomite dredges mill scale deposits from channels. A gold mining operation uses a Crisafulli FLUMP to dredge metal processing precipitate from holding ponds and transfer the precipitate to drying beds. At a metals processing plant overseas, a custom-built stainless steel Rotomite dredges solids in a solution of sulfuric acid. A chemical company uses another customized Crisafulli unit to dredge highly abrasive, low-level radioactive material. Crisafulli's first automated dredge was built to dredge a settling pond at a sand and gravel plant. Coal-fired power generation plants prefer the Rotomite to remove fly ash from lagoons and transfer it to drying beds.

Pumps. Mine superintendents, power plant operators, petrochemical managers, and chemical engineers have used versatile, rugged and dependable Crisafulli pumps for forty years. They know from experience that a Crisafulli pump will handle anything sent its way. If the material can flow, there is a Crisafulli that can pump it. They also know that our engineers will work with them to customize their product. If the material to be pumped is corrosive, caustic, acidic or abrasive, Crisafulli will design and build a pump that works in the environment. Crisafulli's first electric floating pumps, built in 1966, were made to mix and recirculate drilling mud in oilfield pits. More recently, petrochemical companies and mines have chosen hydraulic pumps, powered by Crisafulli diesel-hydraulic power units, to transfer crude oil wastes, tailings, mine slimes and slurries.
