The SlurrySucker Dredging System is suitable for the regular cleaning of process water ponds, return water dams or other water storage areas. It is also ideal for dredging and cleaning water capture areas where silt or slimes is an issue or where water retention and water holding capacity is being threatened. This dredging system can be used on plastic lined dams without damaging the liners.
Engineered as a robust, compact dredging unit, the SlurrySucker can be easily transported on a standard road trailer, making it simple to move from pond to pond on a mine site.
The SlurrySucker Mini is capable of extracting 120 m3 per hour of slurry/water mixture, equating to 30 to 40 dry tons per hour, while the SlurrySucker Maxi will remove between 70 to 80 dry tons per hour. The SlurrySucker Mini has a 100 mm discharge and the SlurrySucker Maxi has a 150 mm discharge.
