SlurrySucker Dredging Solution

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.

Can be fully customised for your project requirements

The biggest advantage of the SlurrySucker Dredging System is that pumps can be changed to accommodate specific customer applications. An example of this would be where the customer needs to remove 160 dry tons per hour. In this instance, the dredging system would be custom engineered to handle the required flow.

No downstream process downtime while dredging

The advantage of our SlurrySucker Dredging System is that the dredging operation can be performed without any downstream processes having to be halted. When other traditional methodologies are used to dredge water storage ponds then the dam or pond needs to be taken off line and this shutdown can be costly in terms of production.

No damage to lined dams and ponds

The SlurrySucker Dredging System can be used on plastic lined dams and ponds without any damage to liners. This is very important from an environmental perspective as there is no risk of the liner being cut and water leaking out.

Pumps selected for your specific needs

Manufactured using locally produced components, the SlurrySucker Dredging System can be engineered to incorporate the customers’ pump of choice. Lead times can be significantly reduced both in terms of complete units as well as the requisite parts, since IPR maintains a comprehensive slurry and dewatering pump stockholding. Selection of the pump will be determined by the application.

Rugged and easily transported

Galvanised steel is used for the construction of the dredging system framework and in highly corrosive applications it can be fabricated from stainless steel. Engineered as a robust compact unit, the SlurrySucker Dredging System can be easily transported on a standard road trailer, making it simple to move from pond to pond on a mine site or other site.

Ease of operation

The SlurrySucker Dredging System can be easily operated by one person and for those instances where plants do not have the necessary manpower available, IPR can undertake the pond or dam cleaning on a turnkey contract basis.

The Importance of Choosing the Right Hosing and Flotation Systems for Dewatering Projects

Dewatering projects come in all shapes and sizes, but one thing that remains constant is the need for accessories like hosing and flotation systems. While these accessories might seem like small details, they play a critical role in ensuring that dewatering operations run smoothly and efficiently.
IPR has more than 200 pumps in its rental fleet which is able to handle almost any pumping task.

Pump Rental Offers Benefits That Are Hard to Beat

While there is sometimes a case for buying dewatering pumps and associated equipment outright, renting offers so many advantages that it should always be given close consideration. This is the view of Lee Vine, managing director of dewatering and dredge pump rental specialist IPR.

Warning to Operators of Process Dams to Desilt as Soon as Possible

As the rainy season approaches, Integrated Pump Rental has issued a warning to operators of water storage and process dams to desilt these as soon as possible. Progressive build-up of silt over time would have caused many of these facilities to reach close to critical volume and excessive rainwater could have major implications.

Purchasing of a
Dewatering Pump Solutions

Purchasing dewatering pump equipment makes sense where you would like to have outright ownership of the pumps, and wish to reduce the total overall cost of the dewatering pump installation. Large capital equipment such as dewatering pumps build equity over time, especially if the equipment is well maintained. Pumping equipment with long lifespans are assets that will grow the value of your business.

Renting of a Dewatering Pump Solutions

Renting dewatering pump equipment offers several major advantages that can be beneficial. This option is particularly suited for applications with carrying dewatering needs or where only sporadic dewatering is required. The dewatering pump rental option also means that the skill and competent IPR team will hand all equipment maintenance ensuring the installation operates hassle free.
