The brief introduction to Cutter Suction Dredger
- By:Belarusian Trade
The cutter suction dredgers install a rotary reamer device around the suction pipe at the front end of the suction pipe to cut and agitate the sediment at the river's bottom. It is transported to the sediment storage yard, where dredging, mud transporting, and other work processes can be completed concurrently. It is a high-efficiency, low-cost dredger that is also a good underwater excavation machine. It is suitable for dredging in inland rivers and lakes as well as coastal ports with low flow velocity and little wind and waves. It is better suited for digging sand, sandy loam, silt, and other soils. Clay can be excavated with a toothed reamer, but the work is time-consuming.
