Dredging parts

Dredging activities whether they aim at maintaining (rivers, channels and ports), building (artificial islands) or extracting (oil, sand, gravel,… from the sea- or riverbed), mean particular challenges:

  • Increase dredger productivity.
  • Increase dredger availability.
  • Decrease operational costs.
  • Decrease CO2 emissions.

After a thorough analysis of the whole production process, we search and suggest:

  • An optimized design for higher hydraulic performances.
  • An optimized alloy for an increased lifetime.

Magotteaux’s latest composite, Xcc®, applied to pump components, cutterteeth and wearshoes, increases wear parts lifetime by a min. of 3.
