SUNPLAST dredge pipe floater/floats are designed to be applied on HDPE dredge pipe & suction & discharging rubber pipes that be used for dredge works. The dredge pipe floater/floats are composed by two halves, which are fixed by bolts/nuts by placing each half dredge pipe floats on the pipe. The inside diameter of dredge floats shall be designed into a elliptical shape, whose smaller diameter is 5-10mm less than dredge pipe’s outer diameter, so the dredge pipe floats will be fixed with pressure tightly, no slipping while assembled into the pipe.
The Dredge Pipe Floater/Floats are made from high wear resistant LDPE by rotational molding technology, filled with high strength polyurethane foam inside. The dredge pipe floater/floats are normally manufactured in yellow color, which is a warning sign for the vessels.
Structure of Dredge pipe floats/floaters:
Outer plastic shell: the dredge pipe floats/floaters is made from LDPE, about 7-12mm thickness, which can withstand the impact of sea wave. The outer plastic shell is rotationally moulded in one-time, no second welding process, this assure the reliability of dredge pipe floats/floaters for normal use.
Inner filled material: Inside the dredge pipe floats is filled with PU foam. PU foam is very light weight, at the same time, it is nonabsorbent material. This assure The dredge pipe floats/floaters can still work in case the outer shell is leaking.
The Dredge floater/floats are also manufactured in a way that will allow them to absorb the energy from vessel collision, to protect the pipelines that they are supporting.
With reasonable structure and good performance, the dredge pipe floater/floats becomes the ideal substitution of the traditional steel floater for the floating dredging pipes.
SUNPLAST can supply various sizes of dredge pipe floats/floaters for choice. The customers can also find a right dredge pipe floats from us based on their dredge pipe.
