Louisiana-based DSC Dredge, LLC, will have its experts available in Central Hall booth #C20523 at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, March 7-11, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada. With many of DSC's custom dredge solutions on display, visitors will have the opportunity to discover how DSC's advanced dredging technology has benefited customers worldwide – and discuss how DSC's expertise will ultimately result in the exact right dredge for their own unique applications, ultimately boosting their efficiency and lowering their operating costs.
DSC believes that every dredge begins with a story. Every dredging application is different, and every dredge operator works under unique conditions. DSC's dredging solutions are rooted in a number of base models that are then customized to match the customer's goals. Prior to making any recommendations, the company executes a rigorous process of talking with customers to establish the immediate and long-term application parameters and obtain the necessary information to recommend the right dredge. This information may include factors such as dredging depths, types of materials, distance and elevation to discharge, portability requirements and access to power grids.
For more than 20 years, DSC has focused its expertise on the design and manufacture of customized portable cutter suction dredges of all sizes and applications. DSC units are in use throughout the world in construction, environmental, mining, navigational, recreational, restoration and specialty applications. As leaders in the field of dredging solutions – from the simple to the most complicated custom dredges for special applications – DSC strives to understand the distinct characteristics of every operation's requirements. Only then will the company recommend a definitive solution.
DSC's base dredges include six different model lines, designed for different basic applications, which are further customized for specific customer requirements. The Marlin Class deep mining dredge, with its underwater pump system and high-torque cutter drive, has been designed as an efficient method for excavating deep mining deposits. The Shark Class cutter suction dredge is a tough, yet portable design, most commonly used in the sand and aggregate production arena. Often called the contractor's “dream machine,” the Barracuda Class dredge features a swinging-ladder design, used most often in waterway maintenance and lake revitalization projects. DSC's Moray Class conventional/swinging-ladder dredge was designed around the concept of a versatile design in a smaller portable package that is unmatched in the industry, and often used in environmental cleanup and irrigation applications. Rounding out the line are the Badger Class and the Wolverine Class dredges, designed for the contractor, with compact, yet portable designs that are fully functional by one operator. Several of the DSC models are available with electric power for operations requiring sustainable attributes.
