The IMS Depth Master can maintain deeper channels from 12m to 18m in depth.
The dredge can be hooked up to a standard pipeline and pump material to a dewatering site onshore. Another option is fitting the IMS Bi-Directional Broadcaster attachment to the discharge; if permitted by local authorities, sediment can then be sprayed out of the channel and back into the natural current.
The Depth Master is a cost-effective solution for navigation channel maintenance at ports. It is self-propelled and easily transportable. The maximum 305mm discharge line makes the discharge manageable when dewatering space is limited.
The optional GPS system allows the operator to manoeuvre the dredge cutter into the existing channel design and remove no more than is necessary to fulfill the maintenance contract. The cuts can be tracked against the pre-dredging survey to show the client that the contract has been completed within scope.

1 This represents total flow capabilities of the pump – water and solids.
2 This represents theoretical maximum solids production. This is calculated based on 25% solids by volume and 1 complete hour cutting and pumping material. This estimate does not take into account material properties, time used for positioning, pumping distance or elevation. Buyer should consult IMS for production estimates based specifically around their application.
