Dredge Yard develops new design for water ball joint

Water ball joint 700

Dredge Yard has successfully delivered water ball joint 700 to Baku, the capital and largest city of Azerbaijan, as well as the largest city on the Caspian Sea.

These ball joints have been produced by using new innovative design developed by Dredge Yard’s team of engineers which makes it much more economical and suitable for transporting water.

Water ball joint 700 mm is suitable for 10 bar working pressure and has been tested up to 18 bars. They have a tilting angle 15 degrees to all directions. The grease grooves are provided in the case which makes the lubrication work much easier and effective than before.

Design

A new design of rubber seal is provided in the case to make the water ball joint tight even at higher pressure than working pressure. All the ball joints have been produced in Dredge Yard’s facilities by using latest production technologies and casting expertise.

To assure high quality and hence, better life, all the ball joints underwent through thorough tests and inspections during and after production. They were delivered in 4 batches by trucks directly from Dredge Yard’s facilities to Baku in Azerbaijan, to ensure shortest delivery time.

Dredge Yard is currently producing heavy duty water ball joint for I.D. 1200 mm using the same design principle and new sealing design.
