Quality control of dredging equipment

Quality control of dredging equipment

At Dredge Yard we see quality control as one of our top priorities. We specialize in ECO Dredgers: economically designed and highly efficient auger or cutter suction dredgers. We have the reputation of providing high performing products. This reputation is earned due to controlling all phases of the development process like design, manufacturing and testing.

In-house quality control

Our engineer team designs all ECO Dredgers by using the latest CAD technologies. We produce components in co-operation with partners with high quality control on manufacturing facilities. After that they are tested under strict ISO and ASTM standards and double tested at third-party for verification.

During and after production, Dredge Yard tests all individual components rigorously:

  • The chemical composition and mechanical properties test.
  • Measurement test of all dimensions after casting.
  • Ultra sonic testing, magnetic particle.
  • Surface roughness test and dye penetrant inspection for critical parts.
  • Measurement test of all dimensions after machining, hardness test.
  • Assembly and interchangeability test.
  • Visual inspection for all parts during and after assembly.

We record all measurements and tests in our own database.

Dredge Yard management explains:

“We want to involve our customers and suppliers in all our activities in a very early stage of the projects. To ensure on time delivery, cost-effective production, low maintenance, low operation cost and high-grade of reliability of the products, we implement customer’s experiences in the design. Our customers are encouraged to witness any test in our production facilities.”

This is why Dredge Yard grabbed the attention of many dredging companies from all over the world.
