Dredge Valve production by Dredge Yard

Dredge Yard recently delivered dredge valves of sizes 600, 700 and 750 mm internal diameter. The valves are needed for the discharge pipeline on board of two trailing suction hopper dredgers. Fabrication was done in-house at Dredge Yard’s production facilities.

Dredge valve fabrication

The body of the dredge valve was fabricated from high tensile steel and the valve’s gate is made of corrosion resistant and hardened steel, protecting it against the rust and wear. For conservation of the outer surface of the valve a high quality marine type paint was applied to protect it against corrosion.

These types of dredge valves can be produced for three different working duties varying between 10, 20 and 30 bar according to the customer’s requirements and applications.

Reliable dredge valves to upgrade dredgers

Dredge Valves

Dredge Yard has successfully delivered dredge valves of sizes 600, 700 and 750 mm internal diameter, which were needed for the discharge pipeline on board of 2 trailing suction hopper dredgers.

Dredge gate valves are highly sophisticated components and for proper functioning and maintenance, it is very important to select the right type with the right material and pressure handling capability for long life.

Design

All the dredge valves have been designed by Dredge Yard’s team of engineers using the latest design software. Fabrication was done in-house at Dredge Yard’s production facilities.

One of the special features of the valve is the steel reinforced rubber seals making the seal very durable, making it easy to cope with the large amount of abrasive slurries and to be able to open and close smoothly in tough working conditions.

The body of the dredge valve was fabricated from high tensile steel and the valve’s gate is made of corrosion resistant and hardened steel, protecting it against the rust and wear. For conservation of the outer surface of the valve a high quality marine type paint was applied to protect it against corrosion.

Inspection

The inspection hole placed in the both sides of the valve’s body, allows for easy inspecting the dredge valve without dismantling it.

These types of dredge valves can be produced for three different working duties varying between 10, 20 and 30 bar according to the customer’s requirements and applications.

The dredge valves had to be delivered in a short time for replacement of an existing valve during maintenance of the dredgers.

Large dredge valves supplied to Van Oord

Dredge Yard successfully handed over several large dredge valves to Van Oord, a leading contractor in dredging, marine engineering and offshore projects.

The valves have an inner diameter of 1100 and 1600 mm. They control the flow of water and sand in the suction and discharge pipes from the trailing suction hopper dredgers.

Inspection large dredge valves

The dredge valves are produced in Dredge Yard’s facilities in Turkey by using latest production technologies. Additionally, to ensure high quality, they underwent tests under 12 bars. Van Oord’s representatives also inspected the valves during and after production.

Dredging components production facility opened

Production facility

The new dredging components production facilities are managed by Dredge Yard’s subsidiary Dredge Yard Makina San. Tic. LTD.ŞTI recently registered in The Republic of Turkey.

This is part of the Dredge Yard’s expansion plan for the production and assembly of several dredging components like ball joints, pumps, valves, turning glands, bow couplings and a lot of other dredging equipment needed for the dredgers and dredge pipe lines.

Dredge Yard Makina

Dredge Yard Makina San. Tic. LTD.ŞTI is located in the city Izmit of Kocaeli, surrounded by an industrial area including for heavy steel industry.

Dredge Yard Makina in collaboration with its partners in Turkey will be utilized for the production, assembly and quality control of all dredge components, using latest casting and machining technologies.

As part of the development of the new production facilities, Dredge Yard Makina has acquired special equipment to enhance its capability for higher production rate.

These new facilities will allow Dredge Yard to accommodate the rapidly growing demand of dredge related products with a high ratio of reliability and value for money.
