Dredge Yard has successfully completed the delivery of the heavy duty Dredge Ball Joint 650 to a dredging company in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The ball joints delivered to Saudi Arabia are designed and manufactured by Dredge Yard.
The ball joints are capable for working pressure of 20 bar and discharge pipe diameter of 650mm. Wear resistant liner is assembled in the case to increase the life time of the ball joint. A rubber seal is provided in the case to make the ball joint water tight during pressure. Both of them, the case liner and the rubber seal are considered wear parts but the can be easily renewed.
These types of ball joints that have been delivered to S.A. have a 15 degrees tilting angle to all directions. The grease grooves are provided in the stiffened gland to reduce corrosion and the friction between the gland and the ball. The ball joint is provided with one locking pin to prevent the gland from any sliding movement during operation.
The ball joint will be used for transport of sand, gravel and stones from the Cutter Suction Dredger.
