Mechanical excavation requires several types of equipment.

Excavators mechanically remove sand and water, placing it on the shore.

Loaders move sand from the pile to the haul trucks.

Haul trucks deposit the sand at the processing plant.

A single Ellicott dredge can be used to accomplish the same task.

Hydraulic dredging has multiple benefits over mechanical excavation: less labor, less energy and emissions, less capital costs, and less maintenance costs.

During hydraulic dredging, the fines are washed from the sand while being transferred to the plant.

When pumping distances and/or vertical elevation increases, optional booster pumps can help maintain optimum production rates.

Hydraulic dredging allows for direct transfer to processing plant, which reduces the rehandling of material.

Pipeline can also deposit sand directly on the shore to be sold for use in various applications.

Larger Ellicott dredges are available for projects requiring deeper digging depths up to 120 feet (37 meters).

Using an Ellicott hydraulic dredge for your sand mining needs, you can expect to reduce your cost per ton and increase your operational safety and reliability.
