As one of the first projects of 2019, Dutch-based company Dredge Yard successfully delivered 50 heavy duty dredge ball joints to the Middle East for immediate use in the Gulf region. These dredge ball joints are suitable for long flexible pipe connections for the transportation of dredging sand. The pipes – and ball joints - have an internal diameter of 750mm at continuous pressure of at least 30 bar.

Manufactured in Turkey
The ball joints are manufactured at Dredge Yard facilities in collaboration with their partners in the Republic of Turkey. The manufacturing process involved casting and heat treatment of all components, followed by machining to the finest tolerances.

Dredge Yard's team of engineers supervised the manufacturing and testing process. As a follow up the team supports the customer in the Gulf region on the use of the equipment.

Low friction
The heavy duty ball joint developed by Dredge Yard can easily be assembled and disassembled.

Grease grooves ensure low friction between ball and gland. The replaceable liners are made from wear resistant materials.
