Dredge booster pump application in land reclamation

In coastal land reclamation projects, belt boats are commonly used to transport sand to the reclamation site. Here are the detailed steps involved in the usage of belt boats for sand transport:

  1. Preparation: The belt boat is prepared for the sand transport operation. This involves ensuring that the boat is in proper working condition, the conveyor belt system is functional, and the necessary equipment and materials are available on board.
  2. Loading the sand: The belt boat approaches a designated sand source, such as a sand mine or a dredging area. The boat’s conveyor belt system is positioned over the source of sand, and the belt starts moving. The sand is scooped up by the conveyor belt and transported into the hold or storage area of the boat.
  3. Sand hopper: Once the sand is loaded onto the belt boat, it is transferred to a sand hopper located on the boat. The sand hopper serves as a temporary storage area for the sand before it is further processed and transported. The sand hopper is designed to handle a large quantity of sand and is equipped with mechanisms to control the flow of sand.
  4. Dilution with water: In order to facilitate the pumping process and make the sand easier to transport, water is added to the sand hopper. The water helps to dilute the sand and create a slurry-like mixture. The amount of water added depends on the desired consistency of the sand-water mixture.
  5. Mixing and homogenizing: Once water is added to the sand hopper, mixing mechanisms inside the hopper are activated to ensure proper blending of the sand and water. This helps in achieving a consistent slurry mixture with an even distribution of sand particles.
  6. Pumping the sand: After the sand is adequately mixed with water in the sand hopper, pumps are used to transport the machine-made sand over long distances. These pumps are typically powerful and capable of pushing the sand-water mixture through pipelines or hoses.
  7. Pipeline installation: A network of pipelines or hoses is laid out from the belt boat to the reclamation site. The pipelines are carefully installed along the desired route, taking into consideration factors such as distance, elevation changes, and obstacles. The sand-water mixture is pumped into the pipelines, which act as conduits for transporting the sand slurry.
  8. Reclamation site: At the reclamation site, the sand-water mixture is discharged from the pipelines into the designated area. The mixture is carefully distributed and spread using various techniques, such as dredging or land-building machinery. The sand settles and forms the foundation for the land reclamation project.

These steps outline the general process involved in using belt boats to transport sand in coastal land reclamation projects. However, it’s important to note that specific procedures and equipment used may vary depending on the project’s requirements and the available resources.
