What is the composition of the mud pipe?
The mud discharge pipe is a pipe configured for the suction dredger or suction dredger to discharge mud. Generally made of cast steel or steel plate, each section is 4~7m long, and the wall thickness is related to the pipe diameter and the pressure, usually 5~10mm. The mud pipes connected from the stern of the dredger are supported by buoys to float on the water. Each group is composed of two round, oval, rectangular, or boat-shaped buoys, and each pipe is connected by a rubber sleeve. Clamp with iron clips. Most of the shore mud pipes are connected by flange bolts and are equipped with elbows, short pipes, and branch pipes, which can be sent to the mud dumping area. On the shore, the mud pipes set in the nearshore waters are erected on the mud pipe racks. The joints of floating pipes and shore pipes should meet the requirements of extension, contraction, and swing. They are usually composed of spherical or rubber joints, telescopic pipes, and short pipes.
Working principle of mud pipe
The sludge discharge pipe is considered to have a place for removing the sediment in the pipe and venting the dirt during maintenance. The sludge valve should be installed at the lowest point of the original pipeline. How does the sludge pipework? When the water is supplied, doesn't the water flow into the sludge pipe? Also, does it overflow from the overflow pipe to the inspection well when the sediment has accumulated to a certain depth in the wet well?
