Ellicott® booster pump stations are used to increase the pumping distance for any given dredge. At the same time, booster pumps can also be used to increase production on medium to long distance pumping assignments. This allows the main dredge pump to operate at high percent solids without fear of running out of horsepower.
In certain instances, booster pump stations may also take some of the load off the dredge pump and engine in the dredge itself. This helps prevent excessive wear and tear on the main dredge pump and engine.
Ellicott heavy-duty booster pump stations are designed and built as self-contained, skid-mounted units for use with any dredge. We offer standard units from 10” through 18” pump sizes from stock as diesel powered, or as electric-powered custom units.
