Benefits and Features
The self-sharpening tooth design combined with an increased wear material ratio offer the most efficient solution. The tooth deflectors protect the adapters from wear and extend their wear life, avoiding the need for adapters additional protection, like chocky bars or hard facing. As a consequence your cutterhead’s repair and maintenance costs are reduced. The pin can be used several times, even in the most extreme conditions.
The stabilization in all load directions guarantees the reliability of the entire system. The tooth-adapter contact surfaces are orientated according to the direction of the main forces, allowing better load distribution.
SAFE & QUICK MAINTENANCE
The hammerless locking solution makes tooth assembly and disassembly easier, safer and faster for the operators, reducing the machine's downtime. The vertical position of the pin facilitates the access to it and avoids pin loss during tooth replacement.
The smooth system design allows material to flow towards the inside of the cutterhead, increasing its suction efficiency and productivity. The optimal functioning of the system reduces the vibrations of the dredger while the increase of the tooth wear material and the durability of the adapters reduce the cost/m³.
Hammerless Tooth-Adapter SystemThe hammerless DMET Tooth-System has been especially designed for increasing the productivity of your Cutter Suction Dredger.
The most powerful mega-dredgers on the market are already equipped with DMET.
Tooth DesignsA range of 4 Tooth Designs and 3 sizes are available within the DMET Teeth Product Family.
Designs are here presented from the ones suited for harder terrains on the left to the ones suited for smoother terrains on the right.
We help you to choose the right combination of Design and Size to achieve the maximum productivity for your Cutterhead and Dredger.
Adapters DesignsWe have developped 3 Designs available in 3 Sizes for left or right rotation:
> The Tube Design TBL (for left rotation) or TBR (for right rotation) adapted to rock terrain.
> The Wing Design WIL (for left rotation) or WIR (for right rotation) adapted to sand&clay terrain.
> The weld-on Design WNL (for left rotation) or WNR (for right rotation) for backring.
Material flowThe smooth system Design combined with the right digging angle allows material to easily flow towards the inside of the Cutterhead as shown by the arrows in the picture.
The dredger suction efficiency and cutterhead productivity are consequently increased.
