Dredger is described as a self-propelled vessel used to recover silt from the bed of a river, port, estuary etc.

A dredger is a type of industrial equipment used to remove sediment or debris from bodies of water or to create new waterways or land areas. They are commonly used in the mining, construction, and environmental industries.

Examples of dredgers include:

  1. Cutter suction dredgers: These dredgers use a rotating cutter head to cut through and loosen sediment, which is then sucked up by a pump and discharged through a pipe.

  2. Bucket dredgers: These dredgers use a series of buckets attached to a chain or cable to scoop up sediment and debris from the bottom of a waterway.

  3. Hopper dredgers: These dredgers have a large hopper or hold for storing dredged material, which is then transported and discharged at a separate location.

  4. Jet suction dredgers: These dredgers use a high-pressure water jet to loosen and dislodge sediment, which is then sucked up by a pump and discharged through a pipe.

Other similar types of industrial equipment used in dredging and excavation include:

  1. Excavators: These are machines with a large bucket or scoop attached to a hydraulic arm, used to dig and remove soil, rock, or debris.

  2. Backhoes: These are machines with a smaller bucket or scoop attached to a hydraulic arm, used for digging and excavation in tighter spaces.

  3. Trenchers: These are machines used for digging narrow trenches for pipelines or cables, typically using a rotating chain or blade.
