Float system for excavators
During excavation work along the coastline with (raised) digging
machines there is a serious risk these machines will sink.
Sometimes such machine can even not be recovered before high tide
is arriving. The machine is flooded in sea water and is heavily
damaged or even is completely out of order.
Floats for emergency situations
Buitink Technology developed a float system to have these
excavation machine floating on the water in case of emergency.
Practically no damage will occur.
The example on this page deals with the recovery of a raised
excavation machine, having a total weight of 90 tons.
'Swimming floats' for excavation machines
Inflatable floats or "swimming floats" can be inflated using air
pumps, included in the delivery of floats. However these floats can
also be inflated through the use of high pressure air cylinders.
They can be activated manually or automatically by a sensor in
contact with water.
