WMS adds dredge pipe floaters

Dredge pipe floaters are part of the WMS expansion towards the commercial sector
Industry Database

Wardle Marine Services has been appointed the sole UK distributor for PMS Dock Marine, increasing their focus on the commercial marine sector.

Expansions to their range include safety markers, wave breakers, debris barriers and pipe floaters. All these products are made of LDPE or HDPE, providing both versatility and robustness in service.

The pipe floaters have been used for dredging operations, including sand extraction, and are available at specifications between 600ltr/63kg and 1000ltr/86kg. Pipe diameters can range from 45cm to 87cm.  Filled most commonly with polyurethane or polystyrene, they are able to stay afloat with cracks or other damage. Available in yellow or red, they are corrosion resistant thanks to the polyurethane body, suitable for use in low water levels and have a life span which is triple that of concrete or steel pipe floaters.
