Combi Wear Parts has designed and developed wear part systems for dredging vessels since 1979. The systems are used for dredging of new ports and waterways worldwide. Because dredgers must work in everything from clay to bedrock, the wear is so enormous that the teeth sometimes need to be replaced several times each hour.
Dredgers have very high costs, and it is therefore essential that the teeth can be used for a maximum period before being replaced. Furthermore, the teeth must be changed very quickly and safely.
Durability, safety and convenience
The Combi Wear Parts T-SYSTEM, developed together with Vosta LMG, focuses on durability, safety and convenience. Nowadays, most of the world’s largest dredging companies use T-SYSTEM.
Benefits of T-SYSTEM wear parts.
- The tooth is held in place with a patented screw joint which substantially reduces the time it takes to change the tooth.
- The proportion of hard-wearing material in the tooth’s overall weight has been increased, giving the tooth 40% higher utilization than before.
- The adapter has a stronger geometry and can be used five times longer before it needs replacing.
- The teeth weigh less and are therefore much safer to handle onboard.
