APT Global launches new line of dredge ball joints

November 4, 2017

 

The APT Global group announces today the launch of a new and improved line of dredge ball joints. The in-house developed design has been named the Maximus® ball joint and will become part of the APT Global product portfolio.

The Maximus dredge ball joint is the result of extensive Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and provides more balanced stress levels throughout the design. The lower peak stresses improve the strength of the joint, which in turn provides higher reliability during dredging operations.

“In the past decades little has changed in the shape of conventional dredge ball joints. With our new design we have made significant improvements and taken the product to the next level” says Marco Menheere, Product Manager at APT Global.

The Maximus design was developed by the new APT Global team in The Netherlands and is available for pipe diameters in the range of 300 to 1200 mm and pressure ratings up to 45 bar. Due to the flexibility of the design it can be equipped with several wear liner configurations.

APT Global is a leading ship builder, equipment manufacturer and technical service provider for the Marine, Dredging, Energy and Offshore industry.
