‘Dreducation’ class open to the industry

By |  April 8, 2014

DSC Dredge LLC is hosting its 10th annual Dreducation Class, taught by Charles Johnson, on June 13. The class will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Omni Royal Orleans in New Orleans.

According to a press release, the class is industry-specific but not brand-specific. It’s open to the general public. The class is designed to educate both industry newcomers and current dredge operators on how to become more productive and enable operators to work more efficiently, DSC Dredge says.

DSC Dredge adds that the class will cover several topics, including how centrifugal pumps work; how to read a theoretical pump curve; dredge pump efficiency and how it affects HP requirements; types of excavators and their advantages and disadvantages; pipeline size, velocity, friction and production; and reading and interpreting gauges.

Registration for the class, which is $425, includes lunch and program materials. Contact Linda DeFoe at lldefoe@dscdredge.com or by phone at 985-479-8032 to register.
