HÄNDLE’s line of souring plant excavators includes a series of type-EKBL longitudinal-dredging excavators and a collection of type-EKBQ cross dredgers. Both type series are available with 30-, 45-, 60-, 75- or 100-liter buckets with respective discharge capacities of 45, 60, 80, 100 or 130 m³/h. Customsized buckets can be provided with volumetric capacities up to 200 liter. Longitudinal souring plants are the most-used type of dredging retrieval system. They offer storage capacities ranging from roughly 1,000 to 15,000 m³. Longitudinal-dredging excavators come with ladder lengths ranging from 7 m to 18 m and a maximum swivel range of 90°(+45° to -45°). Cross-dredging souring plants enable optimal blending. Their storage capacities range between 3,000 and 35,000 m³. The cross dredger and its excavator traverser are designed for basin widths of 10 to 30 m and basin depths of 6 to 11 m.
