Vortex 4” Dredge ‘Standard’
The most powerful 4-inch ROV and diver dredge in the world, the VORTEX has removal rate performance more
commonly seen in 6-inch dredge
Vortex dredge solutions offer the highest suction on the market at 97kpa (28 in/hg) With years of experience servicing the oil and gas industry, we have developed robust and efficient ROV dredging and tooling solutions for a range of clients worldwide.
The PATENTED Vortex venturi is designed, manufactured and tested in New Zealand and shipped globally.
