Equipment Roundup: Floats and Pipe – Neptune Flotation
Terri Carruth left sales and David Jordan market manager exhibit the Neptune pipe floats at the Agg1 conference in San Antonio in March.
Neptune’s Stack-N-Lock feature allows safe stacking of the float sections for storage or shipping.
Neptune Flotation manufactures floats for dredge discharge pipe from in six inches (152mm) to 30 inches (762mm) diameter. Important features are the Clamp Tite ™ feature – a built-in rubber flange that prevents the float from slipping on the pipe; a Stack-N-Lock™ feature to provide secure storing and shipping of the floats; and EzGlide™ tapered ends that decrease water and wind resistance. Neptune also provides cable and hose floats in sizes from two inches (50mm) to four inches (100mm) and float balls for sub-surface suspension of pipe.
