Maximus Dredge Ball Joints


The Maximus® dredge ball joint is a new line of bayonet type dredge ball joint that provides more balanced stress levels throughout the design.  It was developed by APT in The Netherlands and resulted from extensive Finite Element Analysis (FEA). The lower peak stresses inside the Maximus® improve the strength of the joint, which in turn provides higher reliability during dredging operations. Due to the flexibility of the design the Maximus® dredge ball joint can be equipped with several wear liner configurations.
