Moving high volumes of dense slurry, pumps comprise the “heart” of a plant as they transport the slurry to other processes. Any loss in pump productivity, much less premature failure, will affect the entire plant. We work constantly to provide solutions that improve productivity and lower your total cost of ownership.
Slurry pumping technology: feeding the lifeblood of your plant
Within a diverse number of industries, and especially in mining, horizontal slurry pumps play a critical role in overall plant productivity. Using our vast experience in pumping technology, we understand your challenges with throughput, downtime, wear life and overall efficiency. That is why we provide complete slurry pumping solutions.
We have engineered our horizontal slurry pumps to optimise your performance, maximise your wear life and efficiency, and lower your operating costs.
Abrasive slurries are common in most applications and create high wear in the pump interior. It is not uncommon for yearly parts costs to equal 50 percent of a pump’s original capital cost. We combat this problem through pump designs that will increase wear life and improve efficiency.
Our slurry pumping innovations include the millMAX™ centrifugal slurry pump line that is designed for aggressive duties and include high pressure slurry pumps as well as high head pumps. The millMAX slurry pump product family features a proprietary, patented suction-side sealing system that eliminates inefficient recirculation and the grinding of slurry. What’s more, millMAX is the ONLY slurry pump line available that can eliminate both problems effectively.
Our slurry pumps range in suction diameter from 50 mm to 850 mm (2-in to 34-in). To give an idea of production capabilities, our largest pump will fill a 50-meter Olympic swimming pool in less than 15 minutes. A standard garden hose would take two to three months to do the same.
Long, predictable wear life
Predictable life means matching your pumps to your maintenance cycles resulting less downtime, lower inventory requirements and fewer maintenance shutdowns.
Higher slurry pumping efficiency reduces power consumption – and/or allows pumping greater volumes with the same motor size.
Easy pump adjustments and maintenance protect your workers from hazards.
Quick and reliable spare parts availability
With conveniently located Customer Service, Super Centres and Service Centres around the globe, we can quickly provide you with spare parts for your slurry pumping operations.
Our horizontal slurry pump spare wear parts are made to the highest quality you can rely on.
