Pumps for the mining industry
In the mining industry, important minerals and raw materials required by today’s modern society are transported every day. Mining companies require reliable pumps for a broad range of demanding tasks to achieve reliable operation. The tasks range from the transport of sludge via drainage up to the dosing of chemicals and subsequent neutralization.
Robustness of pumps in mining as a criterion
In the harsh environment of mines and processing plants with a variety of aggressive and abrasive media, the selection of pumps depends not only on the pump output but also on their robustness and ease of maintenance. At first glance, mines appear to differ significantly due to their differences in natural mineral sources, which demand different conveying methods. However, many commonalities can be seen in the further processing of minerals. That also applies to the different pump technologies that are employed in the mining industry.

Mining Pumps refer to the types of pumps required as part of the mining process. Slurry pumps, centrifugal pumps, magnetic drive pumps, submersible pumps, borehole pumps, diaphragm pumps, and self-priming pumps are all used in the mining industry, depending on the fluid transfer and application needed. Mining pumps work for abrasive sludge dewatering, mineral processing, slurry transfer, reagent (acid and chemical) dosing, water supply, and boosting waste water and tailing transfer.
