Global Pump’s project team was recently contacted by a mine site in Western Australia to produce a dual water pump skid for a safety shower and drinking water. The pump skid is designed to pump fresh water in remote areas where there may not always be access to electricity.
Our team needed to source a diesel engine to fit to the pump that met the mine sites strict noise and pollution regulations. In addition to these regulations, a diesel controller was necessary to read the engines fuel level, oil pressure, engine speed and temperature. Pressure start/stop systems were also required in order to provide a continuous water flow; this works like opening and closing a tap.
For this project, a water-cooled Isuzu Diesel Engine with a 27 L fuel tank was selected along with a diesel controller which was programmed to be BMS compatible. Regarding noise regulations, an acoustic cover was placed to muffle sounds in accordance with the mine sites requirements. The pressure start/stop system offered a flowrate of 10-20 m3/hr, which can vary depending on the motor size.
