Verderflex Mining Pumps
Used in the manufacture of Alloys, as a pigment, for glass and ceramic industries, cobalt is a non-metallurgical metal. Cobalt is also used as a pigment in paint/lacquer industry.
To the European industries, Morocco is a key cobalt supplier. A fresh project has been commenced to boost both efficiency and productivity. The facilities used in the mining of cobalt had to be boosted in order to satisfy the requirements from the market.
By transferring 30% sulfuric acid and 25% ammonia to several baths and reactors from the storage and dilution tanks, the thirty Verderflex peristaltic hose pumps are bound to satisfy an essential task in the cobalt’s refining. In order to rinse the cobalt, the peristaltic pumps pump these fluids and especially the sulfuric acid, thereby separating the cobalt from other materials like iron, nickel and arsenic in the ore.
This production stage process is known as electrolysis. Electrolysis sees to it that the cobalt produced is purer and more concentrated.
In relation to the pH value of the cobalt that is mined, the peristaltic pump’s capacity has to be continuously adjusted. This ensures that only the precisesulfuric acid concentration for exactly the specific cobalt quantity is getting pumped. A frequency control driven by a pH meter helps in the achievement of the appropriate dosing automatically by controlling the pump speed.
Feed pump for filter press:
A filter cake with residues results from the process water that remains from the band filtration process. Collection basins are used to catch the fluids that are acidic and abrasive. Another Verderflex peristaltic hose pump is used as a centrifuge feed pump, separating a very fine powder from the process waste water.
Verderflex peristaltic hose pumps were selected as a result of successful tests by the pilot-plant. The Verderflex peristaltic pump’s robust and simple construction makes it ideal for the harsh demands in mining.
Global Pumps was established in 1977, after the need for a versatile and customer service oriented industrial pumps supplier in the market was identified. More than 35 years on, the team at Global Pumps continues to grow and develop new ways in which to effectively fulfil this mission statement.
