It's a well-known fact that all mining pumps are not created equal. This is most evident when comparing pumps designed with mining applications in mind to other pumps that you might generously term 'for less rugged use' as their primary function. What puts mining pumps in a league of their own? Global Pumps, Australia's supplier for all manner of heavy duty and specialised mining pumps, is uniquely qualified to provide some insight.
Mining pumps are designed not only to move liquid, but solid materials mixed in with the liquid, an abrasive mixture known as slurry. The result is an exceptionally durable pump with multiple capabilities. Mining pumps are primarily used to pump crushed up mineral ores, but they can also incorporate technologies that make it easier to remove liquid from the concentrated slurry, or separate various minerals. The durability of these devices cannot be overstated, and there are many stories from the field attesting to the incredible rigidity of pumps for mining.
Different mining pumps such Peristaltic pumps for concentrated slurry, lime dosing and reagent metering duties, centrifugal non-metallic sealless pumps for corrosive and/or hazardous solutions, helical rotor (Progressive cavity) pumps for flocculants, polymers and high viscosity fluids, centrifugal rubber-lined pumps (horizontal and vertical sump) for abrasive slurries, air operated diaphragm pumps, chemical dosing pumps and turn-key packaged pumping systems.
