Slurry pumps save time and money in mining and mineral excavation

Work hard, around the clock. Mining’s harsh environments are complex and hazardous. Submersible pumps need to operate safely in potentially explosive environments, abrasive slurries, and chemically corrosive solutions. IFS offers an extensive portfolio of mining and minerals industry solutions ranging from small dewatering pumps to large, high-capacity, heavy-duty, MSHA rated pumps. These solutions are available with industry leading lead times.

If your Concerns in Mining Environments Include:

  • Heavy slurry with large particles, dust, dirt, and rocks 
  • Gritty and abrasive materials that erode cast iron and rubber-lined pumps
  • Shorter pump life cycle due to harsh environment
  • Pump failure from acidic mine water
  • Overheating due to 24/7 production
  • Explosive environments

Industrial Flow Solutions Offers the Following Pump and Control Solutions:

  • High flow, high head heavy duty dewatering and slurry pumps
  • Severe abrasion- and corrosion resistant solids handling
  • Hardened wear parts
  • High temperature capability (up to 200°F continuous duty)
  • Explosion proof pumps (MSHA certified)
