Mining is a process of extracting ores from earth which are valuable and can be made into useful item after processing. Pump used for the mining industries to transfer slurry which may be corrosive and erosive and may contain explosive media in the mining industry.
Sujal Engineering is the pumps specialist for mining industries. Due to the ongoing infrastructure projects in South Africa, pumps and pump parts are in high demand. The ideal pump for mining is:
Slurry Pumps are used to transfer slurry from one point to another. In theory, a pump increases the pressure of a fluid to give it the driving force required for flow. The Working Principle is that slurry enters the pump through the eye of the rotating impeller which imparts a circular motion. The slurry is thrown outwards by centrifugal force and travels between the blades of the impeller. The slurry attains a high speed by the time it reaches the edge of the impeller. In the casing, its high-speed energy is converted into pressure energy.
Sujal Engineering’s premium quality manufactured pumps are widely recognized and used in the South African mining industry to cater to a challenging slurry. Our pumps which increase the pressure of a liquid and solid particles with the help of centrifugal force and converts electric energy into kinetic energy to pump the slurry are in high demand. This mechanism makes pumping hazardous and light slurry liquids easy and maintenance free.
Our slurry pumps can be used to convey corrosive slurry with a low amount of energy. The pumps are available as a single as well as double-acting models which assure high function and increased performance with low operating and maintenance costs. The parts of the pump which come in contact with the hazardous and erosive materials to be pumped are made of either stainless steel or cast steel.
Due to the successful testing in mining industries, our pumps are the first choice product for critical process operations. Our pumps can be used as part of a complete system or as a stand-alone piece of equipment and can be customized as per client demand.
Water which comes in direct contact with the mining operation is often dirty and contains foreign materials such as drill cuttings and suspended solids generated by underground ramp traffic. Industrial pumps are required to dewater the area and keep it clean.
The fluids in mining applications could be extremely volatile and can range from superheated water laden with pyrite, iron or sand, to emulsified brine phase. These fluids can corrode the mining assembly overtime and hence an industrial centrifugal stainless steel pump is of extreme importance here.
Suspended solids also can cause overheating by accumulating in the cooling chamber and, if concentrated enough, can damage the mining assembly chamber. Suspended solids are another reason to carefully monitor water levels and make sure dirty water is kept separate from clean water.
Mining slurries tend to be abrasive and need to be pumped out immediately for the smooth functioning of a system
