Slurry pumping

Slurry pumping

Reduce pumping costs in minerals processing

Slurry pumps represent only about 5% of all centrifugal pumps installed in the mining industry, but slurry pumping is responsible for up to 80 % of the total operating pumping costs. Due to high operating expenses, even small improvements in pumping efficiency reduce the total pumping costs significantly.
