Slurry transportation in mining
Slurry transportation ensures that pumping costs in mining do not get out of hand
Slurry transportation and slurry pumping are the cornerstones of slurry handling. In mining operations, pumps are needed to generate the required push to get the slurry moving, and slurry transportation architecture, consisting of pipes, hoses, couplings and gaskets of varying diameters, among other things, ensures that the slurry runs smoothly to the desired destination.
An optimal slurry transportation system is designed to support pumps and other minerals processing equipment. In a well-functioning pipeline slurry flows effortlessly, resulting in less wear and energy consumption.
Metso’s slurry transportation solutions consist of equipment, parts and services such as pipelines, pipes, hoses, slurry valves, spare and wear parts, as well as, maintenance and optimization services.
