Slurry handling

Less maintenance, more efficiency

Slurry handling is vital in maximizing minerals processing plant’s productivity and efficiency. It plays a key role in mining processes involving water and other liquids.

Reduce maintenance costs

One annual maintenance break instead of three led to 67% spare parts costs savings.

Less water

New pumps required 75% less maintenance and saved over 6 billion liters of water.

Decrease energy consumption

17% increase in pump efficiency reduced energy consumption by 15%. 

Save in service costs

Natural rubber-lined pipes have five times longer wear compared to typical polyethylene pipes.

Even small improvements in slurry handling efficiency can have a drastic impact on mining profitability

Insufficient slurry handling may result in bringing the whole minerals processing plant to a halt or leading to inefficiencies in important processes such as grinding, classification, separation, dewatering, and tailings handling.

Metso offers complete solutions for slurry handling including equipment, parts, as well as optimization and maintenance services. From product selection and technical support to comprehensive service agreements, everything can be matched for every customer’s application.

Our slurry pumps, slurry pipes, and slurry hoses are designed to improve slurry handling efficiency and reduce operating costs. Services and parts, in turn, increase productivity by cutting maintenance costs and adding uptime.
