A great variety of media must be conveyed in mining, such as wastewater, mineral brine, thickened sludge, suspensions, filtrates, tailing and explosives. The NEMO® and TORNADO® pumps are an ideal solution for abrasive and viscous media. NETZSCH always ensure the right solution for your process. Positive displacement pumps are successfully proved in many places, such as:
- Mineral Slurry Transfer
- Back filling applications
- Gland seal water
- Chemical dosing
- Thickener underflow pumps
- Yellow Cake
- Wastewater processing
Safety in mining and at construction sites where explosives are used was a problem for a long time, because the storage and transport of “volatile” explosives always constitute an enormous risk. In order to reduce the danger, there has for some time been greater use of pumpable emulsion explosives. More...
