Pumps for Mining and Explosives Industries


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 
  • Dewatering 
  • Explosives
  • Back filling applications 
  • Gland seal water
  • Chemical dosing
  • Leachates
  • Thickener underflow pumps
  • Yellow Cake
  • Wastewater processing
Success Stories in the Mining Sector

Success Stories in the Mining Sector

NEMO® progressing cavity pump speeds up the delivery of ammonium nitrate emulsion to mining customers

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...

NETZSCH Pumps for Copper Extraction in Mines

Special base frame for reagent pumps reduces maintenance: Pump design enhances precision and reliability

Until January 2017, a copper beneficiation plant in Zambia was using pumps from six different manufacturers. Attributable to the large number of different models, this resulted in a steadily growing inventory of similar spare parts and maintenance procedures. More...

Aggressive gold sludge: Special pump technology delivers long service life without the addition of water

Global demand for gold and silver remains as high as ever. Precious metals are not only sought after by investors, but are indispensable materials in modern industry. However, mining these resources places machines under extreme stress and can increase the high price of the raw material. More...

NEMO® SY Progressing Cavity Pump prevents dangerous heat generation in emulsion explosives

Transalpine rail and road tunnels, dams for hydro-electric and storage power plants – the number of major construction sites which need significant explosive work has increased considerably over recent years. The requirements for explosives have been changing. More...

Product Range for Mining and Explosive Industries

NEMO® Progressing Cavity Pumps

NEMO® progressing cavity pumps have a very broad application range and are used in all branches of industry for the continuous, pressure-stable, gentle and low-pulsation conveyance of almost any substance. One advantage for the operator is that such a valveless positive-displacement pump is also capable of transporting stringy material safely.
