Press release date: August 21, 2012
Grand Terrace, CA - Wilden®, the worldwide leader in air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump technology, is pleased to announce that it will be exhibiting in Booth No. 2063 at the upcoming MINExpo International® 2012. Slated for Sept. 24-26 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, this year's MINExpo will feature more than 1,800 exhibiting companies spread over 850,000 square feet in 12 exhibition halls in the LVCC.
At the show, Wilden will highlight its Stallion® Series Solids Handling Air-Operated Double-Diaphragm (AODD) Pump. Stallion pumps are designed to excel in harsh mining environments and have a history of successful use in metalliferous, coal and other open-cut and underground mines in site dewatering and general transfer applications.
Wilden Stallion Series pumps are ideal for use in mining operations because they have handles that allow easy movement of the pump and a screen base that keeps larger-than-acceptable solids from entering the fluid inlet. The screen bases are constructed of polyurethane, which absorbs the shock-and decreases the possibility of damage-0when the pump is dropped into a hole for dewatering. Stallion pumps also feature Wilden's Pro-Flo X(TM) Air Distribution System (ADS), which maximizes pump flexibility and control through its patented Energy Management System (EMS(TM)).
Stallion pumps are available in three sizes-PX4 (1-1/2 in.), PX8 (2 in.) and PX15 (3 in.)-with flow rates ranging from 305 L/min (81 gpm) to 776 L/min (205 gpm), suction lifts from 5.7 meters (18.6 ft.) to 9.2 meters (30.1 ft.) and maximum discharge pressures to 125 psi. The pumps can handle solids from 13 mm (1/2 in.) to 25 mm (1 in.) in size.
