NETZSCH Announces Mine Dewatering Pumps and Pump Skids
Small and compact movable units ideal for addressing dewatering challenges
Exton, PA – NETZSCH Pumps North America and its German headquarters NETZSCH Pumps & Systems announce the availability of safe, reliable and cost efficient mine dewatering pumps and pump skids ideal for mines that require a small and compact movable unit to address their dewatering challenges. Also available for mining applications are NEMO® progressive cavity pumps and the self-priming, valve-less TORNADO® T2 positive displacement pump.
The base mine dewatering pump skid unit includes a tank, progressing cavity pump with right angle gearmotor, inspection ladder, valves, and piping – all mounted on a common galvanized steel skid. Also available are optional units with a control panel (with or without VFD on a removable stand) and instrumentation, including high/low level switches for the tank or dry run protection for the pump. Individual pumps are available to retrofit existing skids.
The tank includes baffle/divider screens to filter out any solids too big to fit through the pump. The pump is located to the side of the tank, enabling easier access and maintenance. The standard unit uses a right angle gearmotor to save space and eliminate the need for a belt drive, but belt and pulley designs are also available. Operator safety is enhanced by the inclusion of a removable inspection ladder with hand rails and a removable safety screen for the tank.
Available in a wide range of flow and pressure capabilities, the pump and tank can be constructed from carbon steel, stainless steel, galvanized steel, and Halar/rubber-lined steel, depending on application needs.
NETZSCH also offers the NEMO progressive cavity pump, known for its continuous, pressure-stable, gentle and low-pulsation conveyance of almost any process fluid without being affected by fluctuations in pressure and viscosity.
Another option for mining applications is the TORNADO T2 positive displacement pump, a self-priming, valve-less pump that offers maximum operational performance, high reliability and durability, ease of maintenance, and a low total life cycle cost. With a revolutionary design that has been recently reengineered to maximize uptime, the TORNADO T2 pump features metal lobes running inside a metal housing with an elastomer liner.
