Mining involves the use of a lot of different equipment for various purposes. Mine owners get galvanized steel cable for mainly lifting products due to their reliable strength, as well as industrail pumps; an essential to the mines. Industrial pumps are used in the mining industry for dewatering, sludge/slurry transfer, runoff, and wash down areas, and must be able to handle solids, slurries, sludge, and acidic conditions. Pitbull pneumatic displacement pumps are free from impellers and motors that can erode from abrasives and clog from slurries. The Pitbull Pump design has wide-open passages that allow solids to flow freely, remain clog-free and reduce your maintenance costs.
What Typical Mining Applications Can Pitbull Pumps Handle?
- Coal mine sumps
- Sludge and slurry transfer
- Coal and coke fines
- Outdoor run-off sumps
- Wash down areas
- Coal pit, powerhouse sumps
- Condensate return
- Copper mine sumps
- Sulphuric acid tank car unloading
- Acid and refinery sludge transfer
- Salt mine sumps
- Dewatering sumps
