Truflo’s Jumbo Pumps are a high performing hard rock face dewatering solution designed specifically for Jumbo Drilling Rigs used in snoring applications. Our Jumbo Pumps have an output rated precisely at 10-12L/sec up to a 70m head. They are built to withstand the most challenging work environment while outlasting typical submersible pumps being used as face pumps.
Manufactured with extremely durable high-chrome iron and fast-change impeller shimming gaskets that ensure peak performance, Truflo Jumbo Pumps can last up to three times longer than submersible pumps traditionally used in decline developements. Designed to handle the specific needs of hard rock face mining, the hard-wearing Truflo Jumbo Pumps are manufactured to better handle the tough shot-crete fibres used in shoring than competing pumps. This is because the impeller and wear parts are so tough and does not need to be replaced very oftern, only the spacer shim gaskets.
Our Jumbo Pumps are built to perform in snore applications. They are appropriate for use in underground face dewatering, tunnelling, longwall dewatering, where roof and wall bolting occurs, sump drainage and general dewatering. The flotation suction strainer that comes with the pump floats on the water surface sucking from a mere 25mm (1”) below the surface effectively strains the bulk of shot-crete pump wearing fibres and helps keep up out of the mud. Some of our clients have testified that, compared with other products, the Truflo Jumbo Pump is ‘a safer, more efficient and less expensive way of removing water from the face’ than the traditional submersible pump method.
Our pumps provide super-resilient, super-efficient hard rock face dewatering performance that boosts face drilling efficiencies, dependability and mining companies’ profits:
- Dry-run Hydro-Cycle Mechanical Seals
Dry-running won’t result in seal damage. Seals are lubricated via a re-circulating oil reservoir. Re-circulation provides indefinite dry running.
- Impeller Shimming
Restores your pump to as-new performance in 10 minutes whilst underground by removing spacer shim gaskets as required – this can extend your impeller life by up to three times.
- Fast Pump Rebuilds
Pumps are designed to be serviced quickly and easily while still mounted on the Jumbo vehicle.
- Flotation Suction Strainer
Pumps are supplied with a flotation strainer designed specifically for use in proximity to the hard rock development face.
- Heavy Duty Pump Base
The pump base is designed with a hot-dipped galvanised coating that is compliant with high quality manufacturing standards.
- Dry-run Hydro-Cycle Mechanical Seals
- Pump Engineering
Designed specifically by mining engineers for the underground mining industry, our pumps are made from super-tough high-chrome-iron parts.
- Dry Prime Priming
Pumps may use waste cooling water or compressed air when no water is available. Strong suction with rapid priming capability is provided regardless of the application.
Our Jumbo Pumps also provide several safety features that improve the compliance of your site with Government safety regulation. No electric cables sit in front of the jumbo pump during drilling, meaning no damage can be sustained by the power supply unit. Also, no heavy pumps that require lifting, only a light suction hose. Finally, the electric motor is located away from water, further reducing the risk of potential damage to electrical systems.
In summary, wherever tunnelling, mining or similar equipment are used Jumbo Pumps are the smart choice to use. They enhance the usefulness of the tunneling or drilling rigs they attach to, creating a drilling machine with superior dewatering abilities all in the one unit. The superior build qualities of Truflo Jumbo Pumps make this combination a highly prized asset to any underground hard rock mine operation.
