Mining pumps are used for a wide range of applications in the mining industry. It’s common for ground water, a range of slurry or other solid particles to pool at mining sites, preventing further drilling and rock excavation. Underground reservoirs can similarly require draining if there are minerals or metals identified in the rock in such areas. Pumps are used to transport water from underground to the surface using a system of rotary mechanisms.

Also, mining pump design is applicable for use in mineral processing, reagent dosing, tailing, water supply, boosting and wastewater transfer.

Most pumps (including mining pumps) feature a variety of rotary mechanism. A turbine transports water from a suction eye to a rubber lined discharge pipe. The use of a pump requires electrical energy, so a power supply is needed to operate one.

Dewatering Pumps

Mining Pumps refer to the types of pumps required as part of the mining process. The list of pumps used in mining includes:

Vertical slurry pumps

Centrifugal slurry pumps

Magnetic drive pumps

Submersible pumps

Borehole pumps

Diaphragm pumps

Self-priming horizontal pumps

These are all used in the mining industry, depending on the fluid transfer and application needed. We sell these varieties of pump and more pumps used to remove different types of slurry from mining sites at Truflo pumps.

Mining Pumps Market Trends

Increased global demand for mining pumps has been identified in a recent industry report. According to the report, the mining pumps market is predicted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of approximately 2.9% between 2018 and 2018.

The rising prices of metals and other mined commodities requires the implementation of new and innovative pump station technology. With increased commodity prices comes additional expense on-site. Electrical efficiency demands require more and more energy-efficient pumps.

Smaller capacity mining pump sales (<500 gallon per minute flow rate) retain the highest sales worldwide. This trend is followed by medium and heavy duty pump sales. This trend has been identified as occurring to a greater degree in the Asia Pacific region. Mining pump sales are at an all-time high in this region due to advanced manufacturing and low product cost.
