Slurry Pumping in the Phosphate Industry
With FIPR funding, we conducted pump and pipeline studies on a variety of phosphate industry slurries ranging from dilute waste clay through conventional tailings to high concentrate ore. The project uncovered methods for achieving significant energy savings for solids transport pumping and ways to reduce capital and maintenance costs.
This web course captures the major findings of the FIPR projects, builds on our industry and training experiences, and provides useful guidelines and tools for increasing pumping efficiency. Whether you are a mine manager or engineer, a pump designer or operator, or a maintenance technician, this web course will sharpen your skills, improve your technical competency, and help you increase your company’s bottom line. See below for a list of instructors.
