Process Water and Dewatering

KSB delivers high-performance mine drainage and process water solutions that improve your bottom line.

Mining water pumps need to conserve precious water while standing up to tough slurries. Heavy-duty pumps and services from KSB help you tackle the challenges of mine dewatering and process water applications without sacrificing on performance.

Dewatering and process water applications demand durable, efficient pumps.

Water is essential to mining activities, which require efficient technologies for handling this precious resource. Parallel to the supply, recovery and treatment of process water, the need for mine drainage poses another critical challenge. If groundwater is not regularly removed, a mine will become flooded – which makes efficient dewatering systems a crucial aspect of mine maintenance. Both process water and dewatering applications can contain abrasive and corrosive materials, so products designed to tackle these challenges must be rugged and reliable. Whether an application contains mild slurries or coarse abrasives such as sand and gravel, it is important to find the right mining water pumps and systems for your specific requirements. Well-matched systems help maximize the longevity and efficiency of your applications while optimizing cost-performance ratios.

KSB offers expert-designed pumps for harsh slurries.
