Robust pumps for mining
Safe and efficient operation in the mining industry requires highly reliable and durable equipment.
Minerals are the raw material used as the basis for many products used in our daily life. KSB’s line of GIW® pumps are used to move slurry, a mixture of mined material suspended in water, across long distances or within a processing plant.
What the mining industry expects of us
Few industries are as tough on pumps as mining. Challenges are manifold and complex: Aggressive slurries and ever-changing conditions and materials cause mining pumps to wear out quickly. Unexpected outages can halt the entire production process, resulting in incredibly high costs.
Therefore, mine operators need a partner who can supply them with specialised heavy-duty slurry pumps that will reduce downtime, lower the total cost of ownership, and increase efficiency.
KSB has been supplying GIW® pumps for hard rock mining and mineral mining for decades. Our extensive R&D makes us experts in hydraulic design, mechanical design, wear technology and materials technology – so we can provide you with the best and most reliable products.
