Rivers, Lakes, Tailings Ponds

GIW® Minerals slurry pumps deliver superior reliability for dredging tailings ponds, lakes and rivers.

Rivers, lakes and tailings ponds require regular sediment removal, which takes a toll on dredge equipment. Rugged GIW® Minerals pumps keep your operations running for the long haul.

Long-wearing dredge pumps are required for the maintenance of tailings ponds, rivers and lakes

Dredging is vital to the navigability of rivers and lakes, and the operation of tailings storage facilities in mining. Dredge pumps are also used to harvest sand and gravel used in construction and various other applications. Dredging equipment used in these variable settings face several challenges. Dredge pumps need to be powerful enough to extract high concentration slurries from depths of 10-15 m. Since they are called on to handle abrasives such as sand, silt or gravel, along with muck and debris, the wear life of these pumps is limited. Durable and efficient dredging pump solutions help reduce both scheduled and unscheduled downtimes, lower operating costs and improve overall productivity.

GIW’s robust tailings ponds slurry pumps handle high-concentration slurries with ease.
