The abrasiveness of the slurry or the suspended solids will affect the choice of construction materials used for the pump’s wear parts. Most mining and construction applications will demand that the pump is made of durable materials such as cast iron or Hard-iron™.

Firstly, consider the pumping information. What is the flow requirement – measured in litres per second or cubic metres per hour? What is the static head – or the vertical elevation change – in metres? It is critical that the pump’s kilowatt rating and impeller type are suited to the flow rate and the total dynamic […]
