Sulzer’s solutions for mining

Whether on the surface or underground, the conditions in mines are harsh. Besides the mud, slurry, stones, and rocks, there are large volumes of water to be removed in order to keep the production going. Sulzer pumps and other process equipment operate reliably in demanding mining applications, where durability and performance are key factors.

Long experience and detailed knowledge of metals and mining applications with different raw materials make Sulzer a reliable equipment supplier for the mining industry. Our understanding of the application, the corrosive and abrasive characteristics of the fluid, and the flow demands – combined with our leading material technology – ensure an optimal solution for each mine.

Reliability is crucial in the tough environments of mining and mineral processing. Due to erosion and corrosion, pump efficiency and reliability are continuously challenged. Sulzer is well aware of what these harsh conditions require and develops equipment engineered to a high standard. Our experience and product knowhow provide sustainable and reliable solutions, utilizing the most appropriate product and material that will sustain the changing environment in mining.

We offer a comprehensive portfolio of innovative pumps and agitators for mining applications, from lightweight and robust submersible dewatering pumps to wear-resistant high-lift centrifugal pumps for the removal of sludge, mud, silt and water in abrasive and corrosive environments. With thousands of installations around the world, Sulzer products and services have stood the test of time.

The robust design of our multistage pumps for high-pressure applications combined with high performance makes the pumps reliable, while significantly reducing the total cost of ownership. Another example is the optimized design of our wear-resistant end-suction pumps that ensures maximum corrosion and abrasion resistance ─ and extended lifetime of the pumps.

The latest addition to our product range is the submersible dewatering pump XJ 900, designed for high-lift and high-volume applications. Its high wear resistance ensures years of cost-efficient pumping. The flexible design makes it easy to convert the pump for different hydraulic requirements.

In mine dewatering applications where submersible dewatering pumps are needed, handling damage can be reduced by selecting the right types of pumps. The electronic intelligence of Sulzer’s submersible dewatering pumps can put an end to capacity problems at the start-up by correcting for improper phase order. Built-in intelligence incorporates control and monitoring functions into the pump’s power line. It warns if a primary seal is showing signs of failing, which allows the customer to plan the pump change in time – before the leakage makes its way to the starter and causes a much more expensive repair.

As a long-term service partner, we work with you to understand your challenges and to tailor the optimal solution for you. Our combination of in-depth technical expertise and first-class engineering facilities provides you with a single access point for all services you may need. We go beyond the ability to deliver – we offer the full breadth and depth of service that you require.
