Weir Minerals Unveils New High-Lift Dewatering Pump
Weir Minerals are specialists in delivering and supporting slurry equipment solutions. The company recently launched the latest edition in its range of Warman centrifugal pumps to the European market. Warman pumps are specifically designed for dewatering applications.
“The dewatering system is a crucial part of almost every mining operation around the globe, and we’re committed to ensuring that our range of dewatering pumps is broad enough to deliver optimum efficiency, whatever the requirements,” says Steve Sedgwick, product manager for mine dewatering at Weir Minerals Europe.
The Warman pump is ideal for applications in both open and underground mines, offering increased efficiency where water needs to be lifted over greater heights; it maintains efficient performance to a maximum head of 140 m. The design features a new, double-volute casing that reduces radial load and is capable of maintaining internal pressures up to 7,000 kPa. This allows the pump to be configured in series to deliver even greater head heights.
Weir offers the Warman pump in four different sizes, with outlet diameters of 75 mm, 125 mm, 150 mm and 200 mm. Additionally, 50% of the parts used in the new design are compatible with the popular Weir slurry pump, Warman WBH, which saves customers time, money, and space in spare parts ordering and holding.
