Transcript of "Verderflex Peristaltic Hose Pumps - Mining Applications"

  1. 1. Verder Mining Applications PAUL NELSEN MANAGING DIRECTOR
  2. 2. Thickener Underflow • Peristaltic pumps handle high specific gravity associated with thickener underflow slurries, which centrifugal pumps cannot handle. • Improvement in thickener performance
  3. 3. Dosing Flocculant (SIBX) • Maintain particle size • Less chemical needed
  4. 4. First Quantum Minerals • Four VF125 hose pumps installed on two thickeners for underflow circulation Kansanshi Copper Mine, Zambia
  5. 5. Platinum Slurry
  6. 6. Dosing Systems in Lead Mining • CuSO4 , NaCN & Na2Cr2O7 at Lead Mines in the Andes
  7. 7. Mining Slurry •VF100s used to pump thickener underflow slurry •Slurry has 80% inorganic solid content •Other reasons for selection: – Abrasive nature of slurry – Low maintenance costs BHP Cannington, Australia
  8. 8. BHP Cannington, Australia • Lead Slurry being pumped by flow-paced VF125
  9. 9. BHP VF125 Thickener Installation
  10. 10. Cyanide Dosing in Gold Spoil Heap Leaching Recovery •Customer pumps Cyanides onto gold mining waste to recover 99.9% of “lost gold” •Key reasons for selecting Verderflex pumps – No seals, consistent dosing, chemical resistance and solid content of dosed chemicals
  11. 11. Mining Drill Unit •Verderflex VF50 replaced submersible pump due to high maintenance costs •Same customer bought three VF125s Drill Bit Dewatering & Cooling at Olympic Dam Mine, Australia •Additional benefits were safety (no metal to metal contact to create an explosion risk), insensitivity to debris in pumping lines, abrasion resistance, and suction lift
  12. 12. South Africa • Anglo American, South Africa • Anglo Gold Ashanti, South Africa • Anglo American Platinum, SA • Aquarius Platinum, South Africa • Foskor Mining, South Africa • Harmony Gold, South Africa • Impala Platinum, South Africa • Lonmin Platinum, South Africa • Phalaborwa Mining Corp, SA • Rustenburg Platinum Mines, SA • Xstrata, South Africa North America • Codelco, Chile • Vale Inco, Canada • Xstrata Falconbridge, Canada Africa • Botswana Copper, Botswana • FQML Kansanshi Copper Mine, Kansanshi, Zambia • Gold Star Bogoso Gold Mine, Ghana • Mopani Copper Mine, Mopani, Zambia • Sable Zinc, Zambia • Tati Nickel, Botswana Australia • BHP Billiton, Australia • Olympic Dam, Australia • Telfer Mine Verderflex Mining References
