Verderflex Slurry Pump for Mining

Heavy duty slurry pumps for the mine

Verderflex peristaltic pumps are the first choice for mines around the world, offering unrivalled performance in a tough and uncompromising environment.

Abrasive mining slurries have sub-micron solid contents in excess of 80% with slurry SGs in excess of 2.0. Only hose pumps can pump such dense fluids whilst maintaining high levels of plant availability unlike centrifugal pumps which suffer from continuous downtime and are unable to pump such high SG slurries, lower plant performance

Additionally, reversible hose pumps can be used ...

Retirement of Barry Jones

It’s been over 30 years of owning and operating a business, when all of a sudden for the first time ever I was approached by an employee saying, “Garry I’ve decided to retire” HUH.

Pumping polymer with a double diaphragm pump

Many polymers naturally occurring, such as silk, cellulose, natural rubber and proteins. In addition, a large number of polymers have been synthesized in the laboratory, leading to such commercially important products as plastics, synthetic fibres and synthetic rubber. Polymerization, the chemical process of forming polymers from their component monomers, is often a complex process that may be initiated or sustained by heat, pressure, or the presence of one or more catalysts.

There are organic and synthetic polymers. Examples of organic polymers ...

Crop Irrigation and Wastewater

Use of Wastewater for Crop Irrigation

New research in the United Arab Emirates is examining how treated wastewater can help the country make best use of its limited water resources.

Dr. Farrukh Ahmad and colleagues at the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology in Abu Dhabi are investigating the use of wastewater for irrigating edible crops — something that would reduce the need for desalinated water and help the country meet growing demands for water and food, while also reducing its energy consumption and carbon emissions.

“Agriculture accounts ...

Storage tanks containing dangerous chemicals require multiple levels of instrumentation, controllers and software that can monitor the contents of a vessel and provide an alarm in the event of a leak or overfill event.

Leak Monitoring and Control for Chemical Tanks

Recent events in the state of West Virginia have shown that our water supply is in jeopardy of contamination from leaks or overfills of storage and processing tanks (see Fig. 1) at chemical, petroleum, water/wastewater, and similar facilities.

In January 2014, the city of Charleston was affected when a tank containing 4-methylcyclohexane methanol leaked, causing contamination of the Elk River, which provides over 300,000 people with drinking water. Residents were without tap water for at least five days. But it may ...
