Mining is an uncompromising environment, demanding operational reliability, infrequent but simple maintenance and long term survivability – all properties of Verderflex pumps whether dosing reagents, transferring slurry or pumping underflows

Pumps for the mining industry

Verderflex peristaltic pumps are manufactured in the EU within ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 accredited facilities.

Heavy duty slurry pumps for the mine

In dosing galleries, the variable nature of the corrosive reagents causes diaphragm pumps to clog leading to increased chemical usage and lower plant efficiencies, whereas progressive cavity pumps suffer from burnt stators as they are allowed to run dry. This has lead to peristaltic pumps being specified in floatation cells, primary mineral and tailings retreatment plants and heap leaching installations worldwide.

The rubber hose is capable of pumping slurries containing:

  • Pyrite
  • Copper concentrate
  • Uranium
  • Nickel
  • Cobalt
  • Silver
  • Platinum
  • Chrome
  • Gold concentrate

Peristaltic hose pumps have many applications in the mine:

  • Slurry transfer
  • Thickener underflow recirculation
  • Reagent dosing
  • Froth flotation
  • Cyanide processing

The Verderflex VF125 is the world’s largest high pressure hose pump and can of pump high SG slurries at over 60m³/hour or 260 GPM. The Verderflex VF125 and VF100 are both ideal for the heaviest duty tasks such as circulating slurry and thickener underflow.
