Details

There are many types of mining pumps, and different mining pumps are suitable for different working purposes. Generally speaking, most mining pumps are used for mine drainage. Pumps move water, slurry or sludge from one area to another.

Common mining pump types include:

1.     Submersible pumps

Submersible pumps, sometimes called mine pumps, are often used in dewatering applications and, as the name suggests, they can be submerged in water. This ensures they are always on and the engine is cooled by water. 

2. Centrifugal pumps

Centrifugal pumps are very popular because they are affordable and durable. These pumps can be effectively used to pump any fluid provided the fluid has a low viscosity. 

3. Diaphragm pumps

Diaphragm pumps operate on air. Therefore, they can operate in areas without power.

4. Drain pumps

Drain pumps are used to drain liquid areas that may contain solids.

5. Sludge pump / mud pump

These pumps can be used for any non-abrasive sludge and sludge. 

6. Slurry pumps

Slurry pumps are best for removing water that contains abrasives such as sand, rocks or concrete.
