Engineering Dobersek in Germany and Severniy Mining and Processing (SevGOK) in Ukraine have chosen Metso Outotec’s mill discharge pumps for Severniy’s greenfield course of waste thickening plant, the OEM says.
Metso Outotec’s pumps will be used to pump the iron ore concentrate plant’s waste sludge into the settling ponds from the thickeners. The 22 pumps to be delivered by Metso Outotec include 10 massive high-capacity MDM700 pumps. Together, the pumps are capable of handling a total quantity of 117,500 cu.m/h of waste sludge.
“SevGOK’s complex is the second of its sort in Ukraine, and Engineering Dobersek in Germany has designed it,” Axel Stappen, Managing Director, Engineering Dobersek GmbH, says. “With this funding, SevGOK goals to decrease environmental impacts and costs by reducing energy consumption and water usage. ขนาดpressuregauge selected Metso Outotec pumps due to their reliability and effectivity, and the nice help Metso Outotec has provided of their previous tasks.”
Michael Nienhaus, Head of Sales, Slurry Pumps, Germany, Metso Outotec, says: “We are delighted to have been selected to produce our MD sequence pumps to SevGOK’s challenge. To give an concept of the dimensions of an MDM700 pump, it might possibly weigh as much as 31 t and be 2.8 m in diameter, and have an impressive pumping volume of as much as 9,650 cu.m/h. The MDM pumps function in very demanding situations, and we’ve designed them to function reliably and to withstand exceptional put on.”
Metso Outotec mill discharge pumps have been designed for mill circuit purposes, corresponding to SAG/ball mill discharge pumps and hydrocyclone feed. Special emphasis has been placed on elements that have to resist exceptional wear from coarse heavy solids and move turbulence, the company says.
