The abrasive and corrosive fluids typically used in mining operations challenge conventional pumps. Diaphragm, centrifugal or other types of pumps where the product comes in contact with the working parts of the pump faces the problem due to high solids content and strong acidity. In the past, mine operators have had to purchase special pumps constructed from acid-resistant materials or put up with frequent, costly pump maintenance or replacement.
Enertech's Periflow Peristaltic Pumps can be successfully replaced out other pump types because of their significant advantages for handling these difficult and abrasive fluids. The entire family of heavy duty pumps are self priming, can run dry safely, and can meter accurately to ±0.5%.
