Dewatering is an important part of any open pit or underground mining operation. While it can be a complex and costly process, it is instrumental. If not planned for and managed properly, mine flooding or slope failures can cause major setbacks and threaten the safety of workers.
Just as mining’s harsh conditions test the grit of its workers, its demanding environments and corrosive elements test the grit of mining equipment. Mined minerals, whether coal or precious metals, are abrasive and maintain various degrees of viscosity that challenge the strength and durability of the toughest pumps.
Gardner Denver’s pumps are engineered to withstand the rigorous demands of mine dewatering. And with Gardner Denver’s 24/7 customer service, a Parts on Demand program and unmatched service and repair support, customers can rest assured they have a partner to help see them through the toughest mining jobs.
