Mining and Mineral Processing

Rugged Sundyne pumps for environmentally safe mining and processing.

Heavy duty pumps to handle tough mining operations dependably and efficiently

Engineers and business managers in the mining industry extract metals, rare earth minerals, coal, shale, potash and other useful materials for manufacturing products or for energy use. Sundyne provides dependable, reliable, corrosive resistant and efficient pumps for dewatering, dust suppression, leaching and brine injection for miners who utilize long wall, traditional pier-and-beam, pit and strip-mining applications.

Leaching

Mining and mineral processing engineers who handle aqueous solutions, dissolving agents, and corrosive and erosive slurries find ANSIMAG sealless magnetic drive pumps to be a safe and cost effective way to manage harsh chemicals and acids found in solvent extraction. Sealless magnetic drive plastic lined process pumps provide the design flexibility required for each service.

Dust Suppression

By controlling dust, miners can better meet environmental, regulatory and community requirements and reduce product losses. Sundyne provides a range of pumps for miners and mine operators to tackle their dust emission challenges while minimizing water usage and application frequency.

Dewatering

Mine operators manage the water where it is known to exist and they must quickly alleviate problems  when water  rises unexpectedly. Mine dewatering pumps generally pump water horizontally – from a smaller sump to a larger sump – or vertically, from the bottom of the pit up to the elevation of the mine, and then horizontally to a discharge point. Sundyne manufactures centrifugal pumps for mine and mineral processing operators including multi-stage horizontal, single stage vertical and horizontal and vertical sump pumps that are reliable, tough and efficient for dewatering.

Disposal Injection

Disposal wells are used by mine operators to inject the slimes left over from copper and other valuable mineral processing into wells for safe storage and disposal. HMD provides large sealless magnetic drive centrifugal pumps for safely injecting these liquids and resolved minerals into massive storage tanks.
