New large pump for mining

GIW Industries, Inc., a subsidiary of the KSB Group, specialised in the production of mining pumps, has launched a heavy-duty pump referred to as MDX-850 on the market.
The specialists from Grovetown in Georgia, USA, have developed this kind series particularly for the acute circumstances encountered in onerous rock mining in mill circuits. The new MDX-850 raises the bar of the production level while maintaining the overall working prices, i.e. the entire price of ownership, down. The impeller diameter measures 2,600 mm (102″), exceeding that of the beforehand largest MDX pump by 250 mm (10″).
Accredited of MDX-850 embody numerous enhancements which were made to the MDX kind sequence over the previous couple of years. The pump width, for example, has been enlarged to permit for improved diverter design. The impeller, too, has been bolstered in areas vulnerable to put on. Thicker impeller vanes, cast from Gasite 28G and Endurasite, improve wear resistance and lengthen the life cycle of the pumps. MDX-850 is characterised by its enhanced interface between suction liner and suction plate, enabling the utilization of an innovatively designed wear ring on the pump inlet.
Like all MDX pumps, size 850 comes with an adjustable suction liner to allow changes of the clearance between the impeller nose and suction liner from the suction aspect of the pump even when the pump is operating. The MDX-850 design is compatible with the GIW RAMSL (Remotely Adjusted Mechanical Suction Liner) expertise improve that makes adjustment of the clearance between the impeller nose and suction liner fast and exact.
