DOVE™ Slurry/Gravel Pumps are designed to deliver the highest value in terms of Quality & Efficiency, as well as lowest Total Ownership Cost to our clients. DOVE™ Slurry/Gravel Pumps are produced in two configurations of In-Line (Horizontal) Slurry/Gravel Pumps and Submersible(Vertical) Slurry/Gravel Pumps.
Economics of Slurry / Gravel Pumps
Most often, these types of pump are the most appropriate for all types of hydraulic sluicing mining operations. The intended purpose of using Gravel Pump is to eliminate the necessity of trucking ore to the treatment plant. By applying slurry/Gravel pumps in the mining operation instead of trucks, overall ore transportation costs are reduced by a considerable amount. Rates of production throughout are increased by a continuous flow of ore to the treatment plant at all times. No downtime loss due to trucks breaking down or insufficient trucks being unable to keep up with the mining ore removal.
Submersible (Vertical) Slurry / Gravel Pumps
Five models to choose, from 100 m3 /hour to 554 m3 /hour. Configured as a highly efficient, shaft driven, direct drive vertical (Submersible) slurry/Gravel pump, which can be used as a semi-submersible pump to a depth of 1.2 - 1.6 meters (depending on the model). Primarily used in hydraulic sluicing, as the most efficient means of slurry ore transport from the hydraulic sluicing mining area to the wash plant site. Used whenever trucking the ore is inapplicable or not feasible.
The other usage is for removing and transporting slurried ore from a temporary tailings dam at the treatment plant site, away to a permanent disposal dam site.
Highly efficient tool for breaking and disintegration of heavy clay, configured either after Trommel or Grizzly Separator and prior to the concentration of minerals contain in heavy & sticky clay ore.
These models are mounted on robust enclosed skid frames for protection and foot suspending below a tri-frame if required. The pump can then be suspended above the pump medium i.e. waste treated ore, for convenient positioning.
