Engineering Dobersek in Germany and Severniy Mining and Processing (SevGOK) in Ukraine have selected Metso Outotec’s mill discharge pumps for Severniy’s greenfield process waste thickening plant.
Metso Outotec’s reliable high-capacity pumps will be used to pump the iron ore concentrate plant`s waste sludge into the settling ponds from the thickeners. The 22 pumps to be delivered by Metso Outotec include ten large high-capacity MDM700 pumps. Together, the pumps are capable of handling a total volume of 117,500 m3 of waste sludge per hour.
Metso Outotec mill discharge pumps have been designed for mill circuit applications, such as SAG/ball mill discharge pumps and hydrocyclone feed. Special emphasis has been placed on components that have to withstand exceptional wear from coarse heavy solids and flow turbulence. The extensive range of Metso Outotec pumps covers flows of up to 12,000 m3/h, with the inlet sizes ranging from 250 mm to 800 mm with either a metal or rubber lining.
