PUMPS: Tsurumi to focus on durability at MINExpo

LAS VEGAS – Tsurumi Pump will display the durability of its pumps at MINExpo International 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada, from Sept, 26 to 28. Glenn Wieczorek, managing director of the company, said that MINExpo will provide the perfect opportunity to highlight the reliability of Tsurumi pumps, especially when job site planning must happen quickly.

Tsurumi’s booth will place special focus on its new, stainless steel LH-series of submersible dewatering pumps, which are manufactured using SAE 316 stainless steel (also known as marine grade stainless). The casting of these pumps enables them to handle the heavily acidic runoff from mining applications that can quickly degrade equipment, often in a matter of days.

Tsurumi pumps are designed to be some of the most durable on the market. Each and every component of a Tsurumi pump is scrutinized and tested – that way, when the pump is assembled, its resilience reflects the sum of its parts. Most of the company’s pumps feature high chrome, abrasion resistant construction, for example.

The LH-series has discharge sizes that range from 750 to 800 cm, and it offers horsepower outputs that range from 10 to 110 kW. All parts within the pump that are exposed to fluids, from the impeller to the casing, will withstand exposure to wastewater that contains abrasive substances.

A number of other pumps that are ideal for handling the rigors of mining will also be on display, including: the GPN-series of agitator pumps; the GSD-series of submersible slurry pumps; the GSZ-series of submersible, high head dewatering pumps; and the KRS-series of submersible dewatering pumps.

Glenn Wieczorek, Tsurumi Pump managing director, said. “We welcome the opportunity to hear about the challenges that miners face firsthand on the job site – this information will help us improve the design of Tsurumi pumps moving forward.”
