CASE STUDIES

Testing pressure pumps used for kaolin mining

Carrying out accurate pump performance measurements to complement innovative and reliable refurbishment work.

Presented convincing data

Enabling reliable prediction of next economic repair

Supported refurbishments

Proving pumps can be kept in service indefinitely or until the duty changes

Found efficiency gains

Improving hydraulic efficiency from 63% to 82% (pump 4)

More about these pressure pump tests

Working alongside GT Jones for a UK kaolin mining company, we were asked us to complete pre and post refurbishment tests to assess the success of their work and to be able to report findings back to their client, the UK’s largest kaolin and white mineral mining company.

The work, at one of the client’s most significant sites, involved using our FREEFLOW system to test the quarry’s four pressure pumps (duty: 120m @ 818m3/hr; 355kW). The work also removes the notion of obsolescence for pumps of this type.
