Lowara Pumps help support a unique nickel extraction project

Thakadu Nickel Purification Plant

South Africa

When the Thakadu Nickel Purification Plant needed solutions for chemical and water pumps, Xylem and its family of Lowara Pumps stepped up.

Mining operations create a considerable amount of crude waste streams from their extraction operations. If purified, those streams can yield valuable minerals. Built to take advantage of the opportunity, the Thakadu Nickel Purification Plant produces 2,500 tons per month of high-purity, battery-grade nickel sulphate from a crude nickel sulphate stream.
