Get the right mining slurry pump with Xylem Whether you’re quarry dredging, cleaning a pump basin from settled solid, or sump pumping in a concrete recycling plant, mining slurry pumps are key to mining operations and mineral processing. Xylem slurry pumps, available for rent or purchase, deliver long life and low energy use, with a patented, self-cleaning design for easy maintenance and excellent performance.
Work with experts who understand slurry. Slurry is a mixture of solids and liquid – generally water. Non-settling slurry is a homogeneous mixture, while settling slurry can be described as pseudo-homogeneous, heterogeneous or partly stratified. Xylem is experienced in mining and slurry technology, providing solutions specifically for this application.
Start with the right design. Slurry pumps are heavy, robust centrifugal pumps designed to handle tough and abrasive duties. Xylem mining slurry pumps are built for mines and quarries, offering easy installation with a slim, compact design and featuring sizes from 4 hp - 330 hp.
Choose the right configuration. Three main types of pumps are used for slurry pumping: horizontal slurry pumps, vertical slurry pumps and submersible slurry pumps. Your Xylem team can help you determine the appropriate configuration for your mining application.
Save on mining slurry pump operation and maintenance. Our patented, self-cleaning slurry pumps set a high standard for clog-free operation and solids control. Advanced monitoring and controls enable pumps to adapt to operating conditions in real time, for sustained efficiency and reliability at lower, more predictable costs.
