Metso Outotec slurry pumps to treat tails at SevGOK iron ore venture

Engineering Dobersek in Germany and Severniy Mining and Processing (SevGOK) in Ukraine have selected Metso Outotec’s mill discharge pumps for Severniy’s greenfield course of waste thickening plant, the OEM says.
Metso Outotec’s pumps might 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 embody 10 massive high-capacity MDM700 pumps. Together, the pumps are capable of handling a complete volume of 117,500 cu.m/h of waste sludge.

The MDM pumps operate in very demanding situations, and we’ve designed them to function reliably and to withstand exceptional wear.”
Metso Outotec mill discharge pumps have been designed for mill circuit applications, similar to SAG/ball mill discharge pumps and hydrocyclone feed. Controversial has been placed on elements which have to withstand distinctive wear from coarse heavy solids and move turbulence, the corporate says.
