A Sykes XH150 high head diesel driven pump recently removed 103 million litres of water from an open pit in northern Botswana in just 30 days to enable exploratory drilling to take place. Engineered for reliable performance with low fuel consumption, the pump is able to work in dewatering applications for extended periods of time.
An innovative solution was provided by Integrated Pump Rental for the dredging of an Eswatini sugar producer’s sewerage facilities. A SlurrySucker Mini mobile dredging unit was deployed to empty the pond.
The tried-and-tested Sykes XH150 dewatering pump from Integrated Pump Rental once again came to the rescue of a Northern Cape mine following heavy rains in the region. The mine, which already had one of these units in operation, signed a long-term contract for a second unit – replacing a competitor’s product on site.
Integrated Pump Rental’s innovative SlurrySucker desilting barge is successfully cleaning a large process dam for a coal mine in Mpumalanga, after past attempts by numerous contractors had failed. The application of the SlurrySucker meets the safety priorities of the mine while cost effectively removing the slurry.
A SlurrySucker dredging unit, locally manufactured by Integrated Pump Rental, will ensure optimal operation of Tronox’s dams at the heavy mineral miner’s operation on the West Coast of South Africa.
Ensuring sufficient water storage capacity in mines’ process ponds is crucial for the optimal functioning of mineral treatment plants, and this means regular desilting must be conducted. Integrated Pump Rental plays a valuable role in desilting process ponds with its locally manufactured SlurrySucker system.
Sykes pumps have earned their formidable reputation for fast and effective control and removal of everything from clean water to slimes, sewage, sludge and liquids laden with solids.
