Selection and optimization of mine pumping systems

Jun 01, 1983 The paper describes various factors which affect the design of a pumping system for a mining layout. Variation of the make and quality of mine water with respect to mine layout and developments are important factors to be considered in the design of a pumping system. The main pumping duties which can be assigned to a mine dewatering system are specified in terms of

Energy cost optimisation of a complex mine pumping system

The purpose of this study was to do an energy cost optimisation on a specific complex mine pumping system by means of load shift. A Real-Time Energy Management System (REMS) was installed on the mine and the pumps were controlled according to certain constraints. The results that were obtained were very satisfactory.

Manual for the Design of Pipe Systems and Pumps

The first step on the way to the optimal pump is the selection between a centrifugal pump or a positive displacement pump. The difference lies on one hand in the prin-ciple of transpor-ting the liquid and on the other hand in the pumping characteristic. There are two types of centrifugal pumps: "non-self priming" and "selfpriming".

Powerful Mine Dewatering Pumps & Systems

Pumps & Systems, March 2013 Mining applications are as diverse as construction or water and wastewater applications. Each jobsite has specific requirements and needs. Underground and open pit mines have several layout and design obstacles. Regardless of the mine and its setup, water is a mine’s biggest enemy. Getting water out—and keeping it out—is the primary focus of any mine plan.
