Abel delievers Pumps to South America

ABEL expands its South America business and focusses on its original core competence Mining. Just before Christmas holidays in 2014 two big cone valve solid handling pumps of the SH series left the headquarters. The destination is a gold and silver mine in the heart of Peru on 4800 meter above sea level. The pumps will be used for the backfilling of tailings. In this procedure fine crushed tailings get mixed to a paste with water and a binder, then this paste gets backfilled in mine cavities by power of ABEL SH pumps. This technique facilitates tailings disposal, stabilizes the mine and has a lot more advantages. The capacity per pump is 95 m3/h paste against a pressure of up to 100 bar. Commissioning of the pumps was July 2015. Furthermore ABEL also dispatched two large membrane pumps of the HMQ series in December 2014. The destination is also South America, more particularly it is a gold and silver mine in Chile. In this case the pumps will be used for tailing transfer.
