Weir secures largest ever pump order


Weir Minerals Africa has received its largest ever pump order. The company will supply Kenmare Resources with 32 pumps for its Moma titanium minerals mine in northern Mozambique.

Mining at Moma involves using dredges which float in an artificial mining pond. The dredges pump the mineral sands that form the wall of the pond into a floating wet concentrator plant. A heavy mineral concentrate is produced, which is then pumped to a nearby minerals separation plant, where it is separated into final products for export.

The original processing plant was purchased in Australia by Kenmare and was fitted with Warman pumps. Weir also holds a service contract to maintain those pumps.

The plant is currently being expanded, and once complete production will be increased by more than 50%.
JP Joseph of Weir Minerals Africa, said: “The order for 32 pumps is part of the expansion project and includes five Warman 20/18 AH horizontal heavy-duty rubber lined slurry pumps with standard chrome impellers.  

“These are the biggest AH pumps in the range, designed for continuous pumping of highly abrasive and corrosive slurries and capable of handling more than 4,800 cubic metres of slurry per hour.”
