Drives and PLCs for pumps

Accurate flow control

We understand that output in mining industry varies in compounds, density, volume flow rates, and pressure levels. Due to these varying operating conditions your pumps may not be operated at best efficiency area.

Pumping slurry is one of the most demanding applications for a pump. The operating speed of your centrifugal slurry pump is one of the most important factors which determines the life of the pump. With a VSD the pump speed can be adjusted to match fluctuations in system parameters such as flow rate, static head and settling velocity.When pump is stopped, the solids may settle. This means that your pump may need a high starting torque.

Our low and medium voltage AC drives provide accurate speed control of motor driven applications, enabling that the best efficiency point can be reached. In addition, variable frequency drives eliminate the need for valves to control the flow. This brings substantial savings in the energy consumption.

Our offering for mining pump applications includes low voltage and medium voltage AC drives, DC drives, motors, PLCs and HMIs.

Highlights

  • Accurate speed control of the pump motor
  • Substantial energy savings
  • Direct Torque Control (DTC)
  • Reduce mechanical stress with soft start and stop
  • Avoid mechanical resonances
