Introducing a large mill-discharge slurry pump

| By Gerald Ondrey

The MDM900 mill-discharge slurry pump (photo) is the latest addition to this company’s flagship Mill Discharge (MD) Pump Series. The MDM900 is designed for heavy-duty use in concentrator plants, where capacity and wear-resistance are essential. The MDM900 is an all-metal, thick-walled, extra heavy-duty pump designed for extremely arduous mill-duty applications. The advanced design of the MDM900 enables minimized slurry velocities in the pumps, thus reducing the rate of wear significantly. This translates to increased uptime and productivity, says the company. The pump delivers flowrates up to 13,500 m³/h (60,000 gal/min) with heads up to 40 m (132 ft). Its impeller has a diameter of 2,100 mm (83 in.) and an inlet size of 900 mm (36 in.) — Metso Outotec Corp., Helsinki, Finland
