Pleuger Industries supplies Chile copper mine with process water pumps

Pleuger Industries supplied the Chilean Collahuasi Mine with six pump units for the filtration of copper concentrate. The 10-inch pumps are used to dewater copper sludge in the flotation process and extract the copper concentrate. Process pumps used in copper production operate under extreme conditions because copper quickly oxidizes the materials from which pumps are usually made. Pleuger Industries pumps rely on corrosion protection and energy efficient design to maintain in harsher environments.
