Mining, Metals & Aggregates

Submersible pumps are crucial to the mining and metals industry. They perform tasks that maintain operations to avoid downtime and to keep the miners safe. As such, mining, metals and aggregates companies need pumps that are durable enough to handle large, abrasive solids without clogging or failing. This includes rock slurries that many pumps are unable to handle. Our pumps can stand up to these applications from dewatering pumps to keep your mines dry or prevent flooding to heavy duty slurry pumps that can handle chunks of rock, coal, dirt and more.

Read the case studies below for how we’ve helped our customers deal with the mining and aggregates issues you deal with every day.

Sand Fine Reclamation Becomes Cost Effective With BJM Submersible Agitator Pumps

The Company

Based in North Dakota, Industrial Equipment Sales & Service (IESS) has been providing high-quality pumps, parts, and services to the oil and gas industry since 1999. IESS was contacted in 2014 by a sand and gravel wash plant that was trying to find a more economical way to recover the sand fines that they had previously been lost in the process of cleaning aggregate. Sand fines, which are essentially granular sedimentary particulate, are typically required for the mixing of a high-grade concrete commonly used in oilfield applications.
