Metso Outotec was created through the combination of Metso Minerals and Outotec on June 30, 2020. They are a frontrunner in sustainable technologies, end-to-end solutions, and services for the minerals processing, aggregates, and metals refining industries globally.
Metso Outotec offers a comprehensive product line of horizontal slurry pumps to serve a wide range of slurry transport applications. The total solution of pumps, parts, and services to tackle even the most abrasive applications and help you to reduce operating costs.
Horizontal Slurry Pumps Include:
- Metso MD Series Mill Discharge Pumps
- X Series Slurry Pumps
- Orion Series Slurry Pumps
- VASA HD Series Slurry Pumps
- Thomas Simplicity Series Dredge Pumps
Vertical slurry pumps are highly configurable pumping equipment designed to reduce maintenance and operating costs. They require less floor space than horizontal pumps, and wear parts are available in hard metal or rubber.
Vertical Slurry Pumps include:
Vertical froth pumps increase the efficiency of pumping frothy slurries. They are ideal for all applications involving the handling of air-entrained slurries. Used as a mixing and distribution unit, where the dry powder has to be mixed (and wetted) with water, vertical froth pumps can also be used with cement in ready-mixed concrete and grouting.
Metso Outotec range of vertical tank pumps is called Sala VT vertical tank pumps. They are available as either rubber-lined or hard metal-lined versions.
Vertical tank pumps are made for abrasive slurries. Known for robust construction and durability, vertical tank pumps are designed to be simple to maintain and easy to install.
- Vertical Induced Flow Pumps
High-level wet classification in mining is necessary for efficient size control of particles finer than 1 mm in water. There are different methods of wet classification, but when the particles size range is 100-10 microns, hydrocyclones are the optimal choice. MHC™ Series hydrocyclones provide maximum process performance and uptime during wet classification. These hydroclones have a smooth flow of material, coming from an innovative inlet head design. The Robust manifold design provides ease of maintenance and superior wear life—exceptional separation efficiency through a Patent-pending design bringing the next generation of hydrocyclone technology in wet classification. MHC Series Hydrocyclones offer a Diverse range of applications and broad product line offerings.
Slurry handling is vital in maximizing minerals processing plant’s productivity and efficiency. It plays a crucial role in mining processes involving water and other liquids. Reduce maintenance costs with one annual maintenance break instead of three, which means up to 67% spare-parts cost savings. These newer pumps require 75% less maintenance- meaning less water usage and saving over 6 billion liters of water. With a 7% increase in pump efficiency reduced energy consumption by 15%. Natural rubber-lined pipes have five times longer wear compared to typical polyethylene pipes saves you in service cost.
Slurry Handling equipment includes:
- Slurry Pumps
- Slurry Pipes
Slurry Knife Gate Valve
Metso Outotec Slurry Knife Gate Valves are used for isolation purposes in the mill circuit; they are also found in mining operations’ separation and refinery stages. Metso Outotec provides several types of valve solutions that can be tailor-made to the specific application.
