JUMBO FACE PUMPS
– A Breakthrough in keeping the face Dewatered.
Jumbo Pumps is the new revolutionary solution to expensive submersible pump rebuilds in face dewatering. Featuring hard metal parts, auto prime and dry run mechanical seals, these pumps set a new standard in removing water from the face.
The pump has been engineered specifically for the underground mining industry, providing a real solution to pumping costs. Jumbo pumps feature an open impeller which allows the pump to pass shotcrete fibres and drilling fines.
The Jumbo Pump replaces the need for submersible pumps at the face. The pumps have been designed and proven at Australia’s largest underground mining operation and is rapidly gaining popularity.
