Tru-Flo Supplies Unique Trailer Pump To WA Mine

By superadmin on May 27, 2018 in Vac-Assist Pumps

Tru-Flo Pumps was asked to design a unique trailer mounted pump for their WA mining customer.

The customer needed a TF200/180 Vac-Assist C Series pumpset with an extra-large fuel tank that could be moved around their extensive mine site with ease and operate for lengthy periods unattended.This meant the standard trailer mounted pump would be redesigned to meet the clients specific needs.

Tru-Flo’s design team worked for the client to develop a unique dog-leg trailer which increased the flexibility of movement for the large Vac-Assist C Series pump with a 3000L fuel tank attached to the trailer itself. A spare wheel was included in case of unexpected tyre damage, safety rails, ladders and platforms for ease of access for operators.

The extra large 3000L fuel tank allows the customer to leave the pump unattended and monitor the performance from another part of the site. Freeing up pump operators to manage pumps in other areas of the mine.
