Specialized for Gold, Ore, and Aluminium separation processes, this pump significantly reduces operational costs. With advanced cyclone technology, it optimizes separation in mining operations.
Unique Design for Tough Duties The millMAX™ pump stands out with its severe-duty design. Exclusively developed for grinding mill discharge and abrasive slurries, its patented design surpasses traditional pumps in efficiency and longevity.
Customized Solutions for Every Need FLSmidth Krebs understands diverse mining needs. The company offers wet end conversions and complete pump assemblies, tailored to meet specific operational requirements.
Patented Technology for Cost Efficiency The millMAX™ pump features a unique on-line wear clearance adjustment. This patented technology minimizes the cost per ton pumped, outperforming conventional hard metal and rubber-lined pumps.
Versatile Applications in the Mining Sector This pump excels in various challenging applications:
- Ideal for mill discharge, crusher slurry, sand, aggregate, and coarse solids.
- Perfect for handling abrasive slurries in copper, gold, lead-zinc, coal, and phosphate plants.
- Effective in fine solids handling, like iron ore and kaolin.
Operational Benefits: Power, Durability, and Efficiency The millMAX Slurry Pumps offer:
- Reduced power usage by 10% to 30%.
- Extended wear life, leading to less downtime.
- Lower cost-per-ton pumped.
- Improved cyclone separation.
Incorporating the FLSmidth Krebs millMAX Slurry Pump into your mining operations brings efficiency and cost-effectiveness. It’s a strategic choice for enhancing productivity in the mining sector.
The millMAX™ Pump has a unique proprietary design developed exclusively for mill discharge duties and adapted for other severe abrasive slurries.
The millMAX slurry pump family includes pumps specifically designed for High Pressure, High Head, Split Case, and Heavy Duty pumps that are commonly used in the Canadian Oil Sands (bitumen), Gold, Copper, Coal, Iron Ore, Industrial and Power Applications.
Key Components Design
Casing – designed for minimum slurry turbulence and even wear. Includes (14×12 and smaller) integral wear ring, carrier, and adjustment screws for on-line adjustment and elimination of suction side recirculation.
Wear Ring – adjustable wear ring assembly to permit closing of suction side impeller clearance during operation. This reduces slurry recirculation and lowers pressure at the suction area, thereby maintaining flow and reducing wear.
Impeller – designed for high slurry efficiency and hydraulic performance. Machined surface at the eye for wear ring adjustment and high expelling vanes.
Backliner – designed for close clearance at the back (14×12 and smaller), or SUCTION LINER with integral wear ring (16×14 and larger). Matching full impeller diameter and profile for close operating clearance.
Wear Parts – designed hydraulically to wear evenly. Constructed of high chrome at 680/720 Brinell hardness.
Power Frame – heavy duty cast iron pedestal with external bearing assembly adjustment mechanism. Drilled for overhead motor mounting assembly.
Flanges – loose intake and discharge flanges drilled to suit various pipe requirements.
Bearing Assembly – heavy-duty shaft and indirect fitted taper roller bearings rated at 100,000 hrs B-10 life minimum. Bearing arrangement designed to prevent over greasing and ingress of slurry.
High Radial Vanes
• Clears large solids
• Prevents solids from being crushed
• Reduces casing slurry pressure at the eye of the impeller
External Wear Adjustment Screw
• Four screws for on-line wear clearance adjustment
• Adjusted while the pump is operating
• Adjusted six to eight times during the life of the pump
Adjustable Wear Ring
• Wear ring takes up clearance at the impeller
• Adjusted during operation
• Reduces suction side re-circulation
• Maintains hydraulic performance
