Water trucks are commonly used in mining applications, primarily for dust control. These water trucks usually consist of a series of spray nozzles equipped with the mechanics to pump and spray water to remove overburden or to hydrate mines when they become dry.
These trucks are capable of carrying a large volume of water and refilling them can be challenging at mines, due to their sizes.
All Pumps was approached by an iron ore mine to provide solution for a complete pumpset for their water truck fill point. This customised pumpset needs to pump 100 litres per second of water to an 8.5 metres standpipe.
We customised and supplied a diesel driven transfer pumpset, complete with remote starters for the truck drivers, hoses, valve sets, and flow meters. The pumpset will pump water out of a tank farm into water trucks.
