PUMP manufacturer Goodwin Submersible Pumps Africa has made significant advances in the mining and dewatering industries since its inaugural opening in South Africa some four years ago. The growth experienced by the company has been spearheaded by the flagship 100ANZE® slurry submersible pump.
Goodwin also offer the larger 150ANZE® and 200ANZE®mm submersible pumps as well as the HNZB configuration for higher head applications, featuring all of the state-of-the-art benefits that set the Goodwin submersible slurry pumps apart from all its budding competitors.
Goodwin submersible slurry pumps are made with abrasive resistant materials and feature over deigned electrical motors making them capable of pumping high density and abrasive slurries. The heavy-duty pumps are equipped with a patented external inducer that breaks down and re-suspends settled or compacted solids.
Goodwin submersible slurry pumps are built with twin volute casing technology, fitted with a forced convection-cooled, oil-filled motor, a non-pressurized mechanical seal, over-sized bearings and a heavy-duty cable. It is capable of operating at temperatures of up to 90˚C and can even run dry for extended periods.
Typical applications include mine tailings, sump pump applications, power plant ash, hydro mining, or river and dam silt pumping.
Additional product developments like the Dirty Water High Head (DWHH) dewatering pump, has introduced a highly capable dewatering option to the range. The DWHH pump is designed to handle dirty water with a maximum 10% solid content and an SG of 1.1 kg/ℓ. Along with all the other features and benefits of the Goodwin range of pumps, this pump can deliver up to 215 m³/h of water to a maximum discharge head of 130 m.
Typical applications for the Goodwin DWHH pump include high wall pumping in open pit mines, pumping during dam and harbor wall construction, pumping from shaft bottoms, flood level control and pumping over extended distances of up to 4 km.
