Downtime and power consumption reduced

Erdemir Group, steelmanufacturer in Turkey, wanted to improve reliability and process efficiency of the iron ore pelletizing unit and selected Metso MD slurry pumps to do the job. With the help of the innovative Metso MDR 300 pump, Turkey’s only iron ore pelletizing facility is able to maximize its production. This is why it is intended to acquire another pump. The double adjust feature makes the Metso MDR 300 pump easy to use and sustain its high efficiency. Since installation, Erdemir’s engineers estimate that the power consumption associated with this severe pump service has decreased 5 - 10 % compared with the previous pump supplied by another company. The Mill Discharge hard metal (MDM) and Mill Discharge rubber-lined (MDR) slurry pumps are the newest products to Metso’s complete range of heavy duty slurry pumps. Specifically designed for mill circuit applications, the Metso MD series offer consistent operation between mill shutdowns. The MD series consists of the latest high-performance materials that resist abrasion, corrosion and erosion, consistent hydraulic design that limits inlet velocity at best efficiency point, and a modular design that provides flexibility and optimization for continuous pump performance. Metso mill discharge slurry pumps ensure long-lasting and reliable performance.
