BBA Pumps introduces a new line of diesel driven bolt-on pump packages, to cater to the mining market (Fig.) niche where there is no need for a complete skid and/or canopy, the company has developed a sub-frame assembly. These units feature the BA or BA-C pump of the customers choice coupled to a diesel engine, including the control panel, and mounted on a high quality, galvanised sub-frame. The frames can be customised with lifting bales, protection bars etc. should these be required.
These auto prime pumps have a capacity of 100 m3/hour to a maximum of 1750 m3/hour and a head of up to a maximum of 250 mwc (25 bar). The units can be bolted onto any object or structure, they offer true bolt-on pumping power. End-users only need to connect a fuel tank and the unit is operational. Using high efficiency pumps and state-of-the-art diesel engines, the units offer maximum performance at minimal cost, fully in-sync with BBA Pumps’ philosophy of “Lowest cost of ownership”. Duplex stainless steel design enables the pumps to handle advanced dewatering jobs in environments where pH levels are unpredictable and varying – from very acidic to very alkaline. Furthermore Duplex also allows the pumps to be used in more abrasive applications as it will not “pit” like regular stainless steel. Duplex Stainless Steel is much more resistant to corrosion and much stronger.
