26.11.2013 / Weir Minerals wins ArcelorMittal order

ArcelorMittal has signed a £ 2.4 million deal with Weir Minerals to supply additional tailings pumps for its mine at Krivoy Rog, Ukraine. The pumps will be used to transport tailings - fine particles of iron ore too small for processing – to be deposited. Weir Minerals will supply two different sizes of the heavy duty, high-capacity slurry pump, the Warman® UY-GHPP (3-metre-diameter 28/24) and the Warman® HGY-AHP (2.84-metre-diameter 20/18), within the order. The pumps will work alongside 11 Weir Minerals pumps already in use at the mine.


Tony G. Locke, managing director of Weir Minerals Europe, said: “Transporting tailings is often the most energy-intensive slurry-based mining process because of the highly viscous nature of the material, so specifying the right unit for the job will deliver a significant cut in running costs.”
