  • Year: 2019

Project Description

A HY85/160 pump equipped with hydraulic excavators and a jet ring system is now operating in a mine located in Argentina. Gold and silver are extracted from the quartz mineral. This is a particular mining site, since the processing of the material takes place directly in situ, in an underground production unit.

The problem

The need was to maintain the capacity of the reservoirs located inside the plant. The customer needed a system that would allow the material to be removed quickly using the equipment already available on site.

The solution

We have proposed a HY85/160 hydraulic pump to be attached to a crawler excavator, which could move between the various settling basins.
The pump was equipped with two hydraulic excavators and a jet ring system that allows to break even particularly compact material.
With this configuration the pump can start working even with a limited amount of water.

As often happens, our service has provided training to mine employees, in order to instruct them on the correct use and regular maintenance of the pump.
