Warman Replacement Pumps
World Class Warman Replacement Pumps
The South African mining industry makes extensive use of Warman pumps for use in the pumping of slurry. The nature of the mining industry demands that replacement pumps be available at very short notice to ensure that any disruption caused by pump failure is kept to a minimum. Replacement Warman pumps are available from companies like Tribix in South Africa which has a dedicated team in place to ensure that the replacement pumps operate to original specification and can be installed extremely quickly to ensure a minimum of disruption to the normal mining operations.
Warman centrifugal slurry pumps and fully submersible dewatering pumps are essential to the proper functioning of mining operations. The ultra heavy duty replacement pumps manufactured by Warman must perform to original specifications and deviation from the normal operations of the pumps used for dewatering operations at mines will not only disrupt production but can place the lives of the miners who are working deep underground in jeopardy.
The extremely reliable Warman slurry pumps are used for the transport and pumping of highly abrasive materials that are the by product of mining operations. These materials can include the results of mill discharge, process plant material and the pumping of material that makes up tailings in the mine operation. Even these usually reliable Warman pumps can require replacement parts due to the nature of the material that is being pumped. These replacement parts can include impellers and volutes which are essential to the proper functioning of the pumps.
Warman pumps can also used for the pumping of abrasive slurry which is commonly found in sewage treatment plants across South Africa. The timeous replacement of Warman type slurry pumps is essential in order for the plant to remain functional.
In the past a lack of Warman replacement pumps and parts has led to the failure of sewage pumping stations which has caused the rapid spread of waterborne diseases such as cholera. Today much of the responsibility for the maintenance of these pumping stations has been handed over to private companies due to a lack of the skills required to perform regular maintenance tasks and fit replacement pumps on the part of municipalities and local authorities.
The availability of replacement Warman pumps has meant that mining and other industrial operations that require the ultra heavy duty slurry pumps can continue to provide both employment opportunities to many South African’s, as well as allowing industries such as agriculture (which uses Warman pumps for the pumping of farm waste such as manure) to contribute to the economy of the country and the continued growth of industrial operations.
It is a testament to the professionalism of companies that supply Warman replacement pumps to industries such as mining that these industries continue to be amongst South Africa’s most important generators of both foreign investment and foreign exchange. South Africa continues to be a world leader in the mining industry because of the efforts of those companies that supply replacement parts and service to the mining industry.
