THOMPSONS Kelly & Lewis (TKL) has released a new brochure and a new software program to simplify selection of its Titan slurry pumps.
The new technical data contains an easy to use selection guide covering pump discharge sizes from 25mm to a maximum of 300mm for large duties to allow operators and specifiers to choose the most efficient configuration for each application.
It is particularly important in the minerals industry to select the right materials for the wearinq parts of a pump dependent on the type of slurry to be processed.
The new data emphasises that those parts susceptible to wear are readily interchangeable so the most economical materials can be confirmed by trial and experience.
Choices may involve rubber elastomer and polyurethane for processing fine solids and corrosive slurries or hard metal for coarser solids and higher pressures and temperatures.
Ceramics also show excellent abrasion and corrosion resistance foi some applications.
Again, as the Titan Slurry brochure points out, selecting the right pump should involve ensuring the choice reflects the total ownership costs which go way beyond the initial capital investment.
Total ownership costs include energy, wear parts availability and price, ease of maintenance and repair downtime.
The Titan slurry brochure, and the software CD, is available from all TKL offices or through TKL's website at www.tkl.corn.au.
