Pump and Abrasion Australia choose the Aimex mining show in Sydney to introduce the new CURVE® range of slurry pumps, the latest technology in the pump industry, to the New South Wales mining community.
This year the Aimex exhibition has a strong focus on innovation, making it the perfect setting to introduce the revolutionary CURVE® range.
“Pump and Abrasion Technologies took the exciting and bold step to design and manufacture a new range of slurry pumps, tailored specifically for the needs of the market. From a clean sheet, we applied the latest technology and came up with a revolutionary range of slurry pumps, called the CURVE® range.
The range provides customers with major improvements in Total Ownership Cost (TOC), improved efficiency, lower power consumption throughout the lifecycle, overall safety, parts wear life and maintenance requirements,” says Gerhard van Vuuren, Business manager Australia.
This fresh approach to slurry pumping had an immediate and positive impact on the South African and African mining industry. With a global vision, logically the next step after the successes in SA was to enter the Australian market and expand the CURVE® footprint. After an in depth analysis of the Australian market, Western Australia was chosen as the starting point for the Australian operations.
In April 2017 the company was registered and a highly specialized team was assembled to develop and grow the Australian business. A great addition to the team is Ian Moulsdale, an industry veteran with more than 20-years experience in slurry pump technology. ” in 22 years I have not seen this big a step-up in pumping technology and design, it was an easy decision to become part of this great product. Without a doubt the best company, best people and best product I have worked with in a very long time”, Ian Moulsdale, Sales manager.
During the first four months, Pump and Abrasion Australia has managed to install CURVE® pumps for two Western Australian customers on their processing sites. The results have been tremendous with customers reducing their TOC by up to 59%. Additional benefits to the customers include 100% reduction on gland seal water requirement due to superior dry gland seal arrangement, ease of maintenance on pumps, longer service life compared to conventional slurry pumps and improved safety during maintenance.
Pump and Abrasion Australia are focused on a future where they continue to support customers needs through the Curve range of slurry pumps, making their customer's operations more cost efficient, whilst improving the safety of employees.
