In 2014, this column focused on improving the operation of piping systems by performing pumped system assessments.
A Southwest mining company, as part of its expansion plans, invited bids for a complete tailings reclaim water system.
Q. What specifications are required for series and parallel pump operations?
A global problem affecting millions of people, flooding causes more than $25 billion of damage per year.
The early stages of mine development—including identifying the lodes and extracting the earth that surrounds them—are rugged operations that require equipment that can withstand long, hard days of
This column is about the most common mistakes pump end users make daily. It is also about how to avoid these mistakes and how to fix them. I learned these lessons the hard way.
This summer, a team of subject matter experts from a company that provides intelligent industry solutions visited one of the largest mining sites in the world.
North Africa is an emerging market with several supply demands—not the least of which is power.
Unexpected maintenance or repairs can represent a major expense to end users. The costs of parts, labor and production downtime compound to create serious problems for any facility.
In recent years, pump professionals—including engineers, operators and plant managers—have come to assume that variable speed drive is synonymous with variable frequency drive (VFD).
Increased efficiency means more money saved on energy. When competitive bids are evaluated, efficiency is an important factor, especially for high-energy pumps.
Knowing a fluid’s viscosity is essential to properly sizing piping and pumps. The viscosity of all fluids changes with temperature—the higher the temperature, the lower the viscosity.
In 2010, a rare-mineral exploration, development and production company opened an in-situ recovery (ISR) mine in South Texas. This was the first new ISR mine in the U.S. in five years.
