Industry First - High Flow Shearer Water Pump gets tested in our pump test facility

14th January 2020

We have successfully tested a Kamat K25095 Shearer Water Pump capable of 1148L/min @ 80 bar. The extremely high flow at this pressure made it a difficult test setup, but was able to be executed due to our new boost pump upgrade installation capable of 1600L/min @ 18bar. As well as the current test facility being driven by a VFD controller, the new boost pump upgrade has also been installed with a VFD allowing us to control what flow and pressure is required.

This pump was part of the complete Pump Station overhaul being completed in Mackay for our valued local customer Anglo American (Grosvenor).

This is another great addition to our workshop capabilities, and ensures our commitment to the highest quality and reliability for all of our customers.
