The SV500 High Volume Mining pump is primarily designed to transfer up to 60m3/hour @SG1.0(264USGPM) of semi viscous muds and slimes. The unit operates via a twin tank system which allows one tank to fill whilst the other discharges giving virtually constant operation.

The SV500 High Volume Mining Slimes pump is completely air powered and operated which renders the unit intrinsically safe with a zone 1 approval rating. Both load and fill cycles can be adjusted via pneumatic timers to maximise product throughput.
