Reducing Operating Costs with Warman MCU Pump at Oceana Gold
OceanaGold was looking to improve the wear life of their exisitng rubber lined pumps.
After a thorough review of the exisiting pumps and operational data, the Weir Minerals team selected the alloy lined Warman® MCU™ 250 pump for the application.
A throatbush with pre-swirl vanes was included in the MCU™ 250 pump to reduce the leading edge wear on the impeller and increase wear life.
The Warman® MCU™ 250 pump lasted 5,000 hours in operation, more than 200% longer than either of the incumbent pumps.
