ITT produces a wide range of pumps for the mining and mineral processing industry, as well as integrated service solutions such as preventive monitoring, contract maintenance, emergency field service, engineered upgrades, inventory management, and equipment overhauls.
Mine and mineral processing plants worldwide use the company’s process-proven Fabri-Valve® abrasion-resistant knife gate and slurry valves, Dia-Flo® diaphragm valves, and Cam-Line® plastic-lined ball valves.
Slurry transfer solutions for mining sites
PRO Services® Goulds manufactures innovative solutions, designed to reduce pump total cost of ownership.
These include severe duty hard metal pumps and rubber-lined SRL-XT pumps for aggressive mill discharge and cyclone feed applications, SRL-C and SRL-S pumps for flotation concentrate and tailings, and rubber-lined vertical cantilever pumps for transferring slurries from floor sumps / pits.
The Goulds Model XHD incorporates the latest technology, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis to provide next-generation severe-duty slurry pumping.
Designed as a result of extensive customer feedback, the XHF incorporates high-efficiency and extended wear life, alongside optimal reliability and simplified maintenance.
Fuel transfer vane pumps
ITT Australia is the exclusive distributor of Ebsray Vane Pumps in Western Australia, and can also supply a wide range of other brands to meet the client’s duty requirements.
Vane pumps are used when transferring hydrocarbons and have low net positive suction head requirements (NPSHr), making them suitable for fuel unloading applications.
Pumps are available in cast or ductile iron, aluminium and stainless-steel.
ITT PRO Services can be deployed as customised standalone or integrated solutions, which include equipment monitoring, and control products and services.
Designed to improve system reliability and up-time, ITT on-site experts work with maintenance and operations teams to identify and resolve issues through:
- Root cause failure analysis
- Energy performance audits and enhancements
- Maintenance, operator and management training
ITT engineering delivers performance improvements through hydraulic, mechanical and material modifications to achieve effective return on investment (ROI).

Variable frequency drive systems
PumpSmart® variable frequency drive (VFD) systems monitor or control multiple pumps while operating in parallel or series piping plans, as well as facilitating multi-pump operation for medium-voltage systems.
Available in low and medium-voltage configurations, the solution evenly balances process pumps during minimum and maximum loads, while keeping the pump close to optimal efficiency.
ITT’s engineering and application knowledge allows PumpSmart to automatically perform the following:
- Alternate pump work based on run / operating hours
- Eliminate control valves
- Fault back up for each pump
- Integrate into plant distributed control system (DCS) for operations
- Maximise efficiency / energy of each pump
- Protection for each pump and auto changeover
- Stage (on) and de-stage (off) during various load conditions
