Peristaltic (hose) pumps offer mining operations a transfer technology that can handle a wide range of applications with varying levels of viscosity, corrosiveness and abrasiveness.
Mouvex® is a leading manufacturer of innovative positive displacement rotary vane, peristaltic (hose) and eccentric disc pump technology for the transfer of fluids and solid-laden slurries in mining applications worldwide. By utilizing a global network of distributors and original equipment manufacturers, Mouvex has become a truly global corporation with operations across five continents.
Peristaltic hose pumps to eliminate leaks and product contamination
First introduced in 1995, Mouvex’s Abaque series peristaltic (hose) pumps feature a seal-free design that eliminates leaks and product contamination, enabling them to handle the mining industry’s toughest pumping applications.
The Abaque series is ideal for handling anything from abrasive and aggressive fluids to sheer-sensitive and viscous materials. The Mouvex Abaque can run in forward or reverse and is self-priming, simple to use and easy to maintain. It offers suction-lift capabilities to 25.5ft (9m), as well as the ability to continuously run dry without adversely affecting the pump’s performance. Ductile-iron and steel construction lets the pump produce discharge pressures as high as 232 psi (16 bar).
Safe and effective pumps for the mining sector
The Abaque’s pumping action is achieved through the compression of a circular loop of elastomeric hose by two diametrically opposed shoes. This rotational motion forces the fluid in the hose to move ahead of each shoe. When each shoe reaches the end of the loop, the reinforced hose immediately returns to its original shape, ensuring suction and priming. The pump’s housing is partially filled with lubricant, aiding the smooth running of the shoes on the hose. The inside of the hose and the hose inserts are the only pieces of equipment that come in contact with the pumped fluids, allowing aggressive and contaminated fluids to be pumped safely and efficiently.
The pump’s hoses are available in three different materials:
- Natural rubber – highly resilient with excellent abrasion resistance and strength, making it ideal for use with diluted acids and alcohols
- Buna-N – highly wear resistant to oily products
- EPDM – high chemical resistance, especially when handling concentrated acids, alcohols and ketones
Abaque pumps are available in ten different sizes, with flow rates ranging from 0.07 gpm to 339 gpm (0.26 Ipm to 1,283 lpm) and a choice of close-coupled or bare-shaft design. Optional equipment includes leak detectors, vacuum kits and non-metallic (PPH and PVDF) inserts.
