APS Augsburg – pump specialists

Recycling water is needed to cool the residual slag. The mud-laden water must be pumped by high-pressure drainage pumps through a sprinkler system over the still-hot slag. The sprinkler system requires a pressure of about 3 to 4 bar.
Using Tsurumi LHW-series high-pressure drainage pumps, large amounts of water can be pumped onto the dump. The recycled water is used again and again. The Tsurumi high-pressure pumps used provide a pressure of 8–12 bar at a motor rating of 11–22 kW.
