In Germany quarrying for trap rock got difficult when explosives got involved. At the quarry dynamite was used to remove trap rock from the surrounding grounds. During this process the vaulable trap rock falls into the middle of the axcavation pit which is filled with water. In order to recover the product, the groundwater containing sand and crushed rock needed to be lowered.
A stone quarry in Germany faced the task of relocating water, essential to its operations, from an intermediate sump to the ultimate discharge point. Overcoming approximately 400 meters, the quarry employed a Tsurumi KRS 65.5 booster pump, delivering an effective solution to the customer's needs. Tsurumi's cutting-edge design enables their pumps to excel even when not submerged, enhancing their versatility and enabling uninterrupted operation in challenging applications.
In a quarry in Germany the operator was mining for basalt using dynamite to extract the basalt from the surrounding grounds. This method in terms of mining is very efficient as you can harvest big amounts of basalt quickly. The challenge of this application is the groundwater inside of the excavation pit which needs to be removed constantly in order to collect the material. However, the groundwater contains plenty of abrasive substances resulting from the dynamite explosions including sharp, crushed rock.
