New wash plant pumpsets from DXB Pump & Power

MH-range pumpset

DXB launch range of high-efficiency medium head pumps for quarrying and recycling markets

DXB Pump & Power Ltd, the newest pumpset manufacturers in the UK, are introducing their brand new mh-range of high-efficiency pumpsets to the UK quarrying and recycling markets, offering flow rates of more than 700 cubic metres per hour and pressures beyond 9 bar or 90m.

Designed for used in conjunction with IEC 3 high-efficiency motors, DXB say the wire-to-water total efficiency is close to 90% in certain units, making them the leaders in terms of energy cost savings.

Simon Ruffles, owner and managing director of DXB Pump & Power, commented: ‘Without the overheads of a large organization, we have been able to offer the UK market a high-efficiency pump solution at a very competitive price, something that has been missing for a long time – the customer can reduce the capex and the opex costs of their operation.’

According to Mr Ruffles, DXB’s range of medium-pressure or sub-10-bar pumpsets is the largest range of dry prime wash plant pumps currently available in the UK, ensuring that customers always have the lowest cost of pumping regardless of mineral type or the output per hour of the quarry itself.

He continued: ‘No other manufacturer clearly focuses on the best efficiency point of operation for their pumps, so a quarry may end up with a larger pump and motor combination operating at only 65% efficiency, which means that over a year the operators end up spending thousands of pounds extra on electricity when they don’t have to.’

The ‘mh-range’ is one of six complete pumpset line-ups offered by DXB Pump & Power focusing on reducing environmental impact, costs of ownership and downtime at quarries and mines. The company says it offers the most comprehensive range of quarry pumps available in the UK, including slurry pumps capable of flows of more than 3,000 cubic metres per hour and pressures beyond 20 bar.
