The awards took place in Solihull, UK, on 22nd March.
The pump was chosen from among eight finalists as the "most innovative pump, pumping system or other pump related product introduced onto the market within the last 12 months".
The XHD pump is designed to allow mines and related operations to move heavy slurries with improved reliability. It can be maintained while running, and requires less downtime for service procedures with parts that are more accessible and adjustable than in other slurry pumps.
"The XHD pump's innovative features are generating great interest in the mining and minerals market because they were specially designed to maximize uptime – and therefore value – for our customers," claims Buddy Morris, global product manager for ITT Goulds Pumps.
