The MDM900 is for use where capacity and wear-resistance are important and is an all-metal, thick-walled, extra heavy-duty pump designed specifically for extremely arduous mill duty applications.

The MDM900 mill discharge slurry pump features flows up to 13,500 m³/h (60,000 gpm) and heads up to 40 m (132 ft). It has a FR2100 frame, and impeller diameter of 2100 mm (83 inches) and an inlet size of 900 mm (36 inches)

Metso Outotec MD Series pumps have been designed for efficient operation and long wear life to match the mill’s uptime. The pumps come in two tailored solutions, MDM and MDR. The MDM (Mill Discharge Metal) pumps are available in size ranges of 250-900, and the MDR (Mill Discharge Rubber) models come in size ranges of 250-700. Both pump types are suited for heavy-duty use in concentrator plants offering excellent resistance to abrasion and erosion.

Diwakar Aduri, product manager for MD Pumps at Metso Outotec, said: “Slurry handling is vital in maximising a minerals processing plant’s productivity and efficiency. The advanced design of the MDM900 enables minimised slurry velocities in the pumps, thus reducing the rate of wear significantly.”
