Weir launches dewatering website covers underground and open-pit mining and quarrying as well as extraction of water from lakes, rivers, ponds and the sea for use in wet processes. “Dewatering is a challenge that almost all quarrying and mining operations have in common, but with so many different applications and a wide range of products to match, it is not always easy to tell which pump is right for the job,” said Brunella Steffanelli, regional marketing manager at Weir Minerals. The website offers a choice of centrifugal, positive-displacement or turbine-driven and whether submersible, pontoon or shore-mounted. It also focuses on specific models and sizes.
