Tsurumi at MINExpo 2021
Tsurumi will be displaying several of its product lines suited for handling the rigors of mining.

Tsurumi Pump is highlighting the robust engineering of its pump lines at MINExpo International 2021 in Las Vegas, from Sept. 13 – 15. The manufacturer will occupy booth number 1413 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

As manufacturers wrestle with supply chain disruptions and shipping delays, Tsurumi has worked to ensure timely availability of its products, in particular larger, high-head dewatering pumps widely used in the mining sector. A number of pumps suited for handling the rigors of mining will be on display at MINExpo this year, including:

  • LH Series Submersible High-Pressure Pumps
  • GPN Series Submersible Agitator Pumps
  • GSZ Series Submersible, High-Head Dewatering Pumps
  • KRS Series Submersible Dewatering Pumps

Tsurumi’s booth will also feature stainless steel and titanium pumps, which are manufactured to withstand heavily acidic runoff that can quickly degrade equipment, an issue that is commonly encountered in mining applications.

From the impeller to the wet ends, the materials provide increased wear resistance, making them suitable for abrasive applications such as construction site drainage, commercial/industrial mine dewatering or effluent transfer.

“Pumps in mines are often expected to move high volumes of water that is laden with pyrite, iron, sand and other gritty solids.” said Glenn Wieczorek, managing director of Tsurumi Pump in North America. “The continuous duty motors, high chromium impellers and adjustable wear rings found in Tsurumi pumps make them preferable in situations like these.”

MINExpo is the world’s largest mining tradeshow gathering more than 1,100 exhibitors and dozens of thousands of attendees.
