SMS Slurry Dewatering System


The SMS Slurry Management System is a fully automatic slurry dewatering system that can take both solids laden slurry or fines laden water from several sources simultaneously, dewater and deliver a dry product back into the production system. The SMS can dewater around 30,000 liters per hour returning approximately 40 m3+ of material back to belt, skip or even bag per 24hr. The SMS units were designed as stand-alone operations capable of transforming what was previously a troublesome but unavoidable side effect of mining, slurry, into saleable product exiting the pit. The benefits of employing a SMS increase greatly due to the amount of sediment removed from pump lines. This in turn significantly reduces wear and tear on a mines normal centrifugal pumps. Compact, robust and simple in design, manufactured in 304 s/steel for durability, each unit has the capacity in throughput to operate 24/7 and be totally cost negative.
