Larox Pumps and Valves for Demanding Slurry Duties

Release date 05/12/2011

Larox Flowsys has provided solution for high-wear and aggressive processes already in more than 30 000 installations in mining and minerals applications around the world. Larox valves and pumps have proven their reliability among others in flotation, thickening, filtration, tailings, and additional systems such as sampling, dosing and water treatment applications.

Larox high performance pinch valves have a completely sealed stem assembly which prevents slurry or particulate to penetrate into the screw mechanism from both inside the valve and from the external environment. This ensures that when you go to open or close the valve it is as easy as the very first time it was operated.  Larox’s patented valve designs utilize a unique rubber technology for their sleeves that is extremely abrasion resistant and therefore lasts longer than competitive designs.

Larox peristaltic pumps are energy efficient as they operate through an exceptional operating principle, which makes them use considerably less energy than comparable pumping technologies. In addition to energy efficiency, Larox peristaltic pumps have long lasting hoses and low waste generation making them a perfect match for companies striving after low life-cycle costs.

New Larox knife gate valves
are ideal for applications that involve abrasive or corrosive slurries, powders or coarse substances. One of the benefits is that the metal parts of the valve are not in contact with the slurry when open, only the easily replaceable rubber sleeves or secondary seals touch the medium. The double seated design provides bidirectional flow and tight shut off.

New Larox progressive cavity pumps are designed for the most demanding abrasive, corrosive and other industrial pumping applications. Due to pump's unique features and patented design, high efficiency and high pressure are achieved in a shorter construction. It requires less energy and maintenance and it is easy to install.  It offers longer service intervals and better pumping reliability at an expanded temperature range, resulting in very low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
