Customer challenges

Moving ores, concentrates and residues is an essential part of any mining, mineral processing or refinery process. When working in demanding process conditions it is the big picture of process reliability that matters the most. Therefore it is important to take into consideration the equipment you are choosing to do the job.

The initial price of any conventional valve or a pump is only the starting point and that the majority of costs are generated afterwards by maintenance, downtime and spares. Problems can quickly escalate especially in locations that are harder to reach.

Our solution

Flowrox heavy duty valves and pumps are designed to deliver value throughout their lifetime. This means providing low total cost of ownership meaning heavy duty structure, long lifetime together with long service intervals, easy serviceability and low spare part need. An investment in heavy duty equipment soon pays for itself by generating savings in terms of all these combined.

We have nearly 40 years of experience with demanding process applications found in mining after thousands of installations often in distant locations.

Hard to handle? We are up to the challenge!
