the asia miner • volume 15 • issue 4 44 SUPPLIER NEWS Since its founding in 1924 in Japan, Tsurumi Manufacturing Co. has driven the industry as one of the leading companies in sub- mersible pumps. Following the introducƟon of its overseas strategy in the 1960s, Tsurumi's reputaƟon as a leader in pump technology first gained tracƟon in the Asian market in the 1970s, then in the Unit- ed States and Europe in the 1980s. Today, Tsurumi is one of the world's leading pump technology providers, being acƟve in many countries and regions. Whether the need is for compact, single phase pumps or heavy duty three-phase pumps with high volume or high head capabiliƟes, Tsurumi has a wide range of submersible pumps de- signed for tough mining and industrial applicaƟons. Tsurumi's range designed specifically for the mining industry includes pumps whose components, that come into contact with fluids, are made from Grade 316 stainless steel. This includes the impeller, casing, motor frame, outer cover, strainer stand and flange. This is parƟcularly important due to polluƟon issues expe- rienced in many countries that were caused in recent years by runoff and discharge from mines and quarries. More than 40 per cent of the discharge from mining opera- Ɵons is highly acidic with a pH value less than four (4), requiring more operators to seek out drainage pumps able to treat this wastewater. Tsurumi pumps are specifically designed to handle chemical fluids of low pH value, such as corrosive acidic fluid. They are capable of processing drainage containing abrasive materials, making them durably designed and built to withstand severe en- vironments that cause aluminium and cast-iron pumps to break down in a short period of Ɵme. Tsurumi stainless steel pumps are applicable not only to mine and quarry operaƟons, but also to a wide range of fields such as sewage and wastewater treatment. Tsurumi's seawater-resistant pumps, which employ unique technologies, add an extra dimension to any operaƟons. For more informaƟon, contact Tsurumi. Tsurumi's pump technology sƟll trusted across the globe
