In the mining industry, Rotho peristaltic pumps are generally used to transfer acid and highly abrasive sludges and slurries.
They are ideal for pumping highly aggressive components with suspended solid parts at high temperatures as the absence of valves or seals eliminates the risk of blockage or clogging.
The Rotho peristaltic pump minimises maintenance and machine downtime in continuous processes involving 24/7 operation with sulphides and cyanides or when dosing corrosive reagents.
The ability of the Rotho to pump from a depth of -8.5 m solves material transfer problems impossible for other types of pump. It can also operate dry without product without the tube burning out or deteriorating.
