Metso Outotec slurry pumps to treat tails at SevGOK iron ore project

Engineering Dobersek in Germany and Severniy Mining and Processing (SevGOK) in Ukraine have chosen Metso Outotec’s mill discharge pumps for Severniy’s greenfield course of waste thickening plant, the OEM says.
Metso Outotec’s pumps will be used to pump the iron ore focus plant’s waste sludge into the settling ponds from the thickeners. Professional to be delivered by Metso Outotec include 10 massive high-capacity MDM700 pumps. Together, the pumps are capable of dealing with a total quantity of 117,500 cu.m/h of waste sludge.
