A unique pumping project was implemented at the Sunshine Mine, where a 75 hp submersible pump needed to be suspended in a shaft, 3000 feet below the surface.
After researching Boreline Hose applications, we chose their product to suspend a total of 9,000 lbs of weight on 5 inch Boreline, 600 feet below water to pump a shaft.
The engineering staff at Hose Solutions worked closely with us on the hose and fitting specification, which gave us the assurance that this application was a sure fit for us.
The installation of the pump, hose, electrical cable and suspension took only one shift and we were pumping the same day and continue to do so.
There was no concerns of pump reaction on start up, or need to anchor the pump, in the open space of a shaft.
Just carefully assemble, suspend, turn on and start pumping.
I would recommend any mining operation faced with challenging pumping situations to consider Boreline as a solution for pumping.

I started using Boreline in the year 2000 because the water in this area is very corrosive and I was changing out steel column pipe every three years.

This replacing the corroded pipe was putting a big strain on our budgets and also the cost of pulling and setting the pump. Now if we ever have a problem with the pump or motor we are capable of pulling and setting the pump and motor ourselves.

I would recommend Boreline to anyone. Believe me, you will save thousands of dollars in maintenance every year.

We operate several water districts in the area with wells ranging in depths of 150’ to 400’. We absolutely love this product and we use it in every well. Boreline has given us the ability to remove and reinstall a submersible pump, in-house, in a matter of about 6 hours. The Cobb Area Water District completely stands behind the Boreline and fully recommends it to anyone considering a better solution. The durability of this product is absolutely amazing and Hose Solutions Inc. has been there for us every step of the way.
