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.
