DXB Pump & Power launch new medium head quarry pumpset for washplant feed and dewatering applications

DXB Pump and Power, the UK’s only privately owned British pump manufacturing company, has launched a brand new dewatering and washplant feed-pump for quarries and recycling plants expanding its range of pumps originally launched at Hillhead last year.

The new DE140/70 pumpset is a Stage 5 and electric motor driven pumpset designed and built in the company’s DXB3 canopy that is used in both 55kW and 105kW configuration and allows the company to offer a range of quarry pumps offering flows up to 850m3/h and heads to over 120m.

This latest design for medium pressures offers a maximum flow in excess of 180m3/hr at heads of almost 80m with a BEP at 140m3/hr at 70m operating at an economical 50kW of power and 14.5 litres of fuel with only 37kg of CO2 each hour.

The major benefits to the quarry of this pump is that where others use Ad-blue in the SCR exhaust systems to reduce their emissions, the DXB pump has only a DPF which is optimised to maintain the engine temperature and reduce the challenges faced by other larger engines in the market.

In addition to the Deutz engine with its 1000 hour service schedules, the pumpset comes complete with the revolutionary Fuel-ActiveTM system that reduces the chances of fuel contamination and costly callouts on site whilst maintaining uptime of the plants that often run at 150 tonnes per hour.

Simon Ruffles, Managing Director of DXB Pump and DXB Integrate, the hire company in the UK aggregates market, said 

Dave Rodgers, Director of UK Key Accounts, commented…

Many quarries operate their plant some distances away from the supply of their water requiring greater pressures to over the distance between this lagoon and the plant, but yet needs pressure for the nozzle bars and this pumpset is the smallest we manufacture for such applications

He continued “Being able to design the pumpset without Adblue for the exhaust systems is a big deal for smaller quarries that perhaps don’t have the larger equipment on site using Adblue for their units. Doing this performance with only a 55kW not only saves on servicing costs but also fuel which is critical to the smaller quarries in the UK.”

NOTE: DXB Pump & Power is an ISO9000/14000/45000 approved pump manufacturing business based in Suffolk. Its owners have operated in the UK quarry industry for over twenty years and have worked with all the major quarry companies in the market but especially the independents.

Their complete range of dewatering and process pumps include fresh water and slurry pumpsets in both engine and electric motor configuration and are capable of flows over 1000m3/hr and heads of over 240m while still passing solids over 75mm in size.
