Title: Flygt Tandem Pump System Removes Water from Irish Zinc Mine

ITT Flygt Ireland has worked with mining company, Galmoy Mines Limited, to solve a problem involving the pumping of water from the bottom of its Galmoy Zinc Mine at a rate of between 40 and 100 liters per second over a distance of 300 meters. Galmoy Mines installed Flygt’s Tandem Pump System, which involved 1 No dual pump station. This incorporates 2 x BS2250 HT / 54Kw pumps with control panels complete with variable speed drives and controlled via an ultrasonic level controller. Flygt installed at 100 meter distances two more BS2250HT / 54Kw pumps in tandem, also with control panels with variable speed drives.
