Mineral Processing, Electrowining, Electrorefining, Solvent Extraction & Leach Processes


Constructed from a range of more than 25 certified, wrought billet materials — from carbon steels to high nickel alloys, titanium and zirconium — PSIL has supplied pumps vertical and horizontal pumps for these applications in Africa and the UK.


Using form milled-from-solid components, PSIL’s pumps have a dense, homogenous structure many times stronger than those constructed from castings.


Non-hydraulic end components including bearing houses and baseplates are available in 304L and 316L Stainless Steel, to mitigate the corrosive effects of H2S04-laden atmospheres in some processes.


PSIL’s pumps have been deployed in tank houses, solvent extraction, leach processes and electrolyte handling.


Clients include Anglo-American, Charter Consolidated, Selection Trust, BP Minerals, ZES, ZCCM, Davy Powergas NFM Division, Delta Metals and Southwire Corporation in locations such as Zambia, Botswana, Chile, the USA and UK


Units are available in vertical or horizontal configuration, manufactured to our minimum-standard 25-year design life — significantly reducing maintenance requirements and spares expenditure.
