“The XHD pump’s innovative features are generating great interest in the mining and minerals market because they were specially designed to maximize uptime—and therefore value—for our customers,” said Buddy Morris, global product manager, ITT Goulds Pumps.

Announced last November, the XHD pump is designed to allow mines and related operations to move heavy slurries with improved reliability at lower operating cost. It can be maintained even while running, and requires less downtime for service procedures with parts that are more accessible and adjustable than in other slurry pumps, according to ITT Goulds.
