The Track Pump unit is designed to have the main frame / power pack situated approx. 40 metres from the highwall toe edge, with the wet-end driven in towards the highwall and into the water accumulation on the pit floor.
The advantages of this pump format over conventional pit type pumps are:
- Quick mobilization and demobilization with minimum labour requirements
- The pump delivery hose is positioned in place with the wet-end
- Eliminates the need for Pump Crew to work in the pit near the Highwall toe, out of exclusion zones
- Capacity up to 100L/sec @ 100M Head
