SANDPIPER AODD Pumps: The Premium Choice for the Mining Market

A High-Risk Industry Needs Innovative, Efficient Partners

Mining remains an inherently risky industry even with the utilization of technology to enable the mining operation to safely and cost-effectively bring metals and minerals from mine to market. To make mining safer and more efficient, each step of the process must be well planned, from worker attire (PPE) to the equipment used in the mining operations. One of the most time-tested, trusted and relied-on pieces of equipment in a mine is a pump.

Portable and Rugged Pumps for the Mining Market

The air-operated, double-diaphragm (AODD) pump is a critical tool in a mining operation, and SANDPIPER has given particular attention to its pump design to increase survivability even beyond intended handling when tossed, dragged and crammed into position to rapidly remove fluids or dewater areas. SANDPIPER AODD pumps offer the following:

  • Safety & Portability: User-friendly ATEX design offers lightweight construction, built in handles and is configured to be wall-mounted in compliance with safety regulations.
