Isomag Bearing Isolators in Slurry Pumps for the Mining Industry

December 20, 2016


Isomag bearing isolators solve contamination issues for slurry pump applications in mining industry.


Pot ash mining facilities in the U.S. were having bearing contamination issues on their Warman slurry pumps. The default labyrinth type isolators were allowing dirt and water to reach the bearing oil decreasing the MTBR of the pump. This lead to customer concerns about frequent rebuilds. The solution was to replace the default isolators with Isomag’s magnetic face seals. Isomags create a positive, liquid-tight seal,

eliminating ingress of slurry and water, and keeping the bearing lubrication pristine in these harsh environments.


Application summary:

Problem solved: Dirt/water contamination

Equipment mfg: WEIR

Equipment type: Warman Slurry Pump

Previous bearing protection: Labyrinth

Solution: Isomag MP V7-UL
