Water pumps on large mining water trucks can pump millions of litres per day., but they are often filled with water that contains a lot of rocks and other debris such as the stray bolt.
Debris can result in:
Excessive pump wear
Premature pump failure
Block spray head valves
Industry standard rock filters are difficult to inspect and service. If not regularly emptied, will restrict flow to the water pump causing cavitation, failure and machine downtime.
The ADE designed and manufactured rock screen filter includes a 3” valve so that it can be inspected and emptied from ground level.
The design makes regular inspections easy which improves the reliability of the water truck.
ADE incorporate a rock screen filter into every spray bar design.
