Vertical Drilling and Mining

FMC Technologies is the leader within the surface and underground coring, water well, geotechnical and environmental drilling markets with its Bean piston pumps. Bean pumps can be used in the following vertical drilling and mining applications: diamond core drilling, reverse circulation drilling, drilling dust suppression, longwall hydraulics, mine dewatering, mine dust suppression, and water transfer.

Bean pumps proven reliability makes it ideal for continuous duty applications, leading to increased drilling productivity and improving bottom line performance.

Proven Reliability

A lot of the other industry offerings have shorter life spans, causing increases in cost, and downtime. This is because the vertical drilling and mining industry require pumps that are capable of handing continuous duty applications. These offerings also have difficulties handling abrasive and stringy fluids.

Solution: The Bean pump is the most widely used pump in the industry because of its proven reliability, making it ideal for continuous duty applications. Bean pumps can be customized to include self-cleaning and erosion-resistant valves which enables the pumps to handle the most abrasive and stringy fluids.

Bottom Line Performance

The vertical drilling and mining industry is constantly looking for ways to reduce downtime and increase profitability. Majority of the current industry offerings have higher component cost, and are harder to service leading to increased downtime, and lower productivity.

Solution: The FMC Technologies Bean pumps have lower life cycle cost and total cost of ownership by incorporating longer lasting components that have increased wear characteristics. The design of our Bean pump's front piston cover provides quick access to allow for a decrease in service time.
