Technosub started 34 years ago in the pump industry and is now well established in the Canadian mining market as the dewatering specialist. Today, with over 150 employees, they’ve become the gold standard in water management. Unlike many others in similar fields, they’ve succeeded in becoming a fine tuned organization where selling pumps is only one component of their daily activity. Technosub has managed to combine a master distributorship with a manufacturing facility which is supported by their own engineered solutions department to face the most challenging jobs anywhere in a diverse climate driven country.
MUDWIZARD® REVOLUTIONIZES THE MANAGEMENT OF GROUNDWATER SLUDGE
A MINE DOESN’T NEED TO ADAPT TO MUDWIZARD, MUDWIZARD ADAPTS TO IT. - Mr. Patrick Martel, P. Eng., V.P. Technosub
One exceptional challenge common to many companies in the mining world is managing mud. Where there is water, there is mud. The solid particles found in mud vary in size, weight, with very abrasive characteristics. This is the root cause of many pump failures, and a burden to high pressure pumps as well as a huge dilemma in sump management. Technosub made it their goal to find a solution that would reduce maintenance downtime and improve the underground conditions. Over the years, the final creation was an efficient mud treatment system, entirely operated by miners: The MUDWIZARD®. This revolutionary system is unique, simple, patented and provides remarkable results. It uses a compact concentrated system which allows the collection of solid particles. The MUDWIZARD® system is installed underground, providing an immediate solution at the source. Solids found in the water are separated underground therefore, the pumps have less deterioration due to abrasion. As a results, pumps require less energy and the hydraulic wear is greatly diminished, increasing the pumps’ lifespan and reducing maintenance costs.
