AS the mining industry in Southern Africa continues to grow, there is an increasing need for pumps and valves that are bigger, more energy-efficient and sustainable.

KSB Pumps and Valves, a leading manufacturer of pumps and valves, has been at the forefront of this movement, designing and manufacturing pumps that are specifically built to meet the needs of the mining industry. With a focus on sustainability, KSB is leading the charge when it comes to providing equipment that can handle a variety of mining conditions, is easy to maintain, and can provide a long wear life.

“In addition to our focus on sustainability, KSB also dedicates time and energy to minimizing downtime on our mining pumps which is achieved through a range of measures, including the use of high-quality materials and manufacturing processes, as well as extensive testing and quality control procedures,” said KSB Pumps and Valves, area manager for mining in Southern Africa, Rob Bond. This in turn ensures that KSB pumps are built to last, with minimal need for maintenance or repairs.
