Pump & Flow specialise in analysing mineral slurries and paste, and are fully equipped with an in-house lab to perform all the rheology testwork necessary to characterise these types of materials.If you are designing a slurry system, or extending a tailings line or pastefill system, we can assist with the following investigations:

  • Antifoam tests
  • Bingham yield stress
  • Consolidation
  • Density (slurry, particle, settled)
  • Flocculant screening
  • Mineralogical analysis (XRD and XRF)
  • Particle size distribution
  • Particle shape factor
  • Permeability
  • pH
  • Plasticity (Atterberg limits)
  • Segregation behavior
  • Settling tests
  • Specific surface area
  • Thixotropic analysis
  • Total dissolved solids
  • Total suspended solids
  • Turbidity
  • Viscosity curves for varying concentration
  • Yield stress curves for varying concentration

Pump & Flow is a trusted lab partner because we:

  • Use high quality equipment, calibrated regularly
  • Check the distribution of measured results against similar references from our database
  • Comply with strict repeatability requirements and explore outliers
  • Compare outcomes using multiple methods, where they may be available
  • Understand the applicability and limits of each test method and instrument
