The importance of effective fluid management in mines

Fluid management in mines encompasses a wide range of activities, including the handling, storage, and disposal of various fluids used in mining processes. These fluids include water for processing and dust suppression, lubricants for machinery, and chemicals used in extraction processes. Key benefits of a good fluid management system include:

  • Operational Efficiency: Proper fluid management ensures that machinery operates smoothly, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
  • Environmental Compliance: By managing fluids responsibly, mines can prevent contamination and adhere to environmental regulations.
  • Water Conservation: Efficient use of water is critical in mining, especially in water-scarce regions.
  • Worker Safety: Proper handling of fluids reduces the risk of accidents and exposure to hazardous substances.

Fluid handling system solutions and equipment

Fluid management systems encompass a wide range of processes and equipment designed to handle, transfer, and manage various fluids such as lubricants, hydraulic fluids, and other mining-specific fluids. Balcrank, a notable provider in this field, offers several robust fluid dispensing and pumping solutions tailored for the mining industry, including pumps, reels, handles, tanks, fluid monitoring and fluid inventory control systems.

Air Operated Double Diaphragm (AODD) Pumps

SAMOA pneumatic air operated double diaphragm pumps (AODDP)

AODD pumps present a multitude of advantages. Their versatility allows for the seamless handling of a wide spectrum of fluids, ranging from thin and viscous liquids to abrasive or shear-sensitive materials. What sets AODD pumps apart is their ability to handle solids and suspended particles without causing damage, making them suitable for challenging applications where other pump types might struggle. Moreover, these pumps offer self-priming capabilities, enabling efficient operation even when the fluid source is situated below the pump level. Their tolerance for dry running further enhances their reliability, ensuring continued operation without damage in unintended dry-running situations. AODD pumps’ straightforward and low-maintenance design, characterized by fewer moving parts and easy installation, translates to reduced downtime and operational costs. Additionally, their intrinsic leak-free operation and ability to contain hazardous fluids make them a safe choice for handling volatile or dangerous substances, ensuring both operational safety and efficiency across various industrial processes.

Where to buy industrial AODD pumps

SAMOA Pivot Universal Pumps (UP) are Air-Operated Double-Diaphragm (AODD) positive displacement pumps. They have two pumping sections, with each side featuring a liquid and air chamber that are divided by a diaphragm. The diaphragms are connected to a shaft, and during one pumping stroke, fluid is suctioned into one liquid chamber while simultaneously the fluid in the opposite liquid chamber is discharged. The new SAMOA Pivot UP introduces a unique frictionless Pivot-Shaft Air Valve to provide maximum performance and energy efficiency, which exceeds market expectations.


Finding the right mining pump is not a simple “add to basket purchase”, so Carroll Technologies supports its customers to find the right product, whether it involves a simple application or a fully customized pump network. In addition to innovative industrial diaphragm pumps, Carroll Technologies can service your entire operation with a range of valves, pumps, mixers and tanks, as well as pump parts, instrumentation and complete designed pumping systems.
