Harsco Metals & Minerals provide logistics and resource recovery services for the steel industry, operating at more than 160 customer locations across 30 countries.

A recent visit to their Scunthorpe site by Atlantic Pumps’ Sales Manager, Nathan Rowles revealed that their existing slurry pump was not only difficult to maintain but they were being overcharged for slurry pump parts and being quoted longer than acceptable lead times.

It was decided that the client would be best served by a 3x2 Silver Series horizontal, centrifugal slurry pump from SlurryPro featuring a different seal arrangement to the one on their current pump. Given the limited space available at the site, the pump would be built upon a bespoke sliding base. This would enable the client to undertake easier inspection and maintenance of the slurry pump and reduce repair time - thus keeping any future downtime to a minimum.

In addition to a new slurry pump, Harsco Metals will also benefit from Atlantic Pumps large stock of SlurryPro parts - all available for next day delivery from their Sheffield-based premises.
