Which Supply Pump Will Do the Job?

InĀ our last blog, we talked about the importance of having a continuous flow of water in diamond drilling, so that the borehole is lubricated, the core bit is cooled and the drill cuttings are flushed from the hole.

Pressure Pumps in Diamond Drilling: Triplex Piston versus Triplex Plunger

In diamond drilling, the continuous flow of water is essential so you can extend the life of the core bit, lubricate the bore hole and flush drill cuttings. Mining and drilling companies alike choose positive displacement pumps as the pressure pumps used on drill rigs. Positive displacement pumps will produce the same flow at a given speed regardless of discharge pressure, providing continuous flow or in other words, they just keep on pumping.
