Our qualified equipment for mining and metal and mineral processing allows us to comply with all requirements in these industries. We offer EPC companies, operators, and end-users our complete portfolio of high-end metering, process and centrifugal pumps and pumping systems.
When developing our solutions we take industry standards as well as your requirements and circumstances into consideration. Wide range of pressures and flows, hermetically sealed units, high efficiency design and extreme safety are a matter of course for LEWA. We offer you a safe tool for ore extraction, treatment and finishing in the form of our pumps and systems. For example, with features as sandwich PTFE diaphragm for maximum pumping safety of cyanides and sulfuric acids, ensuring maximum cost-efficiency!
Our many years of experience mean that we are able to offer international engineering and project expertise to assist you in all phases of your project.

When coal is refined, it is ground as fine as dust and mixed into a suspension kept at a high temperature. LEWA diaphragm metering pumps with a remote pump head are used for this.
LEWA process pumps are used to reinject sulfuric acid at 98% into the main pipelines that go to the heap leach sprinklers.
The NIKKISO Non-seal canned motor pump is perfectly suited for transfer and circulation tasks in the chemical industry. We are happy to help you make your selection.
LEWA provides you with custom-designed metering systems according to your specifications. Trust in our experience gained from 60 years of metering technology.
