What is a High Head Pump & High Head Diesel Water Pump?

High head Dewatering Pumpsets, or commonly referred to as High Head Diesel Water Pump are pumps that are specifically designed for high pressure pumping, typically with lower flows and are most commonly used for dewatering or transfer of water where the water has to be pumped up a significant height or over long distances, such as out of open-cut mine pits and quarry pits.

Because of the pumps being designed for high head they typically will have smaller solids handling capacity than the standard low or medium head dewatering pumps and solids handling models.

These pumps are coupled to diesel engines, and offered in both open-skid mine spec builds as well as the option of fully silenced skid-mount models.
