Don‘t take our word for it, just look at these reports

Pioneer has a wealth of experience that it has gained over the last ten years in designing, manufacturing and selling high performance pumps into industries such as rental, petrochemical, food processing, oil & gas, and of course quarrying and mining.

The company is developing this area of the website in order to publish successes where Pioneer's pumps have made a dramatic impact on the customers operations and as such much has been learnt about how best to operate our equipment.

Case studies and application reports will be published here and when used in conjunction with the Education section, developing solutions to your pump applications should not be such a challenge in the future.

Pioneer 150CH dewatering pump dries Kroomdrai mine in Mpumalanga

Kroomdrai mine in Witbank, Mpumalanga suffered large flooding of one section of their coal mine causing downtime in production. Pioneer Pump in conjunction with their dealer, were able to mobilise a 150CH pumpset complete with John Deere 6125 engine to be used in dewatering the section.

The pumpset operated continuously for seven days and removed over 54,000 m3 of water from the mine without stopping and enabled the mine to get back to work quickly to the satisfaction of the mine and workers involved.

The pump replaced two local competitors pumpsets that were struggling and generated more flow than those two pumps combined allowing the mine to take the away and use them on a small flood area.
