Young Engineering offers a complete and globally proven set of solutions for the problems encountered in deep well mining.  

These solutions are engineered to:

  • Advance the safety of miners
  • Protect valuable equipment infrastructure
  • Reduce maintenance costs
  • Increase efficiency

The mining industry has unique requirements, which must be taken into account when engineering and installing their dewatering systems. Traditional mine dewatering systems use relief valve skids to protect the pump system at the bottom of the mine from substantial damage due to a hydraulic transient events.

A Pump Trip causes the reverse flow of the water column to impact the closed check valve causing a dramatic pressure surge in the piping system as a result. This can cause breaks, leaks or even ruptures in the pump piping system. As a result damaging the pump and flooding of lower levels in the mine.

Whether the mine is large or small, the dewatering process from the bottom of the mine remains a paramount concern, and the need to protect the  pump and piping system from pressure transients.
