Schwing Bioset Wraps Up 2015 Spring KSP Pump Service Seminar


May 14, 2015

Schwing Bioset, Inc. (SBI) held its Spring KSP Pump Service Seminar from May 12 to May 14.  The seminar was once again led by Schwing Bioset’s Quality Control Specialist, Jack Koehler.  The seminar and training is designed for Schwing Bioset customers to learn how to properly use and maintain their equipment, to help ensure they get the most out of it.  This spring, there were 16 attendees from all over the U.S. that attended.  The course builds 24 hours toward quality training and education for the attendee. 

The first two days of training are held in the classroom and cover safety, operations, maintenance and basic hydraulics.  The third day of training provides hands-on experience where attendees train with the SBI Parts and Service, Quality Control, and Customer Service departments working directly with equipment to learn about its use, maintenance, and using it safely.  Some of the topics discussed include hydraulics, poppet valves, power packs, schematic reading, troubleshooting, screw feeders, sludge pumps, preventative maintenance, and much more. 

Schwing Bioset offers two KSP Pump Service Seminars per year.  The next training will take place this coming fall from October 6 – 8, 2015.  Training fills up fast, so please consider registering ahead of time.

Schwing Bioset delivers more MONSTER pumps

January 2008

Six KSP 220 piston pumps with 450kW (600 hp) power packs will travel across the 2008 "ice road" to Lac de Gras, a diamond mine operated by Diavik situated 300 km by air northeast of Yellowknife. Engineered by Golder Associates in Sudbury, ON, the KSP 220's are designed to each deliver 185 m3/hr (815 gpm), at 90 bar (1,305 psi) pressure continuously. There are three pumping stations, each station including two pumps that are arranged in series feeding into common pipelines. The pumps are synchronized to switch at the same time and provide steady flow of material. As a critical component in the highly engineered paste plant, performance, reliability, and experience are essential to a successful mining operation making Schwing Bioset the natural choice for a pumping partner.

Schwing Bioset delivers BIG pumps to De Beers

January 2007

Two KSP 220 piston pumps with 600kW (800 hp) power packs are traveling across the "ice road" to Snap Lake, a diamond mine operated by De Beers in a remote region of northern Canada. Engineered by AMEC in Vancouver, BC, the KSP 220's will be the largest piston pumps in North America delivering 135 m3/hr (600 gpm), at 85 bar (1,230 psi) pressure continuously. The piston pumps are a critical component in the highly engineered paste plant so performance, reliability, and experience were key factors during AMEC's equipment evaluations. Schwing Bioset looks forward to being a part of De Beers first diamond mine outside of Africa, and also the first underground diamond mining operation in Canada.
