The Borwa Grout Pump is a mechanical type grout pump that operates with a pneumatic hand control valve. The Grout Pump is used to pump grout, in liquid form, into roof bolt cavities in order to stabilise them. The Borwa Pump is a robust and easy-to-use design. The Borwa Grout Pump is operated via a control valve system, and is connected to a retractable pneumatic cylinder, which eradicates the need for heavy duty hand pumping. The Borwa Grout Pump is available in two designs, namely
The practical benefits of using the Borwa Grout Pump are significant, and include:
- The Borwa Horizontal Pump system; and
- Borwa Vertical Pump system.
Bolting has become a critical component of the mining process today, as it not only improves safety but also allows for greater productivity. A critical phase of this bolting process is the pumping of grout into hang walls, for purposes of wall stability. The Borwa Grout Pump makes sure this process is done in the most efficient manner, making it a viable financial investment.
- The operator no longer has to carry around a heavy tool;
- Very little training is required;
- Manual pumping is no longer required;
- The stability of the grout flow is ensured, which prevents unnecessary spillage and do-overs, saving both time and money.
