PUMP TECHNOLOGY

for microballoon & gassed emulsions

SMARTFLOW™, patented pump technology for increased availability & reduced operating costs

EQUIPMENT & SOFTWARE

iMining offers a range of innovative solutions to enhance mining operations, including the SMARTCHARGER™ loading system, designed for confined and inaccessible mining sites, delivering emulsion, additives, and hose lubrication for sensitizing bulk gassed formulations during loading, equipped with electronic control and reporting for precise mass delivery and real-time monitoring. Furthermore, the SMARTFLOW™ pumps are designed for safety and consistency, reducing energy requirements by up to 80% compared to progressive cavity systems, enabling their use in previously inaccessible mining environments. These systems are integrated with the BLASTTRACK™ control system, providing real-time monitoring, reporting, and safety features, while the SMARTTRUCK™ loading trucks and SMARTTRUCK™ BLEND trucks offer flexibility and precise loading capabilities with the support of BLASTTRACK™ smart control and SMARTGPS technology. Additionally, the SMARTDRIVE™ loading systems, designed for underground UV carriers, integrate SMARTFLOW™ pump technologies to enhance safety, energy efficiency, and product consistency in loading operations. Lastly, the SMARTSINK™ pumping system improves the speed and reliability of shaft sinking operations with redundancy and monitoring features, ensuring safety, product consistency, and machine availability.

BLAST HUB

BLASTGRID™ revolutionizes blast design, offering an intuitive interface for both surface and underground blasts. This tool allows users to interact with 2D and 3D blast designs, ensuring precise management of toe burdens, drilling angles, and dimensional compliance. It enables quick examination, timing sequence comparison, and rock property analysis for optimized performance. BLASTGRID™ designs are accessible online, facilitating real-time collaboration and performance inspection. Coupled with BLASTTRACK™ control systems, which are purpose-built for surface and underground loading operations, users can monitor product quality, safety conditions, and blasting data in real time, with seamless integration into the BLASTTRACK™ online platform for a comprehensive view of blasting operations.
