  • Numerical simulation of drainage scenarios for lowering groundwater rise due to construction of a new barrage on the Nile River

    The government of Egypt constructed a New Naga Hammadi Barrage (NNHB) 3.6 km downstream of the Old Naga Hammadi Barrage (ONHB). Upon construction, the water level raised by about 0.5 and 4 m upstream and within the river reach between ONHB and NNHB respectively. In this paper, a two–layer groundwater model was built using MicroFEM to study the groundwater rising problem. The model was used to ...

  • Less and More : Why You Should Pump Slurries with a Peristaltic Pump

    LESS WATER Peristaltic Pumps Use Less Water Hose pumps can circulate slurry SGs of 1.6 to 1.8 or up to 80% solid content. The traditional centrifugal pump loses efficiency when the slurry SG reaches 1.3 or 30% solids. With this limitation, slurry pumps have significant process water demands : on a plant processing 70 tonnes of ore per hour, every time a hose pump replaces a ...
