  • Powerful Suction Lift.
    ARO Dewatering Series pumps have been engineered to address this key performance capability, where it comes to getting fluids up and out of critical areas within the mine.
  • Big Flow Rates.
    Deliver industrty leading flow rates to cover even teh most demanding operation in the mine. 
  • Need to Pump Solids or Semi-Solids?
    No Problem! The Dewatering Series Pumps can handle semi-solids up to 1" (25.4mm) in diameter. Simply remove two bolts and the front of the screen comes off for easy access to large NPT or BSP threaded inlet ports.
  • Comfort-Grip Handles Improve Portability.
    While air-operated diaphragm pumps are valued for their portability around the site, having handles on the pump make things even more convenient. Our Dewatering Pumps feature comfort-grip handles that allow the user or maintenance personnel to get the pump from point A to point B quicker and with less hassle. 
  • Maintenance - Wise, Bolted is Better.
    Our Dewatering Pumps feature bolted construction for faster and easier maintenance...especially when compared to band clamps that require two people and three hands to re-assemble. 
  • Easy-Access Screened Inlets.
    In mining operations where pumping conditions include all sorts of unwanted debris, our pump inlet screens keep the trash out of the pump. When it is time to remove for pump inspection or replacement, they have an easy-to-access design that will cut maintenance time down to size. 
  • Stall-Free, Ice-Free Operation.
    The patented ARO air motor design is an integral part of the new Dewatering Series pumps. When other pumps stall out or ic-over, especially in intermittent operation, the ARO pump keeps on going without any need to apply hot water or hammers. 
  • Rugged & Reliable.
    We understand the world of mining; operating conditions that can be brutal on production equipment. Our Dewatring Pumps, and all of our equipment, have been built to both withstand and flourish in these extreme conditions,
