This paper reports on erosion-effects of slurry flows on a number of industrial centrifugal pumps selected from an active copper mine field. The field samples include three metallic pumps operating in a serial-arrangement, and a number of worn pump-components with fully rubber-lined or metallic wetted-surfaces. Physical samples were also collected and photographed under an electronic microscope.
