Mining and quarry applications are dominantly abrasive slurry applications.

Mechanical seals generally fail very quickly. Peristaltic pumps can pump varying viscosity fluids along with solids, making them perfectly suited as mining pumps or quarry pumps.

For Albin Pump hose pumps, fluid viscosities can range up to 60,000 cP with flow rates up to 144m³/h (635 GPM).
