The use of the Oddesse
submersible motor pumps in the mining industry requires an adapted
execution for the most different application conditions for the products,
as it is represented here on the basis of the installations in the copper
mining industry and in the delivery of brine out of a salt lake.
Especially the rewindable Oddesse submersible motors must be able to
resist to the extreme requirements according to place of application. They
dispose of application-optimized windings, high efficiencies and show low
maintenance costs. They are available from 220 V to 1000 V and in 50 Hz or
Due to standardized coupling dimensions, the motors are applicable for
immersible pumps of other manufacturers.
Oddesse submersible motors
feature a power range:
up to 45 kW/ 60 HP in 6-motors,
up to 132 kW/180 HP in 8-motors,
up to 220 kW/300 HP in 10-motors and
up to 300 kW/400 HP in 12-motors.
submersible motors are employed
for the delivery of geothermal waters. In this connection, special
materials and coolants are applied without neglecting the modular
basic construction and the service friendliness of the products.
The outstanding cooling behaviour of the rewindable Oddesse motors
represents one of the most important qualities of the product compared
to international competition.
ISL (in situ
leaching) operation mode with Oddesse submersible motor pumps
The wells are drilled from the surface down to mineral deposit, a
water leading layer. Dependent on the geologic state of the layer a
light acid or alkaline solution and oxygen is pumped into the mineral
deposit. Thus a chemical leaching of the mineral deposits from the
rock into the solution takes place. Employing of Oddesse submersible
motor pumps the solution, now ore containing, is pumped back to the
surface. In the preparation plant the ore is separated from the
solution and the solution is processed for re-use.
Advantages of ISL against surface and underground exploitation
- Low environmental impact.
- ISL is less expensive and offers
shorter setup time till production start, i.e. a more rapid ore
exploitation of mineral deposits is possible.
- The waste is low and is collected
in evaporation ponds.
- No expensive infrastructure is
required, as for surface and underground exploitation.
- Minimum terrain destruction, only.
- After termination of ore
exploitation work the wells can be closed and sealed.
