A Fast Flow 3" pump weighs 80% less and can pump 2.5 times the water of an electric submersible pump
Fast Flow Mining Highlights
MSHA no problem
No electricity required
Work up to the mine face
26 lb pumps move up to 600 GPM
Easily handles coal fines & heavy mud
Can be powered by existing hydraulics
Simple to use and maintain
No MHSA Certification needed here!
“The type of pump you describe does not fall into a category of equipment that MSHA approves. In addition, there is not a regulation that would require a hydraulic powered pump to be MSHA approved.”

Recently, Fast Flow Pumps participated in a coal mine reliability test and outperformed electric submersible pumps in the key fields of safety and reliability.
The Fast Flow pumps were immune to the electrical deterioration effects that plagued the other submersibles, including burnt electrical heads, damaged electrical windings and cable wiring failure. More importantly, Fast Flow hydraulic submersible pumps completely eliminate the danger of running the three phase electric service to electric submersibles, and eliminates standing in several inches of water with 480 volts nearby. Fast Flow pumps have other advantages in the mines, including portability, self-priming design, and the ability to handle coal fines without clogging. Fast Flow pumps performed favorably when attached to the auxiliary hydraulics of a mine pinner, and can be run from several other equipment types.
