Copper from Chile

Chile’s main export goods are raw materials. Progressive digitalisation and the resulting demand for electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets are having a positive impact on Chile’s economy. The country is naturally rich in ­copper, molybdenum and antimony. Giant mines extract these precious resources and transport them above ground.

»In order to mine copper ore, our slurry pumps have to transport large quantities of sand and stone, which leads to a high level of wear. Our spare parts centres in Santiago and Antofagasta ensure that our customers’ machines are always ready for operation.«
Jenny Jara, a KSB SupremeServ employee in ­Santiago, is the contact for the Los Bronces ­copper mine and ensures that the spare parts required for maintenance and repairs are always available on time.

Our pumps and valves are in operation in countless systems in industry, water management and energy applications. In Chile, in ­contrast, mining is the dominant industry, as reflected by the sales figures for slurry pumps.
