Metso Outotec addresses pump upgrade and replacement potential with MD Low Riders

Metso Outotec says it has strengthened its MD series of mill discharge pumps with compact-size Low Rider pumps for easy replacements and upgrades.

This new cost-efficient pump range is targeted especially for installations with limited space, with the pumps designed to fit the footprint of an existing installation, it says.

Timo Torvinen, Vice President of Pumps Business & Product Management at Metso Outotec, said: “I am happy to see this new addition to our offering of Planet Positive MD series pumps. With its reduced mechanical footprint, the MD Low Rider is a perfect replacement for any pump type or make. It can be installed at a fraction of the usual site modification cost and complexity.”

The Metso Outotec MD Low Rider series covers sizes from MD400 (400 mm inlet) to MD700 (700 mm inlet), in high chrome and rubber options.

All MD Low Rider pumps are designed to use the existing hydraulic components with a newer and shorter drive end, Metso Outotec said. This reduces the overall weight of the pump, while allowing for for complete pump change-outs. They also use the proven MD hydraulics and wet-end components, the OEM added.
