Pumps and Circular Economy

For several years, due to the good prices of metals and the lack of engineering and manufacturing capabilities installed in Latin America, the mining industry has operated under a lineal philosophy with its overseas providers, over-stocking pump parts and components with a “throw things away” approach. However the current economic crisis, global warming and a … Continuar leyendo
