Hydro-transportation of solids lies at the very origins of Aurum Pumpen GmbH successful businesses. Thanks to rolling silica and abrasive quartz, the Aurum Group grew into what it is today.


Sand extraction is one of our historical core activities. Aurum Pumpen GmbH proposes you our large range of APF wear resistant pumps, either with High Chrome alloys or polymer lined. As well, sand extraction is the main application of ADS and ADST Aurum dredgers lines.
Sand extraction is a science on its own:

  • Compact, clayish, rocky, moving deposits… For each situation, senior Aurum application engineers need to source in their extensive experience in order to deliver the perfectly fitting pumping or dredging solution.
  • Hydro-transportation mastery is the key to productivity and profitability. Achieving controlled, constant and permanent highest minerals concentrations is the output of Aurum innovative research and development efforts.

Sand Processing

Dredging and extracting is often only a beginning. Material has yet to be washed, sieved, sorted in sub-products, accounted, buffered, flocculated, dewatered, stored, re-loaded.Perfect inter-compatibility between your dredger and your processing plant is key to achieve productivity gains, avoid redundancy and limit investments to the strict necessary.
Aurum Experts study in parallel the best fitting dredging scheme and the shortest way to your end product, taking into account your job site parameters, process constrains and commercial targets.
We do work in tight partnership with renowned German, Austrian and Dutch equipment manufacturers.

Aurum Pumpen Engineering GmbH can design and install your new full equipped:

  • Fixed, semi-mobile or mobile,
  • High tech or classical,
  • Wet or dry

Sand processing plant and sand storage plant.
