The third of the mineral mining companies in the world use systems with backfill. Backfilling is intended to enhance safety, implement ground control, reduce possible losses of minerals, prevent underground fires, or coal and gas outbursts, and to protect objects in residential areas from destruction. In view of the features of backfill mixture components, specificity of flow to filling points and the required backfill quality standards, it is increasingly urgent to have novel technologies for backfill mixture handling. A cardinally new approach to transportation of liquid and viscous media is the use of low-frequency magnetic peristaltic pumps based on the nature likeliness.
