slurry pump – dredging pump – sand pump basics. in this section you will find what a submersible slurry pump is and the factors to consider when selecting a submersible slurry pump. slurry is a mixture of liquid and particles of solid matter some of them incapable of being dissolved.
a slurry pump is also known as a lined pump or dredge pump and is a centrifugal pump for transporting a fluid handled containing highly abrasive solids (see abrasion) such as flotations suspensions of slag coal or ore in mining and sinter sludges or in sand and gravel extraction.they are particularly heavily exposed to erosive wear (see erosion).
a beginner's guide to pumping slurry. it's abrasive thick sometimes corrosive and contains high amounts of solids. no doubt about it slurry is tough on pumps. but the more you understand about what you're pumping the better your pump selection becomes setting you up for longer mean time between failure. and discharge
the slurry and thus subject to wear by the slurry’s solid particles. important factors for slurry pumps such as cooling seals and especially the hydraulic design are with highly abrasive pump media. only the seal rings are exposed to the media. other parts of the seal
the best non-clog and high solids slurry pump on the market. since 1984. best applications: if you are pumping slurry high solids extremely viscous material paste high abrasives (sand & gravel) and material filled with solids then you found the ideal pump for your job. call us.
our line of heavy duty non-clog slurry pumps excel at the most difficult pumping applications including dredging slurry sludge mud sand paste and other high solids and highly viscous pump applications.
