Slurry pumps are more robust than liquid pumps; they have added sacrificial material and replaceable wear parts to withstand wear due to abrasion. Both centrifugal and positive displacement pumps can be used for slurry. Centrifugal slurry pumps can have between bearing supported shafts with split casing and a rubber or metal lined casing.
Centrifugal pumps use the force generated by a rotating impeller to impact kinetic energy to the slurry. Considerations for your slurry pump Pumping slurry can cause excessive wear and tear on pumps and their components as the slurry can clog suction and discharge lines.
How Slurry Pumps Work. Using the conversion of rotational kinetic energy into the hydrodynamic energy of the fluid flow, centrifugal Slurry Pumps motivate fluid flow along pipelines. Pump rotation, and thus rotational energy, is typically created by the electric motor driving the Pump shaft through a V belt drive.
A slurry pump is usually a centrifugal, lobe, peristaltic or submersible pump. Usually manufactured from thick and durable iron, they effectively handle harsh liquids without damaging or wearing down pump components. All Pumps has a wide range of slurry pumps available.
Slurry Pumps. Slurry pumps are usually submersible pumps, peristaltic pumps or centrifugal pumps. They are used to transfer slurries, which can be thick and/or abrasive. One of the most abrasive slurries is produced in the process of benefaction. Pumps for acidic chemicals and abrasive slurries must be able to produce high flow rates and ...
There are numerous companies manufacturing pumps in Australia and several hundred who import, resell or supply product to the industry. Some of Australias early history in pump manufacture is represented by two organizations who still operate, albeit with at least one change of ownership since their early days.
