Submersible Slurry Pump

A submersible slurry pump is a type of pump designed to handle abrasive and high-density slurries. Slurry pumps are used in various industries, such as mining, dredging, construction, and wastewater treatment, where there is a need to pump a mixture of solid particles and liquids. At GN we have ten different sizes of our submersible slurry pumps. From 10m height to 24m height, different flow capacity and outlet diameter. These pumps are designed to be submerged in the fluid they are pumping. This design is beneficial for applications where the pump needs to be placed directly in the slurry or fluid. Submersible slurry pumps are specifically engineered to handle slurries with a high concentration of abrasive solids. They are equipped with robust impellers and wear-resistant materials to withstand the abrasive nature of the pumped material. The pump is enclosed in a sealed housing to prevent water or other fluids from entering the motor or other critical components. This submersible design also enhances safety and minimizes the risk of leaks. These pumps are built with heavy-duty materials and construction to withstand the harsh conditions associated with pumping abrasive slurries. Materials such as high-chrome alloys are often used for wear parts. Some submersible slurry pumps offer variable speed controls and features for adjusting the agitating force. This allows operators to optimize performance based on the specific characteristics of the slurry being pumped. The design of these pumps aims to maximize efficiency in pumping slurries, ensuring that a high percentage of the input power is converted into useful work. Submersible slurry pumps find applications in various industries, including mining (for transporting tailings and mineral processing slurries), dredging (for moving sediment and dredged materials), and wastewater treatment (for handling sludge and abrasive wastewater). It’s important to note that the selection of a submersible slurry pump should be based on factors such as the type of slurry, particle size, flow rate, and the specific requirements of the application. Proper maintenance is also crucial to ensure the longevity and efficiency of the pump in handling challenging slurry conditions. The slurry pump is the ideal centrifugal pump for feeding to decanter centrifuge, and feeding from mud pit for to the shale shakers on the mud systems, and desander or desilter.
