Slurry & Sludge Pumps
A slurry pump is a type of pump designed for pumping liquid containing solid particles. It tends to be more robust than liquid pumps; they have added sacrificial material and replaceable wear parts to withstand wear due to abrasion and are found in dredging, process pumping applications, highly viscous or abrasive material, sludge, muck, paste, high solids and abrasive applications.
Both centrifugal and positive displacement pumps can be used for slurry, and we’ve got them both. Configurations include horizontal, vertical suspended and submersible.
Slurry is usually classified according to the concentration of solids. Engineering classification of slurry is more complex and involves concentration, particle size, shape and weight in order to determine abrasion severity. For engineering selection of slurry pumps, slurry is classified as class 1, class 2, class 3 and class 4.
Selection of slurry pumps is more difficult than selection of pumps for water and liquids. Call us to make sure you get the right pump for your application.
