14 Mar.,2023


What we refer to as slurry is basically a liquid containing solid particles. When you want to pump this slurry, you'll have different requirements than when you are pumping just dirty water. A wastewater pump is not able to handle the slurry's solid particles. That is where Slurry Pumps come in. Slurry pumps are a heavy and robust version of centrifugal pumps, capable of handling tough and abrasive duties.

Slurry pumps can be used to move mixtures of liquid and solids in many industries with a broad spectrum of applications such as mine drainage, dredging of settling lagoons and pumping of drilling mud.

Slurry Pumps can be used:

  • -To pump a medium where abrasive particles are present
  • -To transport solids, hydraulically
  • -To pump the end product in a process
  • -To keep clean up sumps clean from solid
