What is a Slurry Pump
A slurry pump is a class of centrifugal or submersible pump designed for pumping liquid containing solid particles and which may also contain solvents, acids, alcohols, or petroleum.
Slurry pumps are subject to additional wear and are commonly more robust than other pumps. Slurry pumps can be electrically or hydraulically driven.
Slurry pumps can withstand extensive additional wear as they feature heavy duty construction adding a large impeller diameter, shafts, bearings, and internal dimensions.
Applications for Slurry Pumps
Slurry pumps are used in mining, drainage, agriculture, dredging and Industrial (mineral processing) applications.
