Slurry pump is also named centrifugal slurry pump, pulp pump, sludge pump or mud pump.
It is one type of centrifugal pump, this pump is used to increase the pressure of liquid and solid particle mixture (which called slurry, pulp, sludge or mud), through centrifugal force (a rotating impeller) and converts electric energy.
Slurry pumps are widely used to transport corrosive or abrasive slurry in many industries such as mining, dredging, power plant y etc. They are often designed to be suitable for heavy-wearing and heavy-duty uses.
The main components of slurry pump is pump wet end parts, casings, the seal parts, shaft ,bearing assembly and base.
Slurry pump has different types according to different standard:
1.According to shaft position, it has horizontal slurry pump and vertical slurry pump.
2.According to impeller quantity, it has single stage slurry pump and multistage slurry pump.
3.According to impeller suction way, it has single suction slurry pump and double suction slurry pump.
The material for pump wet end parts can have metal ,rubber, polyurethane y etc.
The parameters for slurry pump include capacity, head, specific gravity, weight concentration, volume concentration, efficiency, power, speed, NPSH y etc.
