”Slurry Pump should also be considered as a generic term to distinguish it from other centrifugal pumps mainly intended for clear liquids”. Slurry Pump – name by duty The term Slurry Pump as stated covers various types of heavy duty centrifugal pumps used for hydraulic transportation of solids.
WEIR SLURRY PUMPING MANUAL iv–1 Symbols used The terms slurry and mixture in this Manual are used interchangeably to describe a mix of any loose solids made up in any proportions and combinations of any particle sizes and any conveying liquid.
Horizontal slurry pumps Vertical slurry pumps Submersible slurry pumps Horizontal slurry pumps These types of pumps are often called dry mounted as the hydraulic end and the drive unit are lo ed outside the sump. It is the main group of slurry pumps and they are available for a wide range of head and flow
Slurry Pumping Handbook – AU Page 6 Issued: Feb 2000 The centrifugal slurry pump must be designed to allow the passage of abrasive particles which can at time be extremely large. The largest Warman slurry pump for example can pump particles up to 530mm in spherical size. Slurry pumps therefore need much wider and heavier impellers to

Consequently it is very important to select and size slurry pumps to match the appli ion. The aim of this handbook is to give guidance in the sizing and selection of slurry pumps for different pumping appli ions. The handbook presents the basics and gives practical tips on how to minimize the costs for hydraulic transportation of solids.
conditions found in slurry services. Wilfley Model K pumps are also available in natural rubber synthetic elastimers and urethane. Wear in a slurry pump is a complex process. It is a function of: The size and concentration of the solid particles The shape and hardness of the solid particles Temperature PH level
