About Centrifugal Slurry Pumps
Centrifugal slurry pumps are used in many industrial applications such as quarrying, mining, recycling, and large-scale manufacturing. They are designed to pump abrasive fluids continuously, and the wearing parts can simply be replaced when worn without having to replace the whole pump.
At the back of the pump is the belt guard which protects operators from the pulleys and belts. A perforated, lightweight belt guard such as the one shown here is easily removed when required, which makes for quicker and safer maintenance of the pump.
This pump is on a fixed base, however slurry pumps can also be sited on sliding bases. The advantages of a sliding bases is that it allows for easier and safer opening and closing of the pump during maintenance, which in turn reduces any downtime for the user.
The shaft is powered by the motor and causes the impeller to rotate rapidly.
Given the forces placed on the impeller and the shaft, the role of the bearing assembly is to keep the shaft and impeller stable and correctly aligned. For this reason, slurry pumps have much larger and more robust bearing assemblies than water pumps. The cartridge can be adjusted backwards and forwards to change the impeller clearance as it wears.
The volute casing houses the volute which houses the impeller. This is designed to be a replaceable spare, rather than wearing out the entire volute like water pumps do, therefore it’s easier and cheaper to maintain. The slurry enters the pump through the suction pipe. The force of the rotating impeller pushes the fluid outwards into the discharge pipe at high pressure.
