A Better Slurry Pump Experience
SlurryPro’s passion for improving wear life and customer experience is greatly demonstrated in the design of the new built-up SlurryPro pumps.
Design improvements and increased safety features have been at the forefront of our engineers thinking. The new build-up is lighter than the previous version yet just as robust and with no change to the overall integrity of the base. A lighter construction has been achieved by a change in the building methods used.
The introduction of modular design and the improvements in the way SlurryPro is designed and manufactured means that assembly time is also greatly reduced, thus reducing lead time. While bespoke designs can take time, we also now have a library of designs in place which allows us to begin manufacturing a new build-up quicker than ever before.
SlurryPro Automatic Greasers
Did you know that one of the most common reasons for pump failure is due to lack of regular lubrication?
All new SlurryPro built-up pumps include provision for an automatic greasing system as standard. Once fitted, this ensures consistent reliable lubrication of the bearings and seals for maximum service life. Manual greasing leads to both over and under greasing due to inconsistent or infrequent application. Over greasing leads to overheating, waste, pollution and premature failure. Under greasing leads to wear, premature repairs and high repair costs.
SlurryPro Automatic Greaser pots are available individually and as part of a kit. The kit includes a bracket which can hold up to five pots of grease. Thanks to the bracket’s powerful magnetism, fitting it to the pump is a quick and simple procedure with no requirement for screws or tools.
Static & Sliding Bases (with Hydraulic Ram)
While our new built-up SlurryPro pumps come with a static base, there is also the option to upgrade to a sliding base. Nominated at the 2018 MPA awards, the sliding base has been further improved by the inclusion of a hydraulic ram meaning we can now fit the sliding base to larger pump sizes.
The introduction of hydraulic ram also means it’s now even easier and safer to open and close pumps regardless of size. The pump can slide open and be closed by just one person, and the need for lifting equipment is reduced. Significant savings can be made to the costs and time associated with servicing and maintenance.
If you have multiple SlurryPro pumps on your site, these can all be made suitable for using the hydraulic ram, but as it is moveable you do not necessarily need to buy a ram for each pump.
Universal Motor Mount
Our new motor mount has been designed to accommodate many motor sizes, which means a different sized motor can be put on the pump without any further engineering. This also speeds up the manufacturing process as pumps can be prepared in advance of confirmation of the final specification. This additionally allows for changes to the pump at a later date with a minimum of disruption.
The health and safety of the user is always at the forefront of our thinking.
The new upgraded design includes an increased number of features such as the perforated belt guard. This can be removed by simply loosening six bolts and lifting the guard off allowing the user quick and easy access.
The build is also fully compliant with guarding regulations.
Reduced Lead Time
The introduction of modular design and the improvements in the way SlurryPro is designed and manufactured means that assembly time is also greatly reduced, thus reducing lead time.
While bespoke designs can take time, we also now have a library of designs in place which allows us to begin manufacturing a new build-up quicker than ever before.
