Slurry pumps are a tougher version of centrifugal processing pumps. A slurry pump is used as a hydraulic transport for solids, whereas a centrifugal pump is primarily used to force out clear liquids. It is basically a water pump that is meant to be used in areas with heavy-solid materials, such as clay, sand, mud and silt. At Arroyo Process Equipment, our slurry pumps are designed for excellent performance, low-energy consumption, easy maintenance and a long wear life.
A slurry pump can be installed wet, semi-dry or dry, depending on the application.
Choosing the correct slurry pump. When it comes to processing pumps, such as a slurry pump, one-size-fits-all does not apply. One of the most important elements in using a slurry pump is the expected abrasion and the nature as well as the size of the solids that will be transported by the water. For example, mines and pipeline applications typically require extremely large slurry pumps that can withstand high levels of abrasion wear.
