SLURRY PUMP FAQ’S
Pumps transfer liquids from one point to another by converting mechanical energy
from rotation into pressure energy (head).
Pressure, friction and flow are three important characteristics of a pump system. Pressure is the driving force responsible for the movement of the fluid. Friction is the force that slows down fluid particles. Flow rate is the amount of volume that is displaced per unit time.
Mining Pump Applications
Manufactured specially to handle suspended solids, be corrosion resistant, impact resistant, and overheating resistant our pumps are ready handle heavy daily use and abuse in tough environments.
How Self-Priming Pumps Work
One of the challenges engineers face when designing a self-priming or process pump is removing air from the piping and pump casing. These casings create the suction necessary for forcing the liquid to the pump. If any air gets into the self-priming pump, it cannot operate properly.
What is Pump Cavitation?
Cavitation is when the fluid being pumped changes into a gas due to low pressure regions around the
impeller. Pumps are designed to move liquid, not gasses. Gasses do not centrifuge.
