Vertical slurry pumps

Vertical slurry pumps

Vertical slurry pumps

Good morning everyone:
I'm interested in well-known companies that specialize in slurry pumps. Any recommendations or insights would be appreciated. Thank you!"

Thanks in advance.

RE: Vertical slurry pumps

thanks Pierre;
Its a new one we want to install for waste water.


RE: Vertical slurry pumps

What do you mean by vertical pump exactly?

Waste water is not a slurry.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

RE: Vertical slurry pumps

Please give us more detail.

It is a capital mistake to theorise before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. (Sherlock Holmes - A Scandal in Bohemia.)

RE: Vertical slurry pumps

First question is where in the world is this located?
Second question is what sort of slurry are you looking at?

Then come all sorts of other questions, but without this information, the question is just too vague.

Do you need a pump with a tank, or a pump to be installed in a sump pit? Worldwide, Weir is one of the biggest and best know slurry pump companies, but ITT Goulds and KSB and FL Schmidt and a gazillion others located in China and India have many offerings.

RE: Vertical slurry pumps

Thank you so much for all,
It was a question about fabricants of slurry pumps to transfer wast water from a pit to a treatment station.
I wanted to help our buyer.

RE: Vertical slurry pumps

When slurry is referenced in the pumping world, it is generally assumed to be some mixture of water and sand. Wastewater is generally considered as different from slurry and is harder to define because it may have rags, bottles, grease and whatever else may be sent down a drain.
Slurry pumps usually have hard metal (high chrome) or polymer-lined wet ends intended to deal with high wear conditions.
Wastewater pump wet ends are usually cast iron with recessed/vortex impellers or some kind of cutter/chopper arrangement to deal with plugging conditions.
These are very general statements.

Again, the quote isn't clear to understand what the question is. Suggest clarifying with your Buyer for more details.
