Slurry pumps wet end conversion kit
Metso’s wet end conversion kit overcomes traditional slurry pump problems such as low hydraulic efficiency, premature component failure, inconsistent performance, ineffective centrifugal seals and difficult maintenance.
The impeller design incorporates partial mixed flow main vanes, reducing inlet shock losses at the suction eye. Hydraulic turbulence and recirculation within the casing and impeller are reduced, to yield high efficiencies and longer component life.
Adjustment permits closing the impeller on both sides of the casing, with clearances that result in vastly improved performance and longer pump life. The large impeller diameters operate at slow speed to enhance wear life. The large diameter wear resistant expeller generates a high head and works in conjunction with expelling vanes on the back of the impeller.
This provides a very effective centrifugal seal against positive suction heads without gland leakage. Seal performance improves as running clearance is closed during impeller wear adjustment. The centrifugal seal is a high performance dry shaft seal.
