Thomas Simplicity Series horizontal dredge pumps are designed for dredging large and abrasive materials. They allow maximum particle size passage while maintaining high efficiency.
The standard pumps can be configured for deck/hull mounting, or ladder/underwater mounting, and in either right hand or left hand rotation.
Wear parts constructed from high alloy materials.
To meet rugged operating conditions, an oversized, high-strength alloy steel shaft is furnished.
Stuffing box and shaft sleeve
An extra deep stuffing box equipped with a lantern ring gives sealing of the shaft opening. Replaceable shaft sleeve allows for quick maintenance of the sealing surface.
Anti-friction roller bearings are housed in separate radial and thrust assemblies for maximum rigidity and alignment. The bearing frames offer single piece housing and increased shaft size.
Adjusting screw allows axial adjustment of impeller, shaft and bearing assembly to compensate for wear, maintaining maximum pump efficiency.
Much like the deck or hull mounted dredge pumps, Thomas Simplicity dredge pumps for underwater applications offer the same powerful performance and operational reliability while submerged.
Underwater dredge pumps are productive tools that take advantage of the pump being in close proximity to the abrasive material. This placement increases performance and production.
