Sala ST vertical induced flow pumps.

Vertical induced flow pumps

Sala Series for cloggless performance

Vertical induced flow pumps are tough general purpose slurry pumps. Known for induced flow impellers and low attrition of pumped particles, these pumps are often used for carbon transfer in gold leaching processes and in other applications where large or long, stringy solids are handled.

Versatile applications

Carbon transfer in gold leaching. Handling of large stringy solids. Dandling of long stringy solids.

Design

Heavy-duty pump shaft moves freely under the bearing housing. No journal bearings below the liquid level to maintain.

 

Robust parts

Hydraulic parts are available from stock in cast iron and stainless steel and high chrome.

Global expertise, local support

Vertical induced flow pumps.
Sala ST Series pumps

Metso's vertical induced flow pumps range is better known as Sala ST vertical induced flow pumps.

Equipped with single suction and no shaft sealing, Sala ST vertical pumps can handle severe corrosion, abrasion and temperature extremes in the chemical, minerals processing, pulp and paper, brewing, food and other industries.

Typical applications

  • Carbon transfer in gold leaching
  • Handling of large stringy solids
Design

The heavy duty pump shaft moves freely under the bearing housing.

There are no journal bearings below the liquid level to maintain. The pump has no stuffing box and thus does not require sealing water.

Metallurgy

Hydraulic parts are available from stock in cast iron and stainless steel and high chrome. Some sizes are also available with rubber lined or polyurethane wear parts.

The pump frame assemblies below the base plate are available in carbon steel and stainless steel. Other materials are available upon request.

Vortex impeller is available for Sala ST vertical induced flow pumps.
Impeller

Vortex impeller available

This recessed impeller is located out of the flow pattern. The pumping effect is performed by the vortex that the impeller generates in the slurry.

The passage through the vortex pump is fully open, therefore it is especially suited for pumping fibres and similar material.

Impeller adjustment

Easily adjustable shaft allows setting of pump clearances for maximum performance.

V-belt drive

The V-belt drive permits simple cost-effective adjustment of pump flow rate.
