How to size and select the right slurry pumps for your application? You can find the answer and much more in Slurry Pump Basic Handbook.
Process plants. Steel works. Pumping of cuttings and chips.
Hang the smaller pumps in the sump. Bolt the larger units to a permanent base plate.
Minimal maintenance and eliminated need for water flushing. Bearings have double seal protection against contamination.
Supplied with parts in wear resistant natural rubber, High Chrome white iron alloy, and other materials. Parts are fully interchangeable and can be combined for optimum life.
• Floor sumps in process plants
• Mill scale pumping in steel work
• Pumping of machine tool cuttings
• Wood chips pumping
With small sump pumps is it possible to hang the pump in the sump by the lifting bracket provided. Larger units are normally bolted to a permanent base plate. Pump bearings are located in a housing above the base plate for accessibility and protection.
All pumps can run dry intermittently. Pumps with metal pump parts can run dry for an unlimited length of time. Special designs giving extended length, with the bearings below the base plate, are available on request.
The heavy duty pump shaft is of cantilever design, hanging below the bearing housing. There are no submerged bearings, stuffing box or shaft seals. This design ensures minimum maintenance and eliminates the need for water flushing.
The pump shaft is mounted in grease lubricated roller bearings. Impeller clearance is maintained by external axial adjustment of the shaft/bearing assembly. Bearings have double seal protection against contamination.
Standard pumps are supplied with parts in wear resistant natural rubber or High Chrome white iron alloy, with a nominal hardness of 600 BHN.
Other wear part materials available include elastomers in synthetic rubbers and polyurethane and metals such as 316 stainless steel and CD4MCu. Parts in different materials are fully interchangeable and can be combined for optimum life.
The “wet end” parts have large material sections for extra long wear life and are designed for the toughest of applications.
Single volute and generous solids passage through the pump ensure safe and clogless operation. The “wet end” assembly is suspended from a tubular column below the bearing housing.
Pumps can be supplied with a V-belt drive, motor and drive guard. The motor is mounted vertically, on an adjustable motor plate fitted beside the bearing housing.
Motor size and V-belt drive vary with the pump application. Minimum data required for an approximate pump, speed and drive motor selection are:
• Slurry flow rate
• Slurry density
• Total discharge head
The sump pumps are designed specifically for abrasive slurries and feature robust design with ease of maintenance.
Sala VS sump pump range is one of the strongest, toughest and reliable high-volume ranges available on the market. It is for this reason that the range is preferred throughout the world by most heavy industries.
Sala VSH and Sala VSM pumps are a combination of the classic Sala VS sump pumps and Orion Series horizontal pump wet ends.
The combination provides a major advantage to the customer: the same wet end parts are used for both horizontal slurry pumps and sump pumps, thus reducing parts inventory and simplifying maintenance.
It also enables generating a higher TDH, pump head.
The most common Metso pumps and pump configurations have been made available in 3D for easy integration into your plant layout drawings.
Bareshaft pump models as well as pump assemblies with motor and drive are available to be downloaded in .stp file format.
