A slurry pump is a type of pump designed for pumping liquid containing solid particles. Slurry pumps changes in design and construction to adjust to multiple type of slurry which varies in concentration of solids, size of solid particles, shape of solid particles, and composition of solution.
The drive is coupled directly to the pump via a flange. This solution is extremely cost effective and compact, considerably reducing installation costs and simplifying maintenance. The forces generated by the hydraulic part are supported by the drive itself. Each drive used is adequately selected based on their specific technical parameters and are subject to numerous duration tests with heavy loads. The DN series is the reference point for almost all pumps installed in the industry.
A few years ago, Sulzer launched the energy-efficient CPE ANSI (American National Standards Institute) centrifugal pump range. Now, responding to the market demand, Sulzer provides an IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) motor compatible range of the pump.
