An industrial pump is a device that moves fluids (liquids or gases), or sometimes slurries, by mechanical action. Considered as an engineering success, pumps are specifically designed to endure some of the most the toughest services by offering the most reliable and efficient choice.

We at Sujal Pumps, provide complete pumping solutions for various types of industries in some of the harshest and remote environments. Our pumps are able to operate successfully in sump conditions, and can also be readily applied on floating dewatering or other floating pump platforms.

Slurry pumps are a heavy and robust version of centrifugal pumps, capable of handling tough and abrasive duties. There are two main types of pumps that are used for slurry pumping:

  • Horizontal slurry pumps
  • Vertical slurry pumps

Horizontal slurry pumps

Horizontal slurry pumps are often called dry mounted pumps because the hydraulic end and the drive unit are located outside the sump. It is the most common type as they are available for a wide range of head and flow conditions and material options. It can be used in industries where there is a risk of flooding.

Vertical slurry pumps

Vertical Slurry Pumps can be subdivided into two main groups:

  • Tank pumps
  • Cantilever sump pumps

Tank pumps are considered dry installed pumps. The sump is incorporated in the pump and vertical inlet prevent air blocking and give smooth operation. There are no submerged bearings or shaft seals, but quite a long shaft overhang from lower bearing to the impeller.

Cantilever sump pumps are considered semi-dry installed, as the hydraulic end is lowered into the slurry, but the drive unit and support structure are dry installed. Similar to tank pumps, there are no submerged bearings or shaft seals, but a long shaft overhang. These types of pumps are mounted with a base plate over the sump.Vertical Slurry Pump
