What Are the Common Types of Slurry Pumps and How to Choose?


There are many types and models of slurry pumps on the market. Which of the many types of slurry pumps is more suitable for your needs? This article will discuss the types of slurry pumps and recommendations for choosing a slurry pump. Please be patient with this article!


Introduction of Slurry Pump

A slurry pump is a type of pump designed for pumping liquid containing solid particles. Slurry pumps change in design and construction to adjust to multiple types of slurry which varies in the concentration of solids, size of solid particles, the shape of solid particles, and composition of the solution.


Common Slurry Pump Types

  1. Horizontal Slurry Pump
  2. Vertical Slurry Pump
  3. Submerged Slurry Pump
  4. Submersible Slurry Pump


Horizontal Slurry Pump

When the position of the pump shaft is parallel to the horizontal plane, it is called Horizontal Slurry Pump. The horizontal slurry pump is a single-stage single-suction axial suction cantilever horizontal centrifugal pump with high-strength and wear-resistant materials for the over-flow parts. according to the different suction media, the filter components of various materials can be exchanged.

A horizontal slurry pump is suitable for conveying strong abrasion, high concentration, corrosive large or fine particle slurry, this series of slurry pumps can be widely used in metallurgy, mining, electric power, coal mine, and other industries to transport abrasive slurry containing a large number of solid materials.


Vertical Slurry Pump

When the position of the pump shaft is perpendicular to the horizontal plane, it is called a Vertical Slurry Pump. Generally, the vertical slurry pump is used in the slurry pool to pump the slurry, and the pump head should be placed below the liquid level, so it is also called the Submerged Slurry Pump, but not all the whole pumps are submerged in the water. if the motor and other non-pump head components are also put into the slurry, the pump is called Submersible Slurry Pump.

A vertical slurry pump is mainly suitable for conveying corrosive, coarse particles and high concentration slurry.


Submerged Slurry Pump

The Submerged Slurry Pump is a vertical single-stage single-suction cantilever centrifugal pump, the impeller is a semi-open impeller, and a mixing blade is arranged at the suction edge extension of the impeller.

The main features of the submerged slurry pump are that the length of the pump shaft in the submerged part is between 800-2000mm, there is no bearing between the impeller and the pump shell, the driving unit is installed on the motor support, and support seat by the vertical motor, and the coupling is used to connect with the pump.

A submerged slurry pump is mainly used in municipal engineering, paper mills, cement plants, printing and dyeing plants, and other industries to pump slurry, quicksand, sludge, and other fluids.


Submersible Slurry Pump

The submersible Slurry Pump is the coaxial integration of the pump and the motor, and the motor submerges into the slurry. There is no need to build complex fixtures and protective measures on the ground. The motor is protected by the mechanical seal, which can effectively prevent high-pressure water and impurities from entering the motor cavity. The stirring impeller touches the deposition surface directly, the slurry concentration is controlled by the diving depth, and the slurry automatically pours into the pump to save energy.

Submersible slurry pump is suitable for conveying slurry containing abrasive particles such as sand, cinder, tailings, etc., mainly used in metallurgy, electric power, river dredging, sand extraction, municipal mud process, and other industries.


With So Many Types of Slurry Pumps, How Should We Choose?

The type of mud pump purchased for the use environment of each industry is different, and it should be selected according to the specific situation. If you really don’t know how to choose, you can also consult the customer service of Quanyi Pump Industry. In addition to the use environment, there is another important factor. , that is the selection design of the mud pump, which is related to the normal operation of the mud pump and the normal maintenance of the accessories;

1. Application field, operating environment, does the mud pump need to transport corrosive slurry? solid particle size

2. Are there specific requirements for the mud pump, flow rate, head and power when designing the project?

3. Is the area where the mud pump needs to be installed, whether it is outdoor or indoor, is the temperature freezing in winter?



Slurry pump selection and operation can vary based on various factors on site. This is a complex task because balancing the pumps available on the market is very difficult. However, try to consider the flow, pressure, viscosity, abrasiveness, particle size and particle type of the slurry you are dealing with. If you need more help, an application engineer should help you consider these factors to help you find the best pump for your project.
