A slurry pump is a kind of centrifugal pump which uses the centrifugal force generated by a rotating impeller to impart kinetic energy to the slurry.
The selection process for centrifugal slurry pumps needs to consider the following：
1. First confirm the volume of slurry to be transported. Calculate the actual need head of the pump according to the pipeline length, diameter, bends and vertical height.
Naipu supplies a variety of slurry pumps for different uses. Generally speaking, when the concentration is below 30%, our NZJL Light Duty Slurry Pump is suitable. NZJA Heavy Duty Slurry Pump is appropriate for high concentration and high abrasive solids. When under water working is needed, NZJV Vertical Double-suction Slurry Pump is perfect. NZJH High Head Slurry Pump is mainly used in long distance delivery of slurry like tailings delivery. We also have slurry pumps specialized for delivering slurries that contains froth - NZJF Froth Slurry Pump or Foam Slurry Pump.
2. Select the appropriate shaft seals and wet ends materials based on the concentration and pH value of these solids.
Naipu provides shaft seals including Packing Seal, Full Flow Packing Seal, Low Flow Packing Seal, Expeller Seal, High Pressure Expeller Seal, Mechanical Seal, Single Face Mechanical Seal and Double Face Mechanical Seal. For wet ends, we have metal wet ends, rubber wet ends and so on.
