Two new application sheets available below. The first application sheet is for the Canadian installation of an SP SLURRY Pump and the other is for a 6NHTA Redi-Prime Pump installation. Both are in the .pdf format. More applciation sheets available here.
U.S. Operating Services, Scrubgrass Generating Station - coal fired power plant-case study
Customer: U.S. Operating Services, Scrubgrass Generating Station.Contact: Philip Jones, Plant Engineer.Type of Facility: Coal fired power plantThe Scrubgrass Generating Station owns and operates a Crisafulli FLUMP system. The FLUMP was manufactured with an abrasion resistant hardened carbon steel Crisafulli J-series slurry pump. The FLUMP dredge is operated manually from an on-shore control panel. Slurry is pumped to a drying bed for several lagoons at distances up to 800 feet. The slurry consists of water and...

Improve Slurry Pump Working Life
Close suction valve before stopping slurry pump. Enough clean water should be supplied to pump all the slurry in pipeline out to avoid solid precipitated in the suction tube and volute line. Otherwise, there will be situations that affect the life of the slurry pump. Can not start the slurry pump again after the solid precipitated. Start the slurry pump with heavily shake. This is mainly caused by the precipitated slurry make the impeller rotating with eccentric force. Block the pipeline if too...
how to improve slurry pump suction distance
Strengthen the maintenance of slurry pump
Adjust the gap between slurry pump impeller and liner and plate. The gap had been adjusted before out factory, but after working for a time, due to the high-pressure of volute liner and low-pressure of suction, caused the slurry leakage through the impeller gap, inevitably lead to the impeller and plate or volute liner seal segment wear and increase the gap. The gap size has great impact on the slurry speed, and the slurry speed determined the wear of impeller and plate, also the seal effect in volute liner. As...
