From Submersible Pumps
An agitator for slurry pumps delivers kinetic energy (energy of motion) to solids surrounding the pump intake, re-suspending them into a fluid state which would have otherwise buried and starved the pump of liquid. The solids are pulled into the submersible slurry pump and pushed on through the discharge, keeping the intake clear and free of slurry accumulation. A submersible slurry pump without mechanical agitation will only pump the water, leaving the solids behind to accumulate around your pump intake, and eventually starve the pump by blocking the intake. Piranha Slurry Agitator Pumps are available with flotation devices and a variety of options, including electric hoist, traversing winch, floating discharge piping, control panels, and high-pressured jet ring (for additional agitation).
- For industrial, mining, milling, power plant, water treatment, sewage, organic waste, or anywhere slurry solids have a tendency to accumulate.
- Designed for pumping stubborn and settled sediment & solids up to 2.5”.
- Pump heavier concentrations and larger quantities of sediment.
- Can withstand long term wear and abrasion.
- For use on any of our flotation platforms.
Piranha excels in the most demanding applications. Our heavy-duty slurry pumps are ideal for pumping sludge, slurry and heavily contaminated liquids. The design, and material specification, frelect Piranha’s unwavering commitment to supply quality products that help our customers become more profitable.
Our pumps proudly uphold the Piranha brand promise for a specific set of application criteria. Wet end components are constructed with abrasive-resistant (HRC 58-60 hardness), high-chromium alloy steel. Additionally, long, reliable pump life is bolstered by high efficiency 1800 RPM motors, class F motor insulation, double mechanical seals, a 410 stainless steel rotor and shaft sleeve, a cooling jacket and heavy-duty, 5-conductor cable.
These features have been specified to optimize performance in applications such as: coal and slurry transfer, sand and gravel dewatering, tank sludge clean-out, mill scale and ash transfer, barge clean-out and dewatering and pond reclamation. Cost-effective pumping over the lifetime of the application is made possible by selecting the right features for a given environment.
Need to float your pump? Piranha offers a variety of our FP-Series Flotation Platforms for your pumping and flotation needs. Our platforms can be customized to meet the demands of your unique application.
For industrial, mining, milling, power plant, water treatment, sewage, organic waste, or anywhere slurry solids have a tendency to accumulate, agitator pumps are the answer. Since water always flows to the path of least resistance, a pump without mechanical agitation will only pump the water, leaving the solids behind to accumulate around your pump intake, and eventually starving the pump by blocking the intake. Agitator pumps deliver kinetic energy (energy of motion) to slurry solids surrounding the pump intake, re-suspending them into a fluid state. These solids, which would have otherwise buried and starved the pump of liquid, are pulled into the pump and pushed on through the discharge keeping the intake clear and free of slurry accumulation.
Submersible pumps, which are more efficient than jet pumps, contain a hermetically sealed motor and are used for pushing fluid to the surface. We offer submersible pumps for several applications, including mines, manholes, construction sites, sewage and other areas with a high concentration of solids. Our submersible pumps come in several different varieties in order to handle the different conditions you may face in the field:
Agitator Slurry Pumps – Heavy-duty submersible pumps with mechanical agitators for pumping high concentrations of solids.
Solids Handling Pumps – Recessed impeller style pumps for any solids laden pumping applications: slurry, sewage, debris, mud, and sand.
Dewatering Pumps – Heavy duty abrasion resistant pumps for dewatering: mines, power plant sumps, manholes, and construction sites. Also as water supply pumps (3/4 to 45 hp).
Corrosion Resistant Pumps – For severe corrosion: all 316 stainless-steel recessed impeller pumps. (1 to 10 hp)For moderate corrosion: Rhino Coated aluminum with stainless steel impellers, shafts, and hardware (1.5 to 45 hp).
No matter what pump you’re looking for, Piranha Pumps will deliver on your expectations, however high they may be. When it comes to the best heavy-duty submersible pumps in the business, look no further than Piranha Pumps.
