Advantages of Rubber Lined Slurry Pumps
Slurry pumps with rubber lining are the ideal pump for the mineral sand industry. They have a special rubber lining that makes them heavy duty pumps capable of withstanding high levels of abrasion.
Rubber lined pumps offer many advantages
Robust design - rubber liners are made of special materials and are more resistant to corrosion and wear than their competitors.
Ideal for slurry pumps - Only rubber lined pumps combine strength and corrosion resistance to create a quality slurry pump.
Repairable - Rubber lined slurry pumps can be repaired by simply replacing the bushing.
Depending on your own requirements, propeller seals, mechanical seals or packing seals can be used.
Discharge ports can be placed at 45 degree intervals and oriented in up to 8 different positions depending on your needs.
These mud pumps can pump not only sand, but also more mud. They are very effective in pumping all forms of mud, gravel, concrete, slurry, slush, etc.
Rubber Lined Slurry Pump
The construction aggregate industry conveys all forms of slurry, from fine sand to coarse aggregates.
Fine-grained sand can be extremely abrasive and typically wears slurry pumps quickly. Characteristics of coarse aggregates that can affect pump performance are size, shape and surface texture, as well as gradual changes in particle size, while fine materials can create excessive friction in the pipe.
When pumping slurry in wet sand applications, we must evaluate the abrasive particles flowing through the piping and then assess how they affect the slurry pump. If the pump is lined with poor quality rubber, the particles will not rebound effectively and, as a result, the rubber will begin to break down. The air shavings then begin to accelerate and negatively impact the efficiency of the pump, often leading to turbulence.
Rubber liner pumps have been used for nearly a century to protect plants and equipment from wear and retain their place as the wear material of choice for pumping and separating fine-grained slurries.
Applications of Rubber Lined Slurry Pumps
The frame plate for WAJ series pumps has interchangeable hard metal or pressure moulded elastomer liners. The impellers are made of pressure moulded elastomer liners.The shaft seals for WAJ series can be packing seal, centrifugal seal or mechanical seal.
The discharge branch can be positioned at intervals of 45 degrees by request and oriented to any eight positions to suit installations and applications. There are many drive modes for option, such as V-belt, flexible coupling, gearbox, hydraulic coupler variable frequency, silicon controlled speed, etc. Among them, the flexible shaft coupling drive and V-belt feature of low cost and easy installation.
Advantages of rubber
Natural rubber is an excellent wear material when handling wet sand slurries. Its strength, resilience and cut resistance have a positive impact on the wear performance of slurry pumps.
Rubber is lighter and softer than other wear lining materials. This aids installation because it is easier to lift and install quickly and efficiently. Positive results for the health and safety of workers in the field.
Using rubber as a wear lining material means
Longer maintenance intervals
