Slurry is a mixture of solids and liquid, generally water. The particles can be both abrasive & nonabrasive, although abrasive particles are very much common. The purpose to move slurry can be transporting as much solids particles as possible, hydraulically, along with the given liquid. There are many factors to be considered while selecting a slurry pump like; Particle size- Specific gravity of solids, Specific gravity of liquid, Concentration of slurry, Shape of particles etc. Slurry can be further classified in to two types – 1. Non – Settling Slurry & 2. Settling Slurry.
In case of slurry pumping, it is important to note that standard pump selection fundamentals might not stand true. Having set – rigid solutions for all type of slurries is just an eye wash.
