Flows from 20 gpm to 1750 gpm with heads to 250 ftAn agitator for slurry pump creates a high velocity water stream away from the pump suction, impacts the sand or whatever material in such a way that it gets put in suspension. This creates a fluid / solid mixture around the pump suction that can then be easily pumped. (remember we only have air pressure plus submergence for placing/pushing the material into the pump suction. Solid contents of up to 30 – 40% can be reached. 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.
Flows from 100 gpm to 1050 gpm with heads to 120 ftThe HY 4 S-LD series pump is designed to use in applications requiring settled solids to be put into suspension and pumped with the discharge water. Primary applications include de-silting of ponds, lakes and streams. Other jobs may include filling sand bags to prevent beach erosion, tank and digester cleaning or pumping sediment from caissons. Excellent for controlling sediment around beach slips.
