Centrifugal Slurry Pumps
Centrifugal slurry pumps are among the most common type of pumps found in industrial applications. A centrifugal pump contains one or more impellers that move fluid by rotation using centrifugal force. Not all centrifugal slurry pumps are the same. Many low-quality centrifugal pumps can only pump water. Their casing and impellers will only allow for this. The industrial centrifugal pump or the centrifugal slurry pumps are much more robust. They are built with heavy-duty materials that can withstand abrasive and corrosive materials. The main intent of a centrifugal slurry pump is to move solids and liquids. The durability of the centrifugal slurry pumps allows them to be used for a wide range of industries and are preferred for low viscosity liquids and high flow rates.
DAE Pumps provides a variety of centrifugal slurry pumps in multiple shapes and sizes. These industrial centrifugal pumps can process heavy abrasive solids and work through everything that would normally shut down other pumps. They are used for a variety of applications in mining, pulp & paper, agriculture, construction, oil & gas, agriculture, and many other industries. We offer dredge pumps, submersible slurry pumps, self-priming pumps, and flooded suction pumps for an extensive variety of uses.

Centrifugal Slurry Pump Applications
DAE Pumps dredging equipment is ideal for a variety of applications, including dredging dams, ports, marinas, rivers, canals, lakes, ponds, and more. Ensuring water quality and capacity are essential in hydroelectric and water supply dams, making DAE Pumps dredge pumps perfect for removing excess sand and silt. Clearing sediment and contaminates from riverbeds, channels, canals, and oceans help restore safe navigation and shoreline formations, and dredging lakes and ponds clean and remove contaminants and tailing. As ocean currents move sediments, the seafloor slowly rises, lowering the depth of marinas and ports. Dredging ensures safe access for boats and other water vessels.

How Centrifugal Pumps Work
What is NPSH
DAE Pumps provides custom pump curves per the information you provide. Including as much information about the project allow us to best match a pump with your needs, so the centrifugal pump you get is ideal for the project.
What is Cavitation in Pumps
Water can turn from a liquid state into steam or gas and boils at around 100 degrees Celsius at sea level. However, at a higher elevation, water boils at a lower temperature because of atmospheric pressure. If this pressure is less than the vapor pressure of the liquid that is pumping, then the water can reach a boiling point. When this happens, cavitation occurs.
During cavitation, air particles within the water expand, and as they reach the boiling point, they collapse in on themselves very rapidly. As they collapse, they start to damage the impeller and pump casing. This damage removes small parts of metal from the surface, and if this keeps occurring, then it will eventually destroy the pump. Therefore, you must ensure the Available pressure is higher than the Required pressure of the pump.
Custom Pump Curve
Guarantee the right pump size and power for the job with a free DAE Pumps custom pump curve for your centrifugal slurry pumps that graphically represents the pump’s flow rate of a specific head based on your exact requirements. Using a pump curve that is specific for your application will greatly help in selecting the pump best for you, ultimately saving you time and money.
Pump curves are developed from data gathered during testing of the pump’s performance at the manufacturer’s facility and provide the end-user with a graph of how the pump will operate over a set range. To build the pump curve, our engineers compile several variables, including the type of material, fluid viscosity, distance to pump, target GPM, and job-specific factors. This ensures the most efficient pump is recommended for your project. Contact a DAE Pumps representative today!
