Types of Submersible Pumps
Submersible pumps are the industry’s most durable pumps for underwater operations moving solids and liquids. They can withstanding everyday use of processing water, rocks, sand, mud, sludge, slurry, and other abrasive materials. DAE Pumps provides a variety of submersible pumps for mining, dredging, minerals processing, ash pumping, wastewater, dewatering, and pumping chemicals, oil, sludge, paste, and many other applications. We offer light-duty to heavy-duty submersible drainage pumps, submersible sludge pumps, and submersible slurry pumps.
Submersible Drainage Pumps
The submersible drainage pump is built for general dewatering, groundwater, raw water, and construction site use. Construction companies and various municipalities use drainage pumps for removing water from heavily flooded areas and as sump pumps when rainwater or groundwater collects in low-lying and below ground work areas.
DAE Pumps drainage pumps are designed for flexibility and ease of use. Capable of pumping solids up to .5-inches, the durable design is made to move large amounts of water. DAE Pumps drainage pumps handle clean and dirty water with the best performance and efficiency on the market. Our drainage pumps provide powerful performance with minimal maintenance, and their durable body ensures continued use in harsh environments. We offer a variety of drainage pumps in 3-inch, 4-inch, 6-inch, and 10-inch discharge outlets with a horsepower of over 80 HP, and capable of pumping up to 6100 GPM.
Submersible Sludge Pumps
Made to pump thick mud and other similarly viscous mixtures of liquids and solids, submersible sludge pumps are used for moving sludge or light slurry, tank clean-outs, trench and pond cleaning, mining dewatering operations, and various other applications. The sludge pump moves the material that can clog ordinary drainage pumps.
DAE Pumps heavy-duty sludge pumps can move water, but they are made for moving solid material and are built with a high wear resistance inside and out. The high-chrome (55HRC) impellers and base of the pump ensures stability while allowing the passage of large solids. The high-quality components for the mechanical seal guarantees a watertight seal and trouble-free operation. Our submersible sludge pumps move up to 420 GPM and come in multiple sizes and power options. These sturdy sludge pumps provide the reliability you need and the performance you can trust for your dewatering, cleaning, and transferring needs.
Submersible Slurry Pumps
The submersible slurry pump is the catch-all of submersibles. Capable of pumping the most abrasive media with high solids content, the slurry pump is the workhorse for quarries and settling pond operations. These ultimate pumps are used for everything from dewatering to dredging.
DAE Pumps non-clogging submersible slurry pumps provide the ultimate in toughness. They have the largest apertures to facilitate the handling of slurry with the most challenging solids and the high-efficiency high chrome agitator can lift settled solids up to 2.5-inches. The robust design uses heavy-duty bearings to withstand shocks and overloads and a double silicon carbide mechanical seal for duty application. Our slurry pumps are available in 3-inch, 4-inch, and 6-inch models, with the ability to move up to 2112 GPM.
Submersible Sand Pumps
Sand is one of the most abrasive materials for any type of pump to manage. The beating of sand on the impeller, volute, and even the hose cause extreme wear and tear on pump components. The submersible sand pump is designed to minimize the effects of blasting sand. However, over a period of extended time, the submersible sand pumps will show signs of wear on these parts from the constant pounding of sand and will require replacement.
Our submersible sand pump wear components are built with a high chromium iron, an extremely strong alloy that is mainly used in mining, milling, earth-handling, and manufacturing industries which require materials with exceptional wear and corrosion resistance. The exceptional wear resistance of high chromium cast iron is due to the high volume fraction of hard chromium carbides. The toughness of the matrix also contributes to the wear resistance and makes it very suitable for pumping sand.
DAE Pumps non-clogging submersible sand pumps provide the ultimate in toughness and sand pumping capabilities. Our pumps move up to 1664 gallons per minute of material and are available in 3-inch, 4-inch, and 6-inch models.

Selecting a Submersible Pump
Choosing the right submersible pump or submersible pump for the job is essential in efficiently transporting large volumes of water and solids, which effectively saves time and money. Using a submersible pump with the proper flow rate, head, impeller, and agitator expedites the pumping process and ensures hassle-free operation. The size and shape of the head and the discharge outlet determine the flow rate of a pump. The pump head suctions in water, slurry, sludge, sand, and rocks, while the discharge outlet expels out the material.
DAE Pumps submersible drainage pumps use strainer stands to ensure mostly water passes through. The submersible slurry pump comes with an open stand or strainer design, and our submersible slurry pumps have a combined open stand with a strainer. The submersible pumps also have an agitator or impeller to prevent too large of size rocks from entering and clogging the pump. Next, the larger the head and discharge outlet, the more material it can move. A slurry hose connects to the discharge outlet to transport the materials. Because the submersible slurry pump is in water, there is no need to prime the pump, thus providing a very efficient way of moving slurry. Submersible slurry pumps are powered electrically (ESP) or hydraulically (HSP).
Submersible Sludge Pump vs. Submersible Slurry Pump
Sludge and slurry are a combination of a wet mixture of liquids and solids. Their consistency and texture are what differentiate the two, however, there is no defining factor that separates them. Sludge is typically a thicker and soft substance. Slurry on the other hand is thinner and sloppy. The two materials can typically be found in the same type of environment. Sludge and slurry can be found at the bottom of wastewater containers or ponds consisting of thick mud, clay, or wastes containing rocks and sand. These same locations along with lagoons, mine tailing ponds, water containers, and numerous other facilities can also contain the thinner mud, vegetation growth, and other wastes that makeup slurry.
DAE Pumps high-performance submersible pumps are capable of pumping slurry and sludge with ease. The impellers cut through tough debris, and the powerful suction moves the material. There are multiple factors to take into account when determining the right slurry or sludge pump, not just the material. Distance and height needed to pump, along with desired flow rate also contribute to the pump selection process. A custom pump curve from DAE Pumps helps identify the best pump for your needs.
