Galveston Series Submersible Sludge & Slurry Pumps

The DAE Pumps Galveston series submersible sludge and slurry pumps offer the latest in submersible pump technology. The Galveston series of 4-inch, 6-inch, and 8-inch centrifugal pumps provide up to 75 horsepower for transferring solids, muck, sand, and other materials as large as 2.5-inches, up to 2,112 GPM. These powerful pumps move material through a combined open and strainer stand design.

Selecting a Submersible Pump

Choosing the right submersible slurry pump or submersible sludge pump for the job is essential in efficiently transporting large volumes of materials, which effectively saves time and money. Using a submersible slurry 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 slurry pump. The pump head suctions in slurry, sludge, sand, and rocks, while the discharge outlet expels out the material.

DAE Pumps 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 make them different, but at no point is there an exact consistency that makes one or the other. Where they differ is in the thickness of the material. Sludge is a much thicker substance and is typically soft. Slurry on-the-other-hand is thinner and sloppy. Even though sludge is a thicker material than slurry, they both can consist of the same types of solids that have different shapes, sizes, and abrasiveness.

Both slurry and sludge contain liquids and solids that make up their consistency, and they are in many of the same types of locations. Sludge can be material at the bottom of a wastewater container or pond consisting of thick mud, clay, or wastes also containing rocks and sand. The same wastewater treatment plant can have tanks containing less dense slurry. The slurry can be in lagoons and mine tailings ponds, as mud, vegetation growth, and other wastes.

Knowing what materials you intend to pump is one of many criteria in identifying the best pump for your project. All DAE Pumps high-performance submersible pumps are capable of pumping slurry with ease. The impellers cut through tough debris, and the powerful suction pumps out the material. Our submersible sludge pumps are higher horsepower systems that are more powerful at suctioning the thicker sludge and can move more material at larger volumes. A DAE Pumps representative can provide you with knowledge, experience, and a custom pump curve to identify the ideal pump for your needs.

Main Applications of Submersible Slurry Pumps

Submersible slurry pumps are used in a variety of applications: Mining, Wastewater, Dredging, Slurry, Sludge, Paper/Pulp, Chemical, Oil, Coal Ash, Fly Ash Pumping, Barge Offloading, and many more.

DAE Pumps Submersible Slurry Pumps

3-Inch Submersible Pumps

The low-cost 3-inch submersible pumps provide power and speed for transporting liquids and light materials through a 3-inch discharge valve. The DAE Pumps 3-inch submersible pumps allow the most abrasive solids and sludge up to 1-inch in diameter to pass. We manufacture a couple of versions of the 3-inch pump that offer the same rugged construction body, head, motor, and watertight seals as all our models. Options include an open stand or a strainer with an agitator for suctioning materials. DAE Pumps 3-inch submersible pumps will transport sand, sludge, and rock up to 449 GPM at 7.5 HP.

See our 3-inch submersible pump models: Tampa 337 and Tampa 355.

4-Inch Submersible Pumps

More efficient 4-inch submersible pumps provide higher power and speed for transporting liquids and materials. DAE Pumps manufactures a few more versions of the 4-inch pump with the same rugged construction body, head, motor, and all-important watertight seals. 4-inch submersible pumps allow for larger sizes of abrasive solids and sludge up to 1.5-inch in diameter to pass through the 4-inch discharge valve.
