Taking Care of Slurry Pumps

Centrifugal pumps and slurry pumps are heavy duty equipment that are useful for underwater and submersible purposes. These pumps, however, need maintenance to keep them working.

Don’t Open for General Inspection

Inspecting your equipment is important, but don’t open the pumps for a general inspection unless there is evidence of poor performance, driver overload or disturbing noise.

Examine Impellers

After multiple uses, wear on the impellers may occur. If there is evidence of corrosion, erosion or cavitation, a specially designed impeller may be needed to replace the old one.

Record Inspections/Repairs

A record of all inspections and repairs should be kept. This is important for preventative maintenance and reduces frequent, unnecessary and costly maintenance work.

Although powerful, these pumps need to be maintained. You can purchase slurry pumps from Dragflow North America if you need a couple of new ones.
