What are the Problems Caused by the Wear of the Slurry Pump?

Jan. 29, 2021

As a Hydraulic Slurry Pump Manufacturer, share with you.

The slurry pump will wear out for a long time. If the wear is serious, it will cause some problems in the work. If the parts in the flow part of the slurry pump are seriously worn out, there will be some problems:

1. Affect work efficiency. Due to the mutual wear between the impeller and the pump body, the internal volume efficiency of the pump gradually decreases, and the flow surface becomes uneven with the increase of wear, which seriously affects the working efficiency of the centrifugal slurry pump.

2. Increased maintenance time. Due to the increasing degree of wear and tear in the slurry pump, regular maintenance can no longer guarantee the normal operation of the slurry pump, resulting in a significant increase in the number of maintenance, and the maintenance work will gradually lengthen.

3. Reduced the running quality. The abrasion caused by the flow surface of the slurry pump results in unevenness and promotes the development of local disturbance and cavitation of the water flow. Asymmetric wear of the impeller will cause mechanical imbalance. These reasons will increase the vibration of the centrifugal pump, shorten the life of the bearing and mechanical seal, and reduce the quality of operation.

Slurry pumps are often used in coal mines, electric power, and seawater sand selection industries. They are widely used in these industries. Let's understand them together.

Slurry pumps are in the power industry, mainly thermal power plants. In thermal power plants, because a large amount of coal is used for power generation, the slag or ash after coal combustion needs to be removed. The slurry pump is used to remove the ash and slag. After mixing a certain amount of water, the slag is removed by the slurry pump. It is transported to the place where the ash is piled, so sometimes the slurry pump also becomes the ash pump in the power plant.

In the coal washing industry, due to different working conditions, larger coal lump and coal gangue are easy to block, and the design requirements for slurry pumps are very high.

In the field of seawater sand selection, the application of slurry pumps has gradually been recognized by customers. However, when sand is selected in seawater and sand is dug in rivers, slurry pumps are more easily called sand pumps or dredging pumps. Although they are called differently, they can all be called slurry pumps in terms of structural characteristics and pump performance principles. Therefore, in this seawater sand selection, we are often called sand pumps, and used to call dredging pumps in river dredging.
