Methods to Extend the Service Life of Slurry Pumps

The correct selection of slurry pump can effectively extend the service life

 

Reasonable product selection: including the wear-resistant properties of materials used in flow-passing parts and other manufacturing qualities of the pump. In the selection and design, the above factors must be taken into consideration to make a reasonable selection of the slurry pump.

 

Arrangement of slurry pump: In the arrangement of slurry pump, the cavitation allowance of the pump should be considered to minimize the loss of the suction pipeline.

 

The design flow rate of the slurry pump should be as small as possible: due to the flow of slurry in the pump body, the slurry will impact and rub the wear-bearing parts in the slurry pump body, resulting in wear of the wear-bearing parts. Obviously, for the same slurry and flow rate, the slower the flow rate of the slurry, the slower the wear rate of the wear-bearing parts of the pump, and the longer the service life of the pump.

 

The lower the pump speed, the better: because the lower the pump speed, the lower the relative speed of the slurry pump impeller and the slurry, that is, the lower the relative speed with the ore particles, so the wear rate of the slurry pump impeller is Also slower. In addition, different slurry pumps must achieve the same flow rate. Generally, when the impeller diameter is large, the rotation speed is low, and when the impeller diameter is small, the rotation speed is high.
