The overflow parts of the slurry pump mainly include: impeller, volute and guard plate. The overflow part of the slurry pump is the core accessory of the slurry pump. It is an accessory that is in direct contact with the medium when the slurry pump is running. The quality of these components plays a decisive role in the overall quality of the slurry pump. Replacement and maintenance mainly refers to the replacement and maintenance of the overflow parts of the slurry pump. The quality of the slurry pump is mainly compared with the quality of the overflow parts of the slurry pump, and the main production processes include: casting, heat treatment, and machining.

The function of the slurry pump impeller:

1. The impeller is the part of the slurry pump that does work on the slurry in the overflow parts;

2. The impeller is driven by the pump shaft to rotate in the pump body, so that the slurry can obtain energy;

3. The mechanical energy is transmitted to the slurry through the rotation of the impeller, so that the slurry obtains dynamic pressure energy;

Slurry pump impeller composition: It is composed of four parts: front wheel plate, rear wheel plate, blade and hub.

Classification of slurry pump impellers: closed impeller, semi-open impeller, open impeller.

The role of the slurry pump volute:

1. Accept the liquid removed from the impeller;

2. Convert the kinetic energy of the liquid into pressure;

3. The volute should have sufficient strength and good process characteristics.

Slurry pump guard:

1. Designed for convenient disassembly, assembly and maintenance;

2. It mainly cooperates with the volute to form a slurry flow enclosed space;

3. In most cases, the front guard plate is left with a water inlet, and the rear guard plate is left with a shaft hole;

4. Generally, larger slurry pumps have front and rear guard plates, and small pumps only have one guard plate.
