Slurry pumps can be divided into horizontal slurry pumps and vertical slurry pumps based on whether the relative position of the shaft and the horizontal plane is vertical during operation. When the pump shaft of the slurry pump is perpendicular to the horizontal position during operation, it is a vertical slurry pump. The parallel position is the horizontal slurry pump.

What is a Horizontal Slurry Pump

Slurry pumps can be divided into horizontal slurry pumps and vertical slurry pumps based on whether the relative position of the shaft and the horizontal plane is vertical during operation. When the pump shaft of the slurry pump is perpendicular to the horizontal position during operation, it is a vertical slurry pump. The parallel position is the horizontal slurry pump.

Working principle of horizontal slurry pump

The horizontal slurry pump is a centrifugal slurry pump. Its working and design principles are based on the centrifugal pump; so its working principle is: relying on the action of the rotating impeller on the liquid to transfer the mechanical energy of the prime mover to the liquid.

As the liquid flows from the impeller inlet to the outlet, its velocity energy and pressure energy are both increased. When the liquid discharged by the impeller passes through the discharge chamber, most of its velocity energy is converted into pressure energy and then transported out along the discharge pipe. This When the liquid is discharged, a vacuum or low pressure is formed at the impeller inlet. The liquid in the liquid pool at the suction inlet is forced into the impeller inlet under the action of the liquid surface pressure (atmospheric pressure). As a result, the rotating impeller continuously rotates. Aspirate and expel fluids.

Structure and composition of horizontal slurry pump

Horizontal slurry pumps are generally mainly composed of: impeller, volute, guard plate, pump body, pump cover, shaft seal assembly, bearing assembly, shaft, and bracket.

You can see that its axis is parallel to the horizontal position.

1. The impeller of the horizontal slurry pump is the main component of the slurry pump and is the main accessory that performs work on the slurry during operation;

2. The function of the slurry pump shaft is to transmit torque and rotate the impeller, mainly to transmit the power of the prime mover to the impeller;

3. The volute and the guard plate mainly form a sealed chamber, which can guide the slurry to the discharge port;

4. The bracket and base mainly play a supporting and fixing role to enable the slurry pump to operate stably;

5. The shaft seal part is an essential part of the horizontal slurry pump. There are generally three forms. However, the shaft seal part does not exist in the vertical slurry pump.
