Pumping Contaminated Soil with Slurrypro


SlurryPro Application

SlurryPro Application - Customer Case Study



On a remote site in regional Queensland, the challenge is to transfer contaminated soil with solids and rocks up to 10-12mm in size. The customer was originally using vacuum trucks but this become an ongoing costly expense. They required the pump to be single phase.

We originally looked at using a peristaltic hose pump but they would have needed a very large pump to handle the solid size, which did not fit the customer's budget. The customer was offered a stainless steel pump by an alternative supplier, but this would have been too costly to maintain and repair. We selected a SlurryPro centrifugal slurry pump with hard metal liners due to the heavy duty design and ease of maintainance, which also enabled budget savings for the customer.

Product supplied
Heavy duty centrifugal slurry pump with:

  • Hard metal liners and impeller
  • Gland pack seal
  • SKF bearings
  • Belt driven by a 3kW single phase electric motor running at 1611rpm
  • Mounted on a common base plate with guards

Watch this space - we will report on the outcomes gained by the customer once the pump is installed and operational. Note that the customer and site location will remain confidential.
