Horizontal slurry pumps are indispensable in moving abrasive and corrosive liquids efficiently. These pumps are designed to handle liquids containing solid particles, making them the right choice in various industries such as mining, construction, and wastewater treatment. Here below you’ll find all the Pemo horizontal slurry pumps, while in the news section we go deeper into the definition, types, uses, and advantages of horizontal slurry pumps.
Pemo horizontal slurry pumps
Pemo’s horizontal slurry pumps are specifically designed for specific industry and purpose, we can build it in the V-Belt and Direct Transmission versions. All the Pemo horizontal pumps have the sealing system that consists of mechanical seals, with faces that are made of Tungsten Carbide (widia) or of Silicium Carbide. Lubrication of the mechanical seals, when there is a pair per pump, can be made with flushing water at a determined pressure, depending on the version, or with water/glicole by means of different closed circuits with natural or forced circulation. Instead, lubrication of the bearings is made with grease or oil.
Pemo Pumps models
Pemo Pumps has three different series of horizontal sludge pumps:
AO-AO/AD Series are standard horizontal pumps with frontal inlet. Based on our standards, the maximum available pressure should never exceed 2 bar (29 psi). Since there is only one
mechanical seals these models are used to pump only water like fluids with almost no abrasive particles.
AO/TD – AO/TD/AD Series are horizontal pumps with frontal inlet and double mechanical seals, flushing must be done at a pressure that must be about 1 bar (15 psi) higher than the slurry outlet pressure. They can be used to pump abrasive and/or acid liquids. Maximum outlet pressure should not exceed 3-4 bar (45 – 60 PSI). Designed for heavy duty slurry and/or acid applications, these pumps have capacities from 1 to 1500 m3/h (5 to 6613 gpm).
AO/AB – AO/AB/AD Series are one of the most popular and distinctive products of the Pemo Pumps range. Thanks to the side inlet, the maximum pressure that the mechanical seals see is the fluid inlet pressure, greatly increasing life expectancy. For this reason, flushing must be done at a pressure that must be about 1 bar (15 psi) higher than the slurry inlet pressure instead. When pumping acid liquids, the shaft and the mechanical seals chamber can be made of special alloys.
Designed for slurries and/or acid applications, these Pemo pumps are truly unique! Maximum particle size is 2 mm though this is dependent on the specific application, capacities are from 1 to 900 m3/h (5 to 3,968 gpm), and maximum discharge head is 90 m (295 ft) in the Hardalloy PEMO design.
These are the primary markets where Pemo horizontal slurry pumps are used, we also can provide to our clients references and case studies.
Mining, Quarries, and Mineral Extraction
Industrial Wastewater Treatment.
AO/TI and AO/TD Series, main characteristics
- Designed for heavy duty slurry and/or acid applications.
- These are end suction slurry pumps with single or double mechanical seals.
- Capacities from 1 to 1500 m3/h (5 to 6613 gpm).
- Usually maximum discharge pressure should not exceed 3 bar or 43 psi.
AO/AB Series, main characteristics
- Designed for slurries and/or acid applications.
- The heart of the PEMO product line, the AO/AB Series pumps are truly unique. Due to the side inlet, the maximum pressure the mechanical seal will see is the fluid inlet pressure, greatly increasing life of the seal.
- When pumping acid liquids, the shaft and the mechanical seal housing can be made of special alloys.
- Maximum particle size is 2 mm though this is dependent on the specific application.
- Capacities from 1 to 900 m3/h (5 to 3,968 gpm).
- Maximum discharge head is 90 m (295 ft) in the Hardalloy PEMO design.
