Sump Pump & Slurry Pump, What Are the Differences Between Them?



The slurry pump and the sump pump are both tools that use strong pressure to transfer mud or sewage. They are indispensable equipment for engineering production and environmental departments, but they also have some differences. As a slurry pump supplier, I’d like to share it with you.

The Sump Pump

The sump pump is a kind of centrifugal impurity equipment and has many forms: submersible and dry. It is mainly used to transport urban sewage, feces or liquids containing fibers. Solid particles such as paper scraps. Because the conveyed medium contains fibers that are easy to entangle or bunch. Therefore, the flow channel of this kind of pump is easy to be blocked. Once the pump is blocked, the pump will not work normally, and even the motor will be burned, which will cause poor sewage discharge, which will have a serious impact on urban life and environmental protection. Therefore, blocking resistance and reliability are important factors for the pros and cons of the sump pump. The sump pump is mainly used for the treatment of industrial sewage and domestic sewage, and has played a great role in environmental protection. Among them, the sump pump also has a submersible pump with a cutting wheel, so that the submersible pump can chop up the dirt and then pump the sewage clean.

The Slurry Pump

The slurry pump has no cutting impeller and is mainly used to pump mud. The slurry pump refers to a machine that transports flushing fluid such as mud or water into the borehole during drilling. The slurry pump is an important part of drilling equipment. The two main performance parameters of the slurry pump are displacement and pressure. The displacement is calculated by discharging several liters per minute, which is related to the diameter of the hole and the required speed of the flushing fluid from the bottom of the hole, that is, the larger the hole diameter, the larger the required displacement. The up-and-back speed of the flushing fluid is required to flush the cuttings and rock dust cut by the drill bit away from the bottom of the hole in time, and reliably carry it to the surface. Through drilling and extraction, the mud under the ground can be obtained.
The slurry pump can be widely used in mining, electric power, metallurgy, coal, environmental protection and other industries to transport slurry containing abrasive solid particles. Such as mine slurry transportation, thermal power plant hydraulic ash removal, coal washing plant coal slurry and heavy medium transportation, river dredging, river dredging, etc. In the chemical industry, some corrosive slurry containing crystals can also be transported.
