Grindex slurry pumps are designed for use in quarries, mines, dredging, cleaning of settling ponds, other abrasive and other applications and industries that require pumps with very high durability. Each part of the BRAVO pump is designed for maximum endurance and reliability – an absolute must when pumping slurry. All BRAVO pumps can handle liquids with pH values from 5.5 up to 14.
The Bravo 400 to 900 are equipped with agitator beneath the pump intake to stir up settled material toward the pump intake. The Bravo 400 to 900 can also be fitted with an optional cooling jacket for use in dry pit applications.
Pumping fluids with high solids concentrations is more complicated than pumping water. To avoid sedimentation in the system you need to choose the right pump size and dimensions of hoses and pipes. The concentration of solids together with their size and shape may also affect pump performance and power requirements and therefore pump choice. Remember that settled solids might need external agitators, water jets or mixers to get them back in suspension and allow them to be pumped.
As each application requires its own calculation, we recommend you to contact your Grindex dealer for more information about slurry pumping.
