Reliable & Efficient Slurry Pumps

Proudly Distributed To The Australian Industry By Hydro Innovations

Reliable Low Volume Slurry Pumps

Hydro Innovations does not have high volume slurry pumps. What we do have is some very high quality pumps if flow rates are less than 20 litres per second.

Ragazzini’s “Rotho” peristaltic pump and the Gorman-Rupp “Sludge Kat” are both high quality pumps with features that deliver longevity and performance.

The Rotho Peristaltic Pump can be employed to transfer abrasive and very acidic sludge and slurries. When pumping these highly aggressive high temperature components with suspended solid contents, the Rotho Peristaltic Pump offers unrivalled performance.

The Sludge Kat is the choice when moisture content is low and the product is thick. It has uses in fly-ash disposal, cement plants, oil and gas drilling, mine tailings, environmental clean-up, or wherever the tough slurry pumping applications are.

Ragazzini Peristaltic Pumps

The Ragazzini Rotho peristaltic pump is ideal for pumping slurry. It creates high vacuum, so can get the fluid moving, and can operate on suction lift applications. Solid particles and abrasive fluids can be handled, making the pump durable and versatile.

The pumps do not have valves or seals to clog, repair or replace, which makes them super reliable and easy to maintain. The pumped fluid does not come in contact with the mechanical moving parts, as only the flanges and the tubular element [hose] are in contact with the pumped media.

Thanks to the operating principle of the pump, it can run dry without damage, and because rollers are used, there is no messy and expensive fluid needed in the pump casing, and pumps can be equipped with leak detectors to alert operators of the need to change a hose. The optional “retractable roller system” can make the operator’s life even easier by simplifying hose changes, and it can also lengthen the life of the hose.

Gorman-Rupp Sludge Kat

The Gorman-Rupp SludgeKat® is a hydraulically drive positive displacement piston pump, powered by a liquid cooled diesel engine, designed to tackle the toughest pumping applications. It is equipped with 100mm ports and capable of flows to 850 litres per minute.

This pump can handle very viscous fluids, and is capable of passing solids up to 60mm in diameter. It can produce pressures to 118 metres.

The Sludge Kat is built to the same exacting standards as other Gorman-Rupp products. Chrome-plated steel cylinders provide extended service life, wiper seal and U-ring design along with four independent anti-clog ball check valves provide superior sealing, and victaulic coupled joints provide ease of cleaning and service.
