Tobee® manufacturers Rubber lined slurry pumps are a type of centrifugal pump that are specifically designed to handle abrasive and corrosive slurries. They feature a rubber lining on the internal wetted parts of the pump, such as the impeller, volute casing, and suction liner. This rubber lining provides excellent resistance to wear and corrosion, making rubber lined slurry pumps ideal for applications where the pumped media contains solids and is chemically aggressive or small fine sand without sharp end like silica sand.
Tobee® Pump Rubber Material Selection: The wetted parts of rubber lined slurry pumps are typically lined with natural rubber or synthetic rubbers such as ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), butyl rubber , polyurethane (PU), and others. Different rubber materials offer varying degrees of chemical resistance and wear resistance, so the choice of rubber material depends on the specific media the pump will handle.
Tobee® Rubber Slurry Pump Specialized Applications: Rubber lined slurry pumps are also used in specialized applications such as acid pickling in the chemical industry, phosphoric acid production, leaching in mining and metallurgical industry, and treatment of acidic wastewater in metal smelting processes. These applications often involve highly corrosive and abrasive media, and rubber lined slurry pumps offer reliable performance under these harsh conditions.
Rubber Slurry Pump Operational Considerations: When using rubber lined slurry pumps, there are several operational considerations to keep in mind. First, avoid dry running to ensure that the rubber lining does not experience unnecessary wear. Second, promptly replace heavily worn rubber linings to maintain pump performance. Additionally, regular cleaning of the pump and flushing out any residue helps prevent blockages and corrosion.
