The EDDY Pump vs Centrifugal Pump
The 5-Inch heavy-duty slurry pump by EDDY Pump. Close coupled or flex coupled version pumps available in extra heavy-duty (HD) class. Depending on your needs, all of our pumps can be setup horizontal or vertical.
Our industrial pumps are non-clog pumps with no critical tolerances designed for high solids pumping applications. Our patented pump technology outperforms all centrifugal, vortex and positive displacement pumps in a variety of the most difficult pumping applications.
All EDDY Pumps can be mounted vertical or horizontal.
In harsh conditions with sand, sludge, rocks, slurry, normal dredge pumps clog, wear and fail more often. This leads to downtime for maintenance, hurting your bottom line. This is not the case with EDDY Pump since we have the tolerance to pump objects up to 12 inches!
The EDDY Pump’s open rotor design with high tolerances allow anything that will go into the intake to be passed through the discharge without issues. Tolerance between the rotor and the volute in the 5″ EDDY Pump easily allows the passage of a man’s arm, while the tolerance in a centrifugal pump is significantly less. In a 2-inch to 12-inch EDDY Pump the tolerance ranges from 1-12 inches.
This translates to a significant amount of solids and debris pass through, without clogging the pump. To learn more about the technology behind our pumps continue reading more HERE.
The Best Non-Clog and High Solids Industrial Pump on the Market. Since 1984.
Best Applications: If you are pumping high solids, slurry, extremely viscous material, high abrasives (sand & gravel) and material filled with solids then you found the ideal pump for your job.
Industries Most Served: Mining, Oil and Fracking, Waste Water, Paper/Pulp, Chemical, Energy, Water Districts, Irrigation Districts and Dredging Companies.
EDDY Pump Deployment Options
The fluid to be pumped with flooded suction pumps is positioned above the pump. With the pump placed below, gravity can feed the liquid into the pump's suction and keep the pump primed.
Pumps that are completely submerged in the liquid are called submersible pumps. By being immersed in the fluid to be pumped, there is no need for priming the pump.
With a self-priming unit, the pump and power unit are not submerged. The suction hose goes into the slurry, and the unit acts like a super-sized wet dry vacuum. It can be trailer mounted for added mobility.
