Skid Mounted Booster Pump

Booster Pumps bolster the effectiveness of the main pumps by allowing you to pump material at long distances without the risk of losing critical line velocity or downstream

Skid Mounted Booster Pump. If you are pumping slurry or viscous material long distances, a booster pump may be needed to increase output.  The EDDY Pump booster pump is ideal for high viscosity and high specific gravity material pumping with significantly less downtime and maintenance issues compared to conventional pumps.  Sizes range from 4-inch up to 10-inch with pumping distances of over 3500 feet and production rates of up to 4000 GPM. Get in touch with our engineering or sales for specific details

All dredges use our industrial pumps, which are non-clog pumps 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 Pump dredges and excavator cutter heads use our patented USA Built industrial pumps.


We are one of the few companies who manufactures both our pumps and dredging equipment to ensure optimal support.

The core of this design is the patented EDDY Pump technology. The design redefines the pumping industry by being the only pump that utilizes the principles of a tornado to create a synchronized eddy current. This pump is not a centrifugal, positive displacement or vortex pump, but instead the most efficient high solids and high specific gravity pump on the market. This translates to the ability to pump higher percent solids of material with less water.

What is a booster pump skid?
A booster pump skid is a compact and portable pumping system that includes a booster pump mounted on a sturdy skid frame. It is designed to increase the pressure or flow rate of fluids in various applications, such as dredging, construction dewatering, and industrial processes.

What is a skid-mounted pump?
A skid-mounted pump refers to a pump unit that is securely mounted on a robust skid frame for easy transportation, installation, and operation. Skid-mounted pumps are commonly used in industries where mobility and versatility are essential, such as construction, mining, and oil and gas.

What is the process of water pump skid?
A process water pump skid is a specialized skid-mounted pump system specifically designed for handling process water in industrial applications. It typically includes a pump, motor, control panel, and piping system, all mounted on a single skid for convenience and efficiency.

What is the purpose of a booster pump?
The primary purpose of a booster pump is to increase the pressure or flow rate of fluids, allowing for more efficient transportation, distribution, or processing. Booster pumps are commonly used to overcome friction losses in pipelines, maintain adequate pressure in water supply systems, and enhance performance in various industrial processes.

How long should a booster pump run?
The runtime of a booster pump depends on factors such as the specific application, desired flow rate, pressure requirements, and operating conditions. In general, booster pumps are designed to operate continuously or intermittently as needed to maintain the desired fluid pressure or flow.
