Self Priming Pump - Trailer Mounted

Trailer, Skid or Truck mounted self-priming pump setup. Buy or Rent.

Self Priming Pump with Trailer Mounted Option. 

This self-priming pump incorporates a vacuum assisted priming unit, which then allows the EDDY Pump to take full force.  This fills the pump with slurry or target material, then allowing for the main EDDY Pump to work.

Most EDDY Pumps are submersible, with a self-priming unit, the pump and power unit are not submerged. The suction house goes into the slurry and the unit acts like a super sized wet dry vacuum.

An ideal system for pumping the most viscous and heavy materials without clogging or having significant downtime. Lower downtime and maintenance issues versus conventional centrifugal or positive displacement pumps saves your project money.  Pump size options range from the 4-inch slurry pump, up to a 10-inch option. Our system handles pumping distances over 3500 feet and production rates up to 4000 GPM.

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 dredge equipment and excavator cutter heads use our proven USA Built industrial slurry pumps.


Self Priming Pump Trailer or Skid Mount

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 highly efficient high solids and high specific gravity pump on the market. This translates to the ability to pump higher percent solids of material and capture the heavy specific gravity gold.
