Flooded Suction Pumps

Industrial non-clog flooded suction pumps engineered for dredging, process pumping applications, highly viscous or abrasive material, sludge, muck, paste, high solids and abrasive applications.

Learn Why Our Flooded Suction Pumps Have Higher Production and More Uptime

Our flooded suction pumps are specially designed to handle heavy-duty industrial and commercial applications. With its unique design, the pumps allow for continuous operation even when the liquid level is not always constant. This makes it suitable for handling fluids with a high percentage of solids and high abrasives.

The adjustable size, ultra recessed rotor can pass the largest material in the industry, ensuring maximum uptime when pumping large solids.

Our flooded suction pumps are made of durable materials that can withstand harsh conditions, such as high temperature and pressure. This ensures a long service life and minimal maintenance.

The pumps are also highly customizable, with a variety of options available to suit your specific needs. Whether you require a high flow rate, a high head, or a combination of both, our team of experts can work with you to create a pump that meets your requirements.

Horizontal VS Vertical Flooded Suction Pump: Which Should You Choose?

When choosing between horizontal and vertical slurry pump mounting configurations, some main factors to consider include the type of slurry being pumped, the required flow rate and pressure, the distance the slurry needs to be pumped, and the available power source. In addition, the operating environment should be taken into account when selecting a slurry pump. This includes the temperature and pH of the slurry, as well as any potential corrosion or erosion that may occur. Choosing a pump with materials that are resistant to these factors will help to ensure its longevity and reliability.

Horizontal Flooded Suction Pump

  • Easier to install and maintain, due to quick access to pump components allows for easy repair jobs.
  • Can typically fit a larger impeller, increasing flow rates.
  • Lower NPSH requirements than a vertical setup.
  • Requires more room, due to its larger footprint compared to vertical.

Vertical Flooded Suction Pump

  • Less smaller footprint, allowing it to be implemented in hard to reach jobs.
  • Better performance where higher head is needed.
  • More versatile, can be cable hung straight down and inserted directly into medium to pump target material.
  • More difficult to repair and tougher maintenance.

Why EDDY Solids Handling Pumps are Better

High End Seal Support System
– Explained.


Pass solids from 1-12 inches (rocks, rags, debris). 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 4″ EDDY Pump easily allows the passage of a man’s arm (*see picture below). Compared with the tolerance in a centrifugal pump, the EDDY Pump easily wins. Pump Range spans 1-inch through 12-inch EDDY Pump line, 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 Here.
