Any Pump Can Dewater,

But Only The EDDY Pump Can Move Solids That Destroy All Other Pumps

Pump highly viscous materials with low downtime

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.

Dry Prime Capability with Unique Seal Support System 

Most EDDY Pumps are submersible, however, 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 vacuum.

This Video shows a smaller electric 3-Inch EDDY Self-Prime flowing at 400 GPM (2 cu yd) of slurry at distances of 400 ft in under a minute. 

4-inch and 6-inch Diesel Trailer Units are most Popular.

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.

Main Applications:
Mining, Sand/Agg, Sewage/Wastewater, Chemical, Irrigation, Sump Pit Cleanouts, Digester Tanks, Dewatering, and More!

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 will save your project money. Pump size options range from the 2-inch slurry pump, up to a 12-inch option. Our system handles pumping distances over 3500 feet and production rates up to 4000 GPM.

All of our pump and dredging equipment is equipped with our dependable industrial slurry pumps, which are non-clog pumps designed for high solids pumping applications and other tough jobs that require a true workhorse of a pump. Our patented pump technology outperforms all centrifugal, vortex and positive displacement pumps in a variety of the most difficult pumping applications saving your project from downtime, repairs which offers increased ROI over traditional pumps with frequent maintenance issues when dealing with tough slurries and abrasive materials.

The EDDY Self-Priming Pump integrates a vacuum-based priming unit, which allows the EDDY Pump to operate at peak performance without the need to constantly prime the pump. They’re perfect for pumping highly viscous or heavy fluids without blocking the line or breaks in the process. EDDY Pumps require minimal maintenance and come in a wide range of size options to cover any liquid or slurry transfer project. EDDY Pumps are prepared to handle pumping distances over 3,500 feet and production rates up to 4,000 GPM.

The EDDY Pump self-priming pump unit can be run electrically or diesel-driven to fit in all conditions and meet stringent factory and regulatory standards. Also, with no critical tolerances, the non-clog EDDY Pump will last years with little to no maintenance.

Self-Priming Pump = Cost Savings

For example, a recent client in the manufacturing space was paying over $200,000 every year for vacuum truck companies to frequently come out and collect the waste in their sumps. To combat the rising costs, they tried using other pumps but there was a high failure rate because of large debris and abrasive slurries which would clog the pump, creating maintenance and downtime issues.

This was solved with a 2-inch self-priming EDDY Pump for less than 10% of the annual vacuum truck costs!

Pump Applications That Will Benefit From an EDDY Self Priming Pump

Manufacturing: Large pits or sumps collect all the waste, sludge and wash off from the manufacturing processes. This material is often laden with multitudes of chemicals, abrasive debris and solids which can quickly wear down traditional pumps.

Paper/Pulp Production: Concrete sumps and basins are frequently filled with caustic chemicals and chunks of trees and bark as part of the paper manufacturing process.

Oil/Gas/Drilling: Drilling mud pumping and drill cuttings from tanks and waste disposal ponds often need to be cleaned out and removed off-site.

Dewatering: Some of the most common dewatering techniques involve submersible dewatering pumps, siphoning, or using large machinery buckets to catch the water and dump off-site. These techniques are performed when the water that needs to be removed is below the designated discharge area.

Fundamentally, the main motivating factor to switch to a self-priming pump unit is to save on costs. By running some quick numbers, you should be able to quickly determine if your company can save money by converting existing systems to a self-priming unit.
