– 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.

Frequently Asked Questions – Submersible Pumps

What is a Submersible Slurry Pump and How Does It Work?

A submersible slurry pump is a type of pump specifically designed for pumping abrasive and high-viscosity fluids, such as slurry, mud, and sand, from underwater environments. It operates by submerging the pump assembly directly into the fluid, allowing it to efficiently transport solids-laden slurries to the surface.

What Are the Key Features of Submersible Slurry Pumps?

Key features of submersible slurry pumps include:

        • Robust Construction: Built with durable materials such as high-chrome alloy and hardened steel to withstand abrasive and corrosive environments.
        • Submersible Design: Submerged operation eliminates the need for priming and ensures efficient pumping of heavy slurries without cavitation.
        • Agitator Mechanism: Some models feature an integrated agitator to break up solids and prevent clogging, improving overall pump performance.
        • High Efficiency: Designed for high efficiency and minimal energy consumption, reducing operating costs and increasing productivity.
        • Seal Options: Offered with various sealing options, including mechanical seals and lip seals, to prevent leakage and prolong pump life.

How Do I Select the Right Submersible Slurry Pump for My Application?
When selecting a submersible slurry pump, consider factors such as:

      • Flow Rate and Head: Determine the required flow rate and head pressure based on the specific application and pumping distance.
      • Solids Handling Capacity: Choose a pump with sufficient solids handling capacity to handle the size and concentration of solids in the slurry.
      • Material Compatibility: Ensure the pump materials are compatible with the fluid being pumped to prevent corrosion and wear.
      • Installation Environment: Consider the depth of submersion, temperature, pH, and other environmental factors to select a pump that can operate reliably in the intended conditions.

    Can Submersible Slurry Pumps Handle Corrosive Fluids?

    Yes, many submersible slurry pumps are designed to handle corrosive fluids by using materials such as stainless steel, duplex stainless steel, or high-chrome alloy for pump components. It’s essential to select a pump with materials that are compatible with the specific corrosive properties of the fluid being pumped.

    What is a submersible pump used for?

    Submersible pumps are primarily used for pumping water or other liquids from wells, boreholes, reservoirs, and other submerged sources. They are commonly employed in applications such as residential water supply, irrigation, drainage, sewage systems, and groundwater pumping.

    What is the major disadvantage of a submersible pump?

    One of the major disadvantages of submersible pumps is the potential for damage due to overheating when operated in dry conditions. Since they are designed to be submerged in water during operation, running a submersible pump without sufficient liquid can lead to overheating and motor failure.

    What is the difference between a submersible pump and a normal pump?

    The main difference between a submersible pump and a normal pump lies in their installation and operating environment. Submersible pumps are designed to be submerged underwater during operation, while normal pumps are installed above the water level. Submersible pumps are more compact, efficient, and suitable for submerged applications, whereas normal pumps are typically used for above-ground pumping.

    How long can a submersible pump stay underwater?

    The duration that a submersible pump can stay underwater depends on factors such as the pump’s design, materials, and operating conditions. However, submersible pumps are typically designed to operate continuously underwater for extended periods without overheating or sustaining damage.

    How deep can a submersible pump work?

    Submersible pumps can work at various depths depending on their design and specifications. Some models are capable of operating at depths of several hundred feet or more, while others are suitable for shallower depths. The specific depth capabilities of a submersible pump should be provided by the manufacturer.

    What is the alternative to a submersible pump?

    Alternatives to submersible pumps include centrifugal pumps, jet pumps, and surface-mounted pumps. These pumps are installed above ground and are suitable for applications where submersion is not feasible or required.

    Why do submersible pumps fail?

    Submersible pumps can fail due to various reasons, including motor burnout caused by dry running, mechanical seal failure, corrosion of pump components, blockages in the impeller or intake, electrical issues, and excessive wear and tear from prolonged use.

    How many horsepower (HP) submersible pump do I need?

    The required horsepower of a submersible pump depends on factors such as the desired flow rate, total dynamic head (TDH) or lift height, pipe diameter, and fluid properties. Consulting with a pump expert at Eddy Pump or using pump sizing calculators can help determine the appropriate horsepower for your specific application.

    How do I know what size submersible pump I need?

    Determining the size of a submersible pump involves considering factors such as the desired flow rate, total dynamic head (TDH), pipe diameter, depth to water level, and friction losses in the piping system. Pump manufacturers often provide sizing guides or calculators to help select the right pump size for a given application.

    How high can a submersible pump pump water?

    The maximum pumping height, or total dynamic head (TDH), of a submersible pump depends on factors such as the pump’s design, horsepower, and efficiency, as well as the properties of the fluid being pumped. Submersible pumps are capable of pumping water to significant heights, with some models able to achieve TDH values of hundreds of feet or more.

    How many hours can a submersible pump run continuously?

    The continuous runtime of a submersible pump depends on factors such as the pump’s design, construction, operating conditions, and maintenance practices. Well-designed and properly maintained submersible pumps can run continuously for extended periods without issues, but it’s essential to follow manufacturer recommendations for maintenance and monitoring.

    How do I know if my submersible pump is bad?

    Signs of a failing submersible pump may include reduced flow or pressure, unusual noises such as grinding or rattling, overheating, frequent cycling on and off, or complete failure to operate. If you suspect your submersible pump is malfunctioning, it’s advisable to consult with a qualified pump technician for diagnosis and repair.
