NEW Eddy Pump vs Centrifugal Pump Explained. How this Dredge & Slurry Pump WorksEddy Pump versus Centrifugal Pump.
How our slurry and dredge pumps work to save you time and money.
The Eddy pump is not a centrifugal, vortex, or positive displacement pump, but a pump harnessing the fluid dynamics of an eddy current. This enables the Eddy
pump to outperform traditional pumps in the following pumping conditions:
Eddy pump's open rotor design promotes passage of large rocks debris rags and other fibrous materials that clog conventional pumps.
Eddy pump's turbid flow agitates the material while feeding it into the suction and allowing for higher viscous material pumping.
High Solids -
Eddy pump's hydrodynamic principles allow for the transportation of a higher concentration of solids with less free water. This saves your project money.
Higher Specific Gravity
Eddy pump's strong eddy currents readily draw heavy materials up into the pump and conveys them out the discharge.
High Corrosive and Abrasive
Eddy pump's performance does not rely on critical tolerances which allows for highly corrosive and abrasive material pumping with little or no performance loss or maintenance cost overtime.
Eddy pump's design enables it to be easily configured for specific head and flow requirements by simply changing the rotor.
Eddy pump's benefits can be realized in its higher performance and lower total lifecycle cost. This is seen through the eddy pumps ability to outperform traditional pumps in resistance to clogging and ability to pump high viscosity, high specific gravity, and high corrosive abrasive slurries. This coupled with the flexibility of varying rotor options makes it the most premier pump on the Market.
Your projects finish faster and have less water to deal with. Increased production and cost savings mean your clients will be happier.

Slurry Pump Selection Overview
The purpose of this article is to provide an understanding of the important considerations for selecting a slurry pump for your application. There are many factors and considerations to ensuring the pump that your purchase is appropriately suited for your application needs. Proper pump sizing, motor power, performance requirements, slurry characteristics, and discharge head requirements are only a few of the things that must be factored into the slurry pump selection process.
What is a Slurry Pump
There are many different types of pumps available, and most pumps are designed for a specific purpose or type of application. Pumps that are designed to transfer thin fluids are different from pumps that are designed for thick, solid-laden, abrasive, heavy materials. Due to the difference in pump design between different types of pumps it is very important that the most appropriate pump be selected for your slurry application.
Slurry pumps are designed for pumping thick materials that can consist of such things as slurries, sand, gravel, mud, crushed rock, muck, manure, and many other highly viscous materials. Typically, a slurry is a mixture of a given material such as crushed rock and water. A slurry pump has the ability to move difficult thick material from the material source, into and through the pump, and downstream to its final destination.
Slurry pumps are inherently rugged by the nature of what they do and are capable of pumping high viscous and high specific gravity solid-laden slurries without clogging. The non-clogging aspect of a slurry pump design is one of the most critical differentiating factors compared to other pump types. These pumps perform in some of the harshest environments a pump could be applied to and are used in many industries including dredging, oil & gas, mining, frac sand pumping and many other industries.
How to Choose a Slurry Pump
The following list of 8 significant considerations are to help you understand your pump application necessities in relation to selecting the best-suited pump for your application. The greater the viscosity, specific gravity, abrasion, and other important fluid and non-fluid characteristics makes selecting a pump more difficult because these factors play into the situation at a greater level of importance, making the following application specifics even more critical.
Critical - Know Your Application!
Type of material will be pumped (sand, sludge, mud, muck, slurry, etc.). Knowing the characteristics of the material is critical for choosing the most suited slurry pump.
- Density of material to be pumped (specific gravity - 2.5 Sg, etc.)
- Viscosity of material to be pumped (1,000 centipoise (CPS), etc.).
- Operating temperature of material.
- The pH level - pH is a measure of hydrogen-ion concentration. An easy way to remember pH is that a pH of 7 is neutral, below 7 acid, and above 7 alkaline.
- High chrome steel is well suited for pH levels between 4 and 9. Duplex stainless steel is ideally suited for pH levels less than 3 and above 10.
- Flow rate required (example: 500 GPM or 100 cu. yards per hour [cu-yd/h]).
- Discharge Head (example: 100 PSIG).
The pump chosen must be able to surpass the total discharge head for the application. This helps to reduce the potential abrasion to the pump and discharge pipeline.
Length of inlet and discharge pipeline (example: 1,000-ft.).
Diameter of inlet and discharge pipeline (example: 4-in., 10-in., 12-in., etc.).
Pipeline material of construction (example: steel, polyvinyl chloride, cast iron, etc.).
Pump elevation in relation to fluid source.
Flooded suction (pump positioned below fluid source).
Submersible suction (pump positioned within fluid source).
Elevated suction (pump positioned above fluid source, pump must be self priming).
Match the Best Suited Pump to Your Application Requirements
Pump size must effectively produce a greater flow rate than the critical flow rate of the pump.

U.S. Navy Pump Savings Analysis - $17 Million saved Using EDDY Pump. Lowest Total Ownership CostsThe U.S. Navy Saved $17,000,000.00 Dollars by using the Eddy Pump.
Over 4 years, the total cost of the Eddy Pump vs our competition. Lets Explore.
See the FULL Report https://eddypump.com/navysavings
Lockheed Martin, one of the largest Defense Companies in the world was tasked to find the best sewage transfer pump for a new fleet of US Government ships. They turned to the US Navy to gather 3M Naval Maintenance records. This shows maintenance cost and details across all of the US Navy on equipment they operate.
Based on this data Lockheed Martin put together a Total Cost Analysis that compared twenty-five 3-inch Eddy Pumps with controllers to twenty-five of the leading centrifugal pumps. This information spanned 4 years from 2002 to 2006.
This analysis compared 4 key items, Acquisition Cost, Overhaul & Replacement cost, Corrective Actions, and finally Maintenance cost.
As you can see from the numbers, the big difference over 4 years is the cost of corrective action, which is replacing broken parts, manpower to fix, and downtime.
The Eddy Pump costs were $359,000.00 Versus $18,000,000 in corrective action costs for 25 centrifugal pumps. The use of 25 Eddy Pumps over 4 years saved the US Navy $17,717,000.00.
No other pump on the market has a total life-cycle cost as low as the Eddy Pump. Many companies sell cheap pumps because they know they will make their money on high priced spare parts, but not the Eddy Pump!
