Polyurethane Slurry Pump Impellers Perform Well Under Tough Conditions:
The impeller is arguably the essential part of your slurry pump, and slurry applications can be particularly hard on it. Because of the abrasive nature of the slurry, it’s critical that you choose the right slurry pump impeller so you can operate effectively without constant breakdowns.
Types of Slurry Pump Polyurethane Impellers:
Open Polyurethane Impellers: An open Polyurethane impeller has blades that are attached to a hub. This design looks very similar to a boat propeller or a fan. They are ideal for situations in which the impeller needs to be cleaned on a regular basis or there is a risk of blockage. Though an open Polyurethane impeller tends to have low efficiency, its efficiency can be regularly maintained through Polyurethane impeller clearance adjustment.
Semi-Open Polyurethane Impellers: A semi-open Polyurethane impeller has a circular plate attached to one side of the blades. It is ideal for use with trash and debris laden liquids.
Closed Polyurethane Impellers: A closed Polyurethane impeller, also called a shrouded impeller, has one circular plate on each side. It ideal for pumping water and other liquids at higher head pressures. While the closed design is initially very efficient, it loses its efficiency as the wear ring clearance increases. The design of this impeller makes it more difficult to modify and because its internal parts are hidden, it’s hard to inspect for flaws.
Advantages of Polyurethane Impellers:
Polyurethane is the preferred material for many slurry pump impeller applications, especially highly abrasive and wear intensive applications. Polyurethane outperforms plastics, rubbers, and a number of metals in many ways, including:
• Increased hardness range
• Twice the tensile strength and tear strength as rubber
• High energy absorption capability
• Resistant to oil, chemicals, and environmental conditions
• Extremely high abrasion resistance
Custom Slurry Pump Polyurethane Impellers:
An polyurethane impeller is one of the most important components of a slurry pump’s performance. With a new or modified polyurethane impeller, you can give new life to an old slurry pump.
