Slurry Pumps

A general misconception about canned motor pumps is that they can only be used on clean, cool fluids because of their tight internal clearances and the fact that the bearings must be lubricated by the pumped fluid. In truth, canned motor pumps are ideal for leakproof pumping of solids-laden fluids - even slurries - if they are properly designed. Some configurations for pumping solids or slurries are:

> Backflushing
> Isolated Motor
> Hardened Wear Parts
> Filters on the recirculation line
