You might not have heard about a vacuum loading solids transfer pump because of the long name used for describe such a powerful pump. But if I mention about a vacuum pump, a solids pump, an air driven slurry pump, it becomes familiar for you. Cause in recent years, those vacuum loading solids transfer pumps are becoming so popular.
This transfer pump can handle for different applications, for wet materials including but not limited to: oily sludge transfer, slurry transfer, tank bottom mud cleaning, animal waste and etc. For dry materials, it can work even better and wider with active carbon, sands, small stones and etc.
This solids pump allows in quite big particles, that’s why it is called a solids pump. The only limit to the incoming material size is the pipe diameter, and GN Solids Pumps can handle particles up to 75mm with a GNSP-40B pump.
It is also called a vacuum pump because it is driven by air only. It doesn’t have a motor for energy, instead, it uses compress air for make a vacuum inside the pump and suck in the material, and also, it pushes out the material with air force. That’s why it is suitable for explosive environment.
Which model is most suitable?
It depends on several factors:
1. Distance from the material’s original location and the distance to where you need to transfer the material. A GNSP-40 vacuum pump can even deliver the material to 1000 meters away, and the smaller models can deliver to 500 meters.
2. Transferring capacity: there are 3 optional models respectively with capacity of 10 cbm per hour, 20 cbm per hour and 40 cbm per hour.
3. Movable or not: if the jobsite is comparably fixable, and you need a larger capacity, then the GNSP-40B will be the most suitable. Well if you need to move the pump as a pulley, the GNSP-10B and GNSP-20B are more suitable cause they are equipped with wheels.
