3.How to Choose Submersible Sand Pumps?
1 Determine the capacity of the submersible sand pump
When chosing a submersible sand pump, determine the required pump capacity or flow rate, usually measured in gallons per minute (GPM) or cubic meters per hour (m³/h). This value depends on the volume of sand or solids to be moved and the expected operating speed. It should be noted that the capacity or flow rate listed in the DMD submersible sand pump parameter table refers to the clean water mixing flow rate. OCEAN Pump has professional flow testing equipment that can accurately measure the flow of different pump types, and provides submersible sand pumps with different flow levels according to customer needs.
2. Choose the appropriate submersible sand pump lift head
When making decisions about the pressure required for submersible sand pump cleaning tasks, two key factors, head and discharge distance, need to be fully considered. The head refers to the vertical distance from the clean water surface to the highest discharge point, while the discharge distance represents the horizontal distance between the submersible sand pump and the discharge point. Both of these have a significant impact on the pressure required. Corresponding measures should be taken according to the needs of different customers. If the lift is too low, it may result in insufficient liquid delivery; conversely, if the lift is too high, energy consumption and costs may increase.
For example, for cleaning locations that only need to discharge slurry/sand to the shore, a high-flow, low-lift head pump type can be selected to meet basic cleaning needs while avoiding waste of energy and resources. However, for customers who need to transport slurry to longer distances, such as 500 meters, 1000 meters, 2000 meters or even further, the situation is different. In this case, the head, flow rate and discharge distance need to be comprehensively considered, and the number of booster pumps may even need to be increased to ensure that the customer’s demand for long-distance transportation is met.
On such issues, OCEAN Pump will fully consider the actual situation and needs of customers. Based on the required lift, flow rate and discharge distance, we provide customers with the most suitable solution, which may include customized designs, to ensure that cleaning tasks can be completed efficiently and stably.
3. Consider submersible sand pump construction and materials
When looking at the construction and materials of a submersible sand pump, recognize the significant impact they have on performance and durability. Generally, the structure of the pump can be divided into two categories: open type and closed type. The open structure impeller has a large flow rate and a low head, and is easy to clean, so it is suitable for projects with large barge output and no need to discharge materials to the shore. In comparison, the closed structure impeller has a smaller flow channel and limited flow, but has a higher lift and less wear. However, it is more difficult to clean. It is suitable for extracting materials that are not easy to block, such as fine sand and mud on the seaside.
In order to take into account the advantages of both, the OCEAN Pump R&D department designed a semi-open impeller or a three-blade impeller structure to ensure the flow and lift while also ensuring the passage of the slurry. This improvement gives the large particle submersible sand pump significant advantages in overflow performance and wear resistance. In terms of materials, OCEAN Pump’s submersible sand pump flow parts are made of high-chromium wear-resistant alloy materials, and customized services of stainless steel or other materials are provided according to the customer’s special slurry material.
4 Pay attention to the power and voltage of the submersible sand pump
When choosing a submersible slurry pump, power supply and practical requirements are two crucial considerations. Improper selection of pump power may result in insufficient flow and head, affecting the normal working effect of the pump. On the contrary, if the power is too high, it will not only increase energy consumption and operating costs, but may also cause unnecessary burden on the equipment and affect its service life.
In addition, there is another important factor to consider, which is the difference in industrial voltage frequencies in different countries. The commonly used industrial voltage frequency in our country is 380V/50HZ, and in some countries it is 440V/60HZ. In order to ensure the stable operation of the submersible slurry pump, OCEAN Pump will fully understand the voltage frequency of the customer’s country before selecting a model for the customer, and customize it according to the actual local conditions.
The one-stop service provided by OCEAN Pump to customers also includes supporting frequency conversion control cabinets. Through the frequency conversion control cabinet, users can easily adjust the flow and lift of the pump to protect the safe operation of the motor and meet different work needs. This not only improves the utilization rate of the submersible slurry pump, saves energy, but also reduces operating costs.
