1.What is Submersible Sand Slurry Pump

A submersible sand slurry pump is a type of pump specifically designed to handle abrasive and solid-laden materials, such as sand, sludge, and sediment. It is commonly used in sedimentation tanks to remove accumulated sediment and maintain the tank’s functionality.The submersible sand slurry pump are designed to be fully submerged in the liquid being pumped. They are typically placed directly inside the sedimentation tank, allowing them to effectively agitate and remove the sediment.

OCEAN Pump‘s submersible sand slurry pumps usually come with integrated agitators for customers’ selection. The agitator helps in stirring up the sediment and prevents it from settling, making it easier for the pump to transport the material. Given that sediment can be highly abrasive, submersible sand slurry pumps are made with robust construction and durable materials. They typically feature wear-resistant components such as impellers, volutes, and agitators made from hardened alloys or materials like high-chrome iron. These pumps are designed to handle high concentrations of solids, ranging from fine sand particles to larger sediments. They have larger passages and impeller clearances to prevent clogging and facilitate the smooth passage of solids.

The specific design and features of submersible sand slurry pumps may vary between manufacturers and models. When selecting a pump for a sedimentation tank, it is crucial to consider factors such as the type and size of sediment, required flow rate, head, and the overall performance capabilities of the pump.

2. Why choose a Submersible Sand Slurry Pump for Sedimentation Tank

2.1 Effective sediment removal with Submersible Sand Slurry Pump:

Sedimentation tanks are designed to achieve effective separation of solid particles from liquids through the process of settling. However, over time, a significant amount of sediment accumulates in the tank and needs to be regularly removed to ensure its continuous and efficient operation. To address this, OCEAN Pump has developed the DMS/DMD series of Submersible Sand Slurry Pumps specifically designed to handle highly abrasive and solid-laden media such as sand, sludge, and sediment. These pumps efficiently extract and transport sediment from the tank, ensuring the normal operation of the sedimentation tank.

2.2 Submersible capability of the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump:

Carefully designed submersible pumps, specifically the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump, are intended to operate fully submerged in the liquid they are pumping, making them particularly advantageous for sedimentation tank applications. By placing the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump directly inside the area where sediment accumulates in the tank, its effectiveness is maximized. Unlike conventional horizontal pumps, the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump produced by OCEAN Pump is immersed in water, allowing it to effectively agitate and relocate sediment, making it easier to extract and transport to the desired location. This design eliminates the need for cumbersome priming and pumping procedures while preventing air entry into the pump casing, which can cause cavitation, significantly extending the pump’s service life. Additionally, the installation and startup process of the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump require no complex pipeline arrangements, greatly simplifying the installation and operation procedures.

2.3 Robust construction of the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump:

Sediment is highly abrasive and contains solid particles of varying sizes. In light of this, OCEAN Pump’s research and development team has meticulously crafted the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump with a sturdy structure and heavy-duty materials to withstand the harsh environment caused by pumping abrasive materials. Additionally, the pump body of the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump is typically equipped with wear-resistant components such as a hardened impeller, volute, and agitator, effectively resisting the erosion of sediment-laden fluids. This exceptional durability ensures a longer pump service life, reducing maintenance and replacement costs.

2.4 Compact design and energy efficiency of the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump:

The Submersible Sand Slurry Pump typically has a compact structure and a space-saving design. This is advantageous for sedimentation tanks as the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump can be easily installed, especially in limited spaces. Furthermore, the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump employs an energy-efficient motor design, reducing power consumption and operating costs over time.

2.5Customized design for the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump:

Before selecting the pump model for customers, OCEAN Pump always adopts a rigorous and analytical approach to fully understand the customer’s operating conditions. This includes key parameters such as the size of the sedimentation tank, required extraction flow rate, head, and distance of discharge. To ensure optimal extraction concentration and efficiency, we are committed to providing customized solutions to customers, which may include recommendations for equipment such as agitators or high-pressure flushing pumps. We always prioritize customer needs and flexibly select the most suitable equipment based on different operating conditions to ensure the feasibility and practicality of the final solution.

2.6High safety performance of the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump:

The Submersible Sand Slurry Pump utilized by OCEAN Pump features a professional submersible motor that can operate safely underwater without concerns of cavitation, thereby extending the pump’s service life. Additionally, each Submersible Sand Slurry Pump from OCEAN Pump is equipped with a frequency control cabinet, enabling users to easily control the motor’s start and stop, greatly enhancing usability. To ensure the stable operation of the motor, protection circuits, including overheating protection, overload protection, and oil chamber water ingress protection, are installed, ensuring the safety of the entire system. The Submersible Sand Slurry Pump designed by OCEAN Pump fully considers the unique characteristics of underwater work and ensures the normal operation of the motor through waterproof motors and sealed housings.

3. Successful Case Study of Submersible Sand Slurry Pump in Sedimentation Tank

In April 2019, a customer from Indonesia contacted OCEAN Pump‘s professional sales representative, Lingda Kong, through WhatsApp (contact number: +86 185 6229 3317). Before recommending a pump model, Lingda had detailed communication with the customer and learned that the customer planned to purchase a Submersible Sand Slurry Pump for extracting sand from a sedimentation tank. The customer operated a sand field in Indonesia, where the sand was mixed with soil and other impurities. To ensure the quality of the sand source, the customer used multiple sand washing machines every day for purification. Additionally, they had a sedimentation tank to collect fine sand discharged with the water flow. The customer’s goal was to extract sand from the bottom of the sedimentation tank to clean the water for reuse, while also reclaiming the fine sand for sale.

To meet the customer’s specific needs, Lingda carefully selected the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump as the preferred sand dredging equipment. This pump features a unique design and easy operation, allowing the entire pump body to be submerged directly into the sedimentation tank. The bottom suction inlet of the pump enables direct and effective contact with the deposited sand layer. To enhance extraction efficiency, Lingda equipped the customer with a high-pressure flushing pump and made innovative modifications to the Submersible Sand Slurry Pump. The base bracket at the bottom was replaced with a hollow tube, which is connected to three water sprayers located at the top of the pump. The high-pressure water flow generated by the pump shatters the hardened sand, making it easier to extract.

Subsequently, we provided the customer with a comprehensive set of technical information, including selection parameters, design solutions, physical photos, and on-site working videos, to assist them in making informed decisions.
