Slurry and Flowable Sludge Pump with
Genuine 60mm Size Solids
The Mudskipper Pump is a portable compressed air powered unit for the vacuum recovery and pressure discharge of slurries and flowable sludges containing solids up to 60mm in lump size.
It’s very good vacuum capability of up to 18” Hg enables it to handle viscous materials with high solids concentration. There are no moving parts in contact with the material.
Fully automatic in operation, the Mudskipper requires only 37 litres/sec (80 scfm) to 47 litres/sec (100 scfm) air supply at 4.5 BAR (65 PSIG) to 8.0 BAR (116 PSIG) maximum via a 25 NB hose.
DIMENSIONS – 940mm (L) x 555mm (W) x 780mm (H)
WEIGHT – 140kg
Actual performance is dependent upon the type of material being handled. Flowable non-viscous slurries are recovered at a higher rate than the more viscous sludges with higher solids content.
For light sludges, the following figures are typical.
PRODUCTION RATE UP TO – 8m3 /hr
VERTICAL SUCTION LIFT – 6.5m
HORIZONTAL SUCTION RUN – 100m
VERTICAL DISCHARGE HEAD – 50m
HORIZONTAL DISCHARGE RUN – 500m
Mudskipper© Sieve Bend
Separate solids from sludge and slurry.
The bend removes the bulk of the water in the discharge feed from the pump. All solids larger than 0.4mm are returned onto the belt or collected for disposal. The underflow water exits by gravity or may be pumped away.
The bend can straddle a belt conveyor or be fixed to the roof in underground mines.
