EBARA Fluid Handling, a leading provider of water and wastewater pumps, pump products and services, has added a new line of heavy duty submersible slurry pumps designed to handle corrosive and abrasive slurries in the harshest conditions.
Several unique design features are built in to the EBARA model ENZX slurry pumps that increase the efficient and effective pumping of slurries and lowers operating cost and wear on the pump. Durable construction extends wear life in corrosive environments with the ability to handle concentration of solids up to 30 percent. The pump stand and inlet screen are constructed of heavy-duty 304 stainless steel. High chrome components on the model ENZX carry a 56.8 hardness on the Rockwell scale and are extremely abrasion and corrosion resistant including the complete wet end, enclosed impeller, (upper and lower) wear liners, agitator, casing and ANSI flanged elbow.
The high chrome agitator fitted on the end of main impeller mixes the settled solid material with liquid into a highly concentrated slurry allowing the pump to lift the liquid and solid together, and eliminates pump clogging and suspends solids for cleaner sumps. The enclosed, high chrome impeller also provides higher efficiencies and extended wear life. Double mechanical seals with silicon carbide faces safely operate in oil chamber away from pumped slurry providing for extended wear life. High chrome iron replaceable wear liners are located above and below the impeller, avoiding costly casing replacement due to excessive wear.
High efficiency motors are three phase, 460 volt with integral thermal overload and seal leak protection and ship with standard 40’ length UL listed and CSA approved cables. Standard (UL listed/CSA approved) control panels, built specifically for the ENZX models, are available and designed to operate and control all protection devices on the pump.
The ENZX is available from 2 to 6 inches and with horsepower ranges from 7.5 to 30 HP, flows up to 1200 GPM and head to 140 feet, including a two stage, high head model that incorporates a dual impeller. EBARA’s model ENZX pumps are designed to easily retrofit into existing installations and for easy maintenance. ENZX slurry pumps are engineered for the toughest conditions and ideal for applications with abrasive and caustic slurries including mining, wastewater, industrial, mineral processing, power utilities, clean-up sumps and dewatering applications.
