Viscous sludge is generated when minin gravel in the open-cast mine which must be pumped off.
A type KRS2-150 Tsurumi pump with agitator passes the abrasive viscous sludge to an abandoned mine at a distance of 125m. The agitator ensures powerful whirling of the sludge, solid cast iron/chromium cast iron minimises wear.
In the event of abrasive and corrosive utilization, stronger wear and tear will take place naturally in certain components. With regards to the above application wear and tear can take place mainly in impeller, agitator, suction plate, shaft sleeve, oil ring, mechanical seal, pump casing, strainer, motor casing and discharge coupling. Depending on the working conditions the lifetime of those parts might vary significantly and can be shorter than the legal warranty period.
