Submersible Slurry Pumps

The Townley Submersible Slurry Pumps are designed to dewater the most abrasive sumps and ponds found in mining and coal-fired power plants. The MSP heavy-duty sump pump line uses a modular platform approach, where standard motors and wet-ends can be paired to match the customer’s voltage, flow, and head requirements. Designed with North American motors and cast high chrome wet-ends, these submersible slurry pumps have proven very reliable and an excellent alternative to the high maintenance vertical cantilever style pumps found throughout many industrial applications.

This heavy-duty design is used throughout the world, effectively pumping dirty water, diluted sludge, and abrasive slurries. Featuring integral mechanical and optional jet-ring mixers, the solids will remain suspended providing the most effective removal of the large solids and reducing the potential of “sanding in the sump.

This slurry sump pump is quickly becoming a reliable standard for the industry providing a critical tool for maintenance crews and plant operators. submersible pump
