When we think about dewatWhen we are choosing a submersible pump for drainage, the first consideration is the nature of the liquid being pumped. Important factors to consider include general composition, the concentration and size of suspended particles as well as the liquid’s pH level, temperature, and chemical content. For example, is it water with fine particles or a much thicker fluid, and how aggressive a media is it? The different types of liquid can be seen below.
The higher concentration of solids is best handled by slurry pumps which are specially designed for handling corrosive and abrasive media. If the liquid is particularly aggressive then ensure the pump is robust and designed with protection features such as hardened, clog-free impellers and wear-resistant.
