FLSmidth Krebs gravelMAX Centrifugal Slurry Pump
The gravelMAX™ centrifugal slurry pump has a unique patented design developed to handle larger particles.
Industries and Applications of the gravelMAX Centrifugal Slurry Pump
Aggregates (Sand Plants,Cyclone Feed, Tailings)
Heavy-duty abrasive slurries
Any application requiring large solids passing
Increase Power & Reduce Cost in your mining enterprise
Krebs millMAX™ Pumps treat the cause of pump wear and loss of efficiency, whereas competitive pumps treat the symptoms through materials or predictive uneven wear rates.
The gravelMAX™ Pump has a unique patented design developed for severe abrasive slurries.
The gravelMAX™ Pump features a patented on-line wear clearance adjustment, which minimizes the cost-per-ton pumped compared to conventional hard metal and rubber lined slurry pumps through:
Pump higher percent solids
Maintenance of suction vacuum
Increase deposit life by digging deeper
Reduce power costs
Reduce the cost per ton
Adjust pump while running
Longer wear life of parts
The gravelMAX Casing is designed for minimum slurry turbulence and even wear. Includes integral wear ring, carrier, and adjustment screws for on-line adjustment and elimination of suction side recirculation.
The adjustable wear ring assembly to permit closing of suction side impeller clearance during operation. This reduces slurry recirculation and lowers pressure at the suction area, thereby maintaining flow and reducing wear.
The imperller is designed for high slurry efficiency and hydraulic performance. Machined surface at the eye for wear ring adjustment and high expelling vanes.
(Dependent on pump size), these are designed for close clearance at the back. Matching full impeller diameter and profile for close operating clearance.
Designed hydraulically to wear evenly. Constructed of high chrome at 680/720 Brinell hardness.
Heavy duty cast iron pedestal with external bearing assembly adjustment mechanism. Drilled for overhead motor mounting assembly.
Heavy duty shaft and indirect fitted taper roller bearings rated at 100,000 hrs B-10 life minimum. Bearing arrangement designed to prevent over greasing and ingress of slurry.
