SH Solids Handling Pump

Solids Handling Pumps for difficult media at high pressure.

ABEL SH SOLIDS HANDLING PUMPS span a wide performance range and are suited for a large number of pumping media and applications. These high pressure pumps really prove their worth when extremely abrasive, paste-like and compact media (e.g. dewatered sewage sludge) or mine tailings with high solids content have to be conveyed safely at high pressure. This pump has extra wall thickness and a large intake valve, which, when combined with a very good filling ratio, produce a service life that is longer than the norm.

Along with the actual pump unit (consisting of sludge, hydraulic main and valve cylinders) an ABEL SH solids handling pump comprises a total of four components: the actual pump, the hydraulic drive unit, a screw feeder for sticky media to fill the product cylinder, and a control cabinet with PLC. The programmable logic controller is the “brain” of the system and allows for integration with complex processes and control room systems.

  • Duplex piston pump with hydraulically-actuated cone valves – short-circuit free, even at high pressures
  • Cone valves with elongated valve rods – safe protection against cross-contamination of the hydraulic circuit with the pumped media
  • Electrical pump control as standard with modern PLC for local or external parameters, e.g. incinerator temperature control
  • Capable of running dry
  • Enclosed pipeline transfer

Fully automatic, efficient disposal and feed operations.
