Thick sludge has to be pumped out of a cement factory in northwestern Turkey. Conventional #wastewater pumps fail here because of the abrasive medium. However, the sludge pumps of the #Tsurumi KRS series are completely different. Extremely robust submersible pumps made of heavy-duty cast iron, driven by a 4-pole motor.
Settled materials are mixed into a pumpable suspension by the built-in agitator. The other wearing parts such as the impeller and suction plate are also made of high-chrome cast iron to increase durability. The design with upward side discharge ensures efficient engine cooling even when the engine is operated in air.
