Agitator Slurry Pumps
Available from Piranha Pumps & Dredges
An agitator for slurry pumps delivers kinetic energy (energy of motion) to solids surrounding the pump intake, re-suspending them into a fluid state which would have otherwise buried and starved the pump of liquid. The solids are pulled into the submersible slurry pump and pushed on through the discharge, keeping the intake clear and free of slurry accumulation. A submersible slurry pump without mechanical agitation will only pump the water, leaving the solids behind to accumulate around your pump intake, and eventually starve the pump by blocking the intake. Piranha Slurry Agitator Pumps are available with flotation devices and a variety of options, including electric hoist, traversing winch, floating discharge piping, control panels, and high-pressured jet ring (for additional agitation).
