Varkie S40: sludge slurry Pump
The Varkie S40 sludge slurry pump replaces the Varkie SVA40. The design is for use as a portable type horizontal submersible pump for applications for abnormal waste product movement.
Varkie S40 – Standard construction
Varkie S40X – Flameproof construction
Note:-The Varkie S40 replaces the Varkie SVA40.
The Varkie S40 has a design for transporting light slurries (up to an SG of 1.3) for applications where abnormal waste product movement.
Applications, where these pumps are proving successful, are:
- Mining applications (including fiery mines),
- Industrial water
- Agriculture irrigation,
- Construction site drainage
- Large commercial and domestic water features due to the vortex action has very good solids handling capabilities (up to 45 mm).
We design these units to run horizontally. This allows the unit’s motor to stay partially submerged when the pump loses prime and stops pumping, allowing the product to still cool the motor.
This model is the only one in the range that runs at two-pole, giving the pump a high head low flow type curve when compared to the range.
The wet end comprises of single full vortex impeller with a volute casing and requires no adjusting.
Careful consideration in the design of the unit to minimise onsite maintenance by utilising sealed for life bearings and a double-sided mechanical seal running in an oil bath. We do not recommend on-site maintenance, rather have a standby unit as a backup.
The unit can be mounted on an Amandla Float when required.
The Varkie S40X Will be soon approved to Ex d I, according to SANS 60079-1 for underground use in fiery mines. All international 3-phase standard voltage ratings are available from 380 to 1000V.
Material construction ranges from standard cast iron/chrome iron and stainless steel constructions or a combination thereof. Other special materials of construction are available on request.
