Sludge Pro® Disc Pumps


Traditional Double Disc Pumps

Low rpm speeds under 120 rpm may lead to longer lasting parts.   High speeds of up to 500 rpm may cause faster
wear of components.
Easy access inspection cover.  

No inspection covers for internal access.

Blockages can be removed through
access cover.
  Pump body may have to be removed to access blockages.
Disc and trunnion replacement without
removal of piping.
  Pump body and pedestal drive must be removed to access all trunnion (diaphragm membrane) and discs.
Disc never contacts pump body and fluid
travels along contoured velocity channel
keeping solids beyond reach of trunnion
and disc.

Disc uses pump body as valve seat and is directly in flow path of solids which can puncture disc and accumulate under disc, causing sealing issues and may impede functionality.

Ball check valves and seats can be accessed through the cover within seconds.   Flapper valve can only be accessed by removing piping elbow.
