Grit Pumping
Water & Wastewater Treatment

Grit Pumping Solutions

Pumping high concentrations of highly abrasive silica grit, while maintaining a long service life, is the challenge of this application.

Our XR Torus Recessed Impeller Pumps are provided in Ni-Hard (500 BHN) or Super Ni-Hard (650 BHN) construction to withstand this abrasive environment and provide a very long service life. In addition, the strategically designed wear ring ensures only component replacement is required, not the entire pump. The unique wear ring design allows “reuse” with rotation, not available with other designs.

Ensure the grit pumping in your process is dealt with effectively and most importantly, with longevity.

Our Torus pumps can also handle:

  • Primary sludge with grit
  • Large, soft solids up to 8” in diameter
  • Long, stringy, fibrous materials
  • Slurries and sludges with some gas entrainment
