What is ceramic slurry pump?

The ceramic slurry pump, also known as mud pump or the drilling pump, is the key equipment in the drilling fluid circulation system. It is generally used to transport the drilling fluid to the bottom of the well under high pressure in order to cool the drill bit and carry cuttings. At the same time, it is also the power fluid for bottom hole power drilling tools. Due to the characteristics of deep drilling holes and many cuttings, the pump volume and pump pressure of the ceramic slurry pump are required to be large.

Working principles:

The ceramic mud pump is a kind of reciprocating pump, and its working principle is exactly the same as that of the general reciprocating pump.When working, the power machine drives the main shaft and the crank fixed on it to rotate through transmission parts such as belts, transmission shafts, and gears. When the crank rotates counterclockwise from left to right from the horizontal position, the piston moves to the power end, the pressure in the liquid cylinder gradually decreases and a vacuum is formed, and the liquid in the suction pool opens the suction valve and enters the liquid cylinder under the action of the liquid surface pressure , until the piston moves to the right dead center. This working process is called the suction process of the pump.

After the crank completes the above-mentioned suction process, it continues to rotate in the counterclockwise direction. At this time, the piston starts to move 

to the hydraulic end, and the liquid in the cylinder is squeezed. The pressure rises, the suction valve is closed, the discharge valve is pushed open, and the 

liquid enters the discharge pipe until the piston moves to the left dead center. This working process is called the discharge process of the pump. With the 

continuous operation of the power machine, the reciprocating pump continuously repeats the suction and discharge process, and continuously sends the liquid in the 

suction tank to the bottom of the well through the discharge pipe.

Features of ceramic slurry pump:

1. Horizontal and vertical axial split double pump casing structure, reliable operation and long service life.

2. Yi Jia Slurry Pump adopts a split shell design, which can easily overhaul the liner, impeller and sealing sleeve for maintenance.

3. Made from ceramic composite materials, the average service life is more than 5 times of that of high chromium metal material.

4. Ceramic impellers can be designed and manufactured for any type and size of pump to provide high wear resistance and optimum performance.

5. Fully interchangeable spares and pumps are available for the most common pump brands on the market with the same footprint, wet end, base frame and bearing 


6. The product has a wet end bushing that can be replaced on site, making it easy to maintain. These liners are self-sealing to provide a reliable seal. Several rubber compounds can be used for various purposes: natural rubber compounds can achieve high abrasion resistance, and nitrile and neoprene rubbers can be used for different chemical properties.


Notes: Most Ceramic Slurry Pumps have an assembly auxiliary arm to support the suction sleeve when replacing the impeller and maintaining the gland. This feature allows technicians to remove the casing from the pump without having to drop the components on the ground or use a crane.

As one of the professional slurry pump manufacturers, Yijia provides high quality Horizontal Ceramic (SIC) Slurry Pump, Vertical Centrifugal Ceramic (SIC) Sump 

Pump and High Head Ceramic (SIC) Slurry Pump and spare parts with low cost price! Welcome to select your favored products! 

Ceramic slurry pumps structure:

1. The wet part is made of sintered silicon carbide ceramics, which is sintered at 1400 ℃ in an automatic nitriding furnace.

2. The wet part and the frame are connected by bolts, and the user can adjust the discharge direction of the pump according to their needs.

3. The bolts on the frame are used to adjust the gap between the impeller and the throat sleeve for efficient work.

4. For handling abrasive and corrosive fluids, mechanical springs are set outside to prevent clogging. The smooth design is adopted when the shaft diameter is large and the line speed is high.

Why choose a ceramic slurry pump?

- Wear resistance is 4 times that of high chromium

- Resistant to PH0-12 almost all acids and alkalis

- Resistant to large solid shocks

- 3~8 times longer service life than metal pumps

- Energy saving and consumption reduction >20% -40%

Ceramic slurry pump applications:

The ceramic slurry pump can handle heavy, abrasive, sticky, biological waste, corrosive slurries, sewage, and even lime slurries, spills, carbon transfer etc. Mainly used in mining, metallurgy, municipal, power, coal, petroleum, chemical, building materials and other industries.
