sludge vacuum pump

The liquid, sludge, and slurry are heavy, thick, and sometimes with big Solids Content, making them difficult to transfer with normal Centrifugal Pump or Sand Pump. And sometimes the fluid is abrasive and corrosive, so it is always a problem to make pump last, or remain cost effective when there is constant maintenance.

The transfer of solids-laden water encountered particularly in mining must be done efficiently and that requires the pump to be powerful, low maintenance and capable of standing up to the possibly aggressive nature of the pumped liquid.

GN Sludge Vcuum Pump, also named as solids transfer pump. It is a pneumatic slurry transfer vacuum pump for liquid,  slurry, and solids transfer. With special structure design, it can be used at tough environmental for solids  transfer, high working performance and less maintenance. The pump can transfer material with high gravity and high  density, solids content max. up to 80%.

The Sludge Vacuum Pump  can be widely used for industrial and Municipal Waste, such as sewage treatment plants,  cement plants, steel mills, railroads, oil refineries, chemical plants, foundries and power-generating stations.

The discharge is completely customized, so the transferred material can be discharged directly into a containment unit on site or sent via pipeline to kilometers away. There are almost no moving parts on our units, making breakdowns and maintenance a problem for the competition to worry about.

Material transfer applications

Sludge Vacuum Pump

This week GN solids control shipped 2 units of drilling cuttings transfer vacuum pump to Argentina, this is used together with 2 sets of drilling waste management system shipped in May, 2017. The client also bought 4 sets of cuttings screw conveyor to transfer the drilling cuttings.


Both of the cuttings vacuum pump and screw conveyor can be used to transfer the drilling cuttings to the vertical cutting dryer, also called vertical G dryer. The discharged solids from vertical cuttings dryer with OOC < 5%, the discharged fluids are transferred to the decanter centrifuge by screw pump. The vertical cuttings dryer and decanter centrifuge are the major equipments for drilling waste management system.
How to install the vacuum pump in the jobsite besides the vertical cuttings dryer?
The vacuum pump can replace the screw conveyor when the fluids content is higher in the drilling cuttings, GN will provide chargable material collection hopper to install on the top inlet of the vertical cuttings dryer. The vacuum pump will suck the drilling cuttings/ oil sludge from the waste pit with hose, the discharge line is also connect with the vertical cuttings dryer inlet top.
When the solids content is higher in the drilling cuttings, the client will use 2 sets of screw conveyor, one set is installed horizontally to collect the drilling cuttings from the solids control system, the other set is installed inslantly with less than 45 degree angle from the underground. The 2nd screw conveyor will transfer the drilling cuttings to vertical G dryer. Pls check the working video of the vacuum pump to transfer drilling cuttings or oil sludge from GN solids control wedsite.
