Air operated solids and slurry pumps. Ultra tough pumping units capable of transferring any flowable material across a wide range of agricultural, industrial, municipal, mining, oil and gas applications.
SX Solids Pumps
Southern Cross SX Solids Pumps are Pneumatic conveying units which are capable of transferring up to 60m3/hour of any flowable material with solids sizes up to 80% of the diameter of inlet. SX Solids Pumps are not a competitor for conventional pumps, they come into their own when traditional pumps fail due to the high solids nature of the material being conveyed. SX Solids Pumps are self priming and are fully sealed with zero discharge, allowing for the safe transfer of hazardous materials for environmental compliance. SX Solids Pumps are 100% air operated, relying on compressed air to create a vacuum and high airflow
With easy access to air supply and suction and discharge pipelines, SX Solids Pump units can be deployed in less than 10 minutes. Deployment is a simple process involving the connection of suction and discharge pipes (camlock, victaulic or BSP), air hoses and then turning on the air supply. Once running, units are controlled by simply varying the suction and discharge timers to suit the material being conveyed, the distance being recovered from and the transfer distance. This allows for fully automatic operation. Alternatively, units can be manually operated using a switch to control loading and discharge times.
SX Solids Pumps require no electricity supply to operate and have been designed to safely operate in hazardous environments
