SX400 Pneumatic Slurry Pump

The SX400 Solids Pump was primarily designed for the mining industry. The pump is capable of recovering up to 40m3/hour of various materials under vacuum, and delivering the same via 100mm pipe some several hundred metres. The SX400 Solids Pump can transfer mud, sludge and mining slurry along with heavy aqueous waste directly from the source to an array of destinations including skips, bulk tanks, further processing or return to belt if required.

Compact and with a relatively small footprint, when configured correctly the SX400 is capable of operating in an array of industries on a wide array of materials with a very high solids content suffering little or no wear.
