End Suction Pumps

Are centrifugal pumps that usually have one impeller and volute type casing. They are usually found as frame mounted pumps or as close coupled pumps. They are very similar to slurry pumps, mud pumps, and other types of waste water pumps. Sludge pumps require a high-powered mechanism to move fluids that are often very heavy and sometimes viscous and full of volatile or corrosive content. They are commonly used in municipal sewage treatment applications, as well as in mining, construction, agriculture, or industrial applications in which heavy waste fluids are processed.
