KSB Slurry pump

KSB-MHD Slurry Pumps



KSB-MHD-ModularDesigned to provide high flow/medium head with high efficiency for high
volume transportation in long pipelines.

Horizontal end suction construction. Single wall pump shell
with replaceable suction side liner; four vane impeller or
three vane option for larger size solids.

Wear Parts

1. Impeller is designed for wear-resistant operation in
highly abrasive slurries using GIW’s flow simulation
computer program.
2. Two aramid gaskets aid in the removal of the impeller.
3. Replaceable suction liner facilitates pump internal
inspection and minimizes wear part usage and cost.
Liner can be rotated at intervals to increase wear life.
4. Pump shell is computer designed to optimize wear
and efficiency.


Shaft Seal

KSB-MHD-LSA-Shaftseal5. Replaceable wear plate maximizes stuffing box life.
Reduced water consumption options available.
6. Shaft sleeve with fused carbide wear resistant coating
to maximize packing life


Mechanical End

KSB MHD-Curves7. Robust stiffened shaft to improve the wear life
of the mechanical end and stuffing box.
8. Impeller release ring for safe and easy impeller
removal. Feature is standard on larger pump sizes.
9. Spring retainer ring locates the thrust bearing
preload springs for correct axial thrust load.
10. Radial bearings are a heavy duty, self-aligning,
double-row, spherical roller-type design.
11. Split-cartridge bearing assembly offers ease of
inspection and maintenance.
12.Accurate impeller clearance adjustments are easily
made with the adjusting screw.
13. Labyrinth seals protect bearings.


Quick Alignment

14. Rabbet fits machined in the pedestal support the
shell and provide component alignment.
