Cornell’s new slurry pumps expand their line of dewatering pumping solutions to abrasive applications in the mining industry. With Cornell’s patented Cycloseal® technology, their slurry pumps are built to operate without flush water.
Cornell’s Cycloseal® design, with its unique deflector vanes, works with the expeller to create a cyclo-action. This action removes solids and abrasive material from the seal area while purging air and gas pockets – extending seal life and eliminating any need for venting or water flush.
All pumps equipped with Cornell’s Cycloseal® system have an optional run-dry feature available, which serves to lubricate the seal faces even when there is no liquid in the pump casing. In situations where the pump must run dry for several hours, or where the pump may suddenly lose prime without being shut off, the RunDry™ feature is a must.
The Cycloseal® system requires no external water flush, filters, grease cups, piping or instrumentation normally associated with packing or double mechanical seals.
