Custom Eductor Solutions for Slurries & Solids
Bamford & Morris can provide a range of custom designed and manufactured eductors for applications involving pumping & transporting slurries, fluidised solids and dry solids, powders and pellets such as sand, minerals, drilling mud, ion exchange resins, GAC, and lime.
With no moving parts they have minimal maintenance requirements. With the option to be supplied with a ceramic nozzle and throat they have a long operational life even under the harshest operating conditions.
Eductors for Slurries & Fluidised Solids
- Operate on the same principles as a liquid eductor but require a higher motive pressure to accommodate the higher pressure losses due to the solids content in the suction fluid.
- Designed for pumping, lifting and mixing of highly erosive fluidised slurries where mechanical devices would be considered unsuitable or uneconomical.
- Replaceable nozzle and throat manufactured in Syalon 101 silicon nitride ceramic for high wear areas prolongs the operational life of the eductor as a whole.
- For larger sizes, up to 40"nb, High Alumina Ceramic linings are used which can be applied to the nozzle and throat as well as the eductor body itself if required.
- Near fit and forget minimal maintenance required so can be installed in difficult to reach areas.
Eductors for Dry Solids, Powders & Pellets
- Are designed for pumping & transporting granular or pelletised solid content, such as GAC, or mixing powdered solids such a lime, anthracite, salt, whey and other food stuffs.
- Addition of a hopper and washdown system to a slurry eductor allows dry solid content to be added to the eductor quickly and efficiently via automated or manual methods.
- Transfer rate dependent on available motive conditions, the counter pressure to over overcome, the particle size and bulk density of the solids to be transported.
- Can be supplied mounted into a skid for ease of transport or for connection to existing processing systems.
- Typically manufactured in 316 Stainless Steel in sizes 2" nb to 6"nb. However any suitable commercially available material can be used and size is only dictated by the available motive fluid and pressure.
