Goulds 5500 Severe Duty Slurry Pumps

Product Description

Goulds Model 5500 is the result of many years of experience designing and building severe duty slurry pumps. It's not only built to stand up to the toughest abrasive slurry services, but also is designed for extreme ease of maintenance and safety. A heavy duty bearing frame and shaft, extra thick wall sections and easily replaceable wear parts add up to many years of service even under the severest operating conditions.

Specifications

  • Capacities to 14000 GPM (3180 m3/h)
  • Heads to 425 feet (139m)
  • Temperatures to 250° F (121° C)
  • Pressures to 500 PSIG (3448 kPa)
  • Solids to 5 inches (127 mm) 
Design Features
Large Diameter Impeller - Develops higher heads at lower operating speeds.
Extra Heavy Duty Shaft - Assures minimum shaft deflection while handling pulsating loads associated with high specific gravity slurries.
Simplified Mechanical Design - For ease of installation and maintenance.
Extra Thick Wet End Components - For extended wear life.
Sealing Flexibility Choice of packing, mechanical seal or dynamic seal. 

Model Features

T-slot Bearing
Allows ease of disassembly and reassembly - less downtime -low maintenance costs.
Cast-In Lifting Lugs
On all major wet-end components facilitates handling for less downtime, greater safety and lower maintenance cost. No special tools required.  
Knock-Off Deflector
Protects bearings; facilitates threaded impeller removal. Less maintenance time, lower maintenance costs.
Flat Bottom Bearing Housing
Double register fit assures positive alignment and perfect fit with no shimming. Less maintenance and downtime.
Bearing Housing Hold-Down Bolts
Accessible from the top, facilitates impeller end clearance adjustment; simplifies power end removal. Less downtime, low maintenance cost.
Dynamic Seal
Expeller Option For Absolute Dry Box Sealing. Expeller and step-cut impeller engineered for positive stuffing box sealing. No outside flush required. Saves water, piping costs; eliminates product loss. All sizes performance tested.

Applications

  • Primary Metals - Ball Mill Discharge, Sag Mill Discharge, Tailings, Cyclone Feed
  • Coal Preparation - Heavy Media, Hydrocyclone, Cyclone Feed, Thickener Underflow
  • Non-Metallic Mining - Clay Slurries, Phosphate Slurries, Soda Ash, Potash
  • Sand and Gravel - Sand and Aggregate Slurries, Tailings
  • Power Utility - Ash Slurries, Lime Slurries
  • Wet Process Cement - Clay Wash, Clay Storage, Kiln Feed, Raw Grind Feed, Screenings
  • Pulp & Paper - Black Liquor, Sand Slurries, Mill Waste, Sludge, Scrubber Water, Fly Ash
  • General - Foundry Sand, Plant Waste, Mill Scale, Sand Slurries, Lime Slurries, Ash Slurries
