HYDRA-CELL SLURRY DUTY
In abrasive slurry mixtures, all valve assembly components are critical to valve reliability. The Hydra-Cell Slurry Duty design is intended for improved abrasion resistance over standard “abrasive duty” pumps which have a ceramic valve and valve seat.
The unique Hydra-Cell Slurry Duty valve design eliminates relative movement between the valve assembly components.
• Crush seal preloads valve assembly
• Ground, balanced spring design
• Valve seat O-ring groove is 100% filled
• Polyurethane wear washers at spring ends
The hard valve “poppet” seals to relatively soft, elastic valve seat to resist abrasion
• The seat absorbs and releases abrasive particles
• Large sealing surface ensures reliability and minimizes stresses
