pressure gauge octa and Abrasion Technologies (PABT) unveiled its new CURVE range of slurry pumps in September 2016. A distinguished South African ferrochrome processing plant was among the many first companies to adopt this new know-how by implementing a venture to vary all their pumps to the CURVE range. The conversion venture commenced with the installation of the first CURVE slurry pump on 1 November 2016 and since then, this pump’s performance has surpassed all expectations, while being closely monitored to validate the precise performance of the CURVE slurry pumps in real-world functions and conditions.
Innovative Features:
The CURVE S150 model presents a quantity of progressive features that makes it a super candidate to meet the client’s operational needs. These features include a one piece volute liner, absolutely profiled impeller vanes, adjustable throatbush, enhanced cutwater profile, and a clip-in suction joint. Sealing performance and life have been addressed by a bigger diameter expeller and excessive chrome shaft sleeve and lantern ring. The CURVE S150 additionally includes a discharge piece designed to eliminate the want to take away the discharge pipe throughout routine upkeep.
Operational Benefits:
The major benefit in investing within the CURVE vary of slurry pumps is cost saving: Through using the latest design and technology, these slurry pumps are extremely durable and thereby scale back the entire value of ownership. Along with this, the CURVE slurry pumps boast an extended put on life cycle, are safer to work on and require less maintenance.
When upkeep is done, it has been reported to be simpler and faster compared to previous slurry pumps. This is due to the inherent features of the CURVE range, for instance: The slurry pump’s encapsulated one-piece volute liner reduces opening and shutting time by 80%, eye bolts allow for safe elimination of the casing, the casing meeting is a balanced load for safe handling, and due to the newly designed discharge piece – the discharge pipe no longer needs to be removed when opening.
The CURVE range of slurry pumps additionally reduces electricity consumption due to its efficient design where slurry flows through the pump in a extra natural flow pattern. A uniform wear design implies that the hydraulic profile is maintained and efficiency remains ‘higher for longer’. Additional benefits that our customers have reported with our slurry pumps include excellent sealing and nil choking.
Total Ownership Cost Reduced Significantly

There are a variety of components that contribute to a discount in the complete possession value: Firstly, the pump’s adjustable suction liner maintains optimum clearances, thereby reducing wear and improving efficiency. There can be the one piece volute liner that improves the liner wear life. It has been confirmed time and time again that PABT’s design and engineering with the leading edge CURVE vary is ready to outperform older technology pumps available on the market.
