Solid Handling Pumps

High solids pumps for transferring potentially abrasive fluids

As suppliers of solids handling pumps for almost 15 years, you can rely on Castle Pumps to specify a solution that can efficiently handle your fluid without damage or downtime. The nature of solid content can massively differ from highly abrasive stones and sharp metal shards to clogging solids such as rags, tissue and fruit juice pulp, right down to soft, malleable particles often found in food processing that need to remain intact. This is why our range of quality constructed, solid handling pumps is so varied and covers many pumping technologies. Getting the wrong pump when it comes to handling solid content can result in clogging, excessive wear and complete pump failure. That’s where Castle Pumps can help you with a solution.
