The SV280-V Heavy Duty Solids Pump is a high velocity, heavy duty solids pump, capable of capturing high density slurries via a strong 25”Hg vacuum combined with high velocity airflows.

The SV280-V Heavy Duty Solids Pump can handle solids to 80% of the employed hose diameter and will transfer up to 40 m3/hr @SG1.0(132USGPM) depending on the materials and distances involved.

The SV280-V Heavy Duty Solids Pump has no moving components that come in contact with the material being pumped and can pass rags, bolts and many other items that would render a standard impeller pump inoperable.
