SV280-V Heavy Duty Solids Pump


The SV280-V is a high volume, heavy duty vacuum pump, capable of capturing high density slurries via a strong 25"Hg vacuum combined with high volume airflows.

The SV280-V can handle solids to 80% of the employed hose diameter and will transfer up to 30m³/hr. depending on the materials and distances required.

The SV280-V 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 centrifugal pump, inoperable.
