The primary challenge for wastewater pumps in power and coal industry applications is the handling of abrasives, often at low to medium flow rates. Limestone or fly ash slurries, gypsum or bottom ash, boiler slag, chunks or clinkers create a maintenance nightmare for most pumps. The Pitbull Pump is uniquely capable of handling the abrasives that are common in coal industry applications. The simple and rugged design of the air-operated Pitbull Pump allows slurries or clinkers to flow through easily, and it lacks the internal parts that can fail from abrasive wear.
