WEMCO® Model C Torque-Flow® Pump Durability and performance unmatched by any other grit-handling vortex slurry pump Two of the most pump-punishing industries, mining and dredging, had a serious problem: In addition to wear from severe abrasives, large solids were continually clogging conventional slurry pumps. They demanded constant service to unclog them as well as frequent maintenance and parts replacement. Downtime and costs were excessive. WEMCO® Pump engineers, experienced in designing pumps and mineralshandling equipment, tackled the problem. They began with the design criteria for a slurry.
Abrasion-resistant Alloy Extends Pump Wear Life Model C Standard Hardness 650+ BNH Silica sand is the most common grit particle any pump must handle. It is also one of the hardest (570 Bhn), most abrasive minerals on earth. To resist this abradant, pump wear parts must be of greater hardness than silica sand. (see charts) Model C Extra-Tough Hardness 600-700 BNH Less Hard Than Silica Sand 0-570 BNH 500 400 With this in mind, Weir Specialty Pumps constructs the WEMCO Model C wet-end parts from Ni-Hard or Hi-Chrome - two of the industry’s toughest, most abrasion-resistant alloys. Standard hardness. Hydraulic Design of Cupped Impeller Minimizes Wear The unique feature of the Model C pump is the performance and wear characteristics of its exclusive cup-type impeller.

The impeller vanes and rim are the thickest in the industry - up to 1 3/8”. Due to this thickness and exceptional hardness, erosion not only takes longer than conventional impellers, but actually extends the length of the vane. Since vane length determines pump performance, the additional length results in “betterthan-new” performance.
The practical benefit of this is a pump that continues to perform with “as-new” reliability. Hydraulic Design of Competitive Vortex Impeller Increases Wear Discharge Other vortex pumps use radial design impellers, which are highly efficient for handling soft, pipesize solids and long fibrous materials. WEMCO should know: they invented the radial pump for that specific application. Unfortunately, when used to pump highly abrasive grit, radial impeller pumps literally grind themselves to pieces.
Performance as well as hydraulic efficiency drops drastically, as shown below. Impeller Back Plate Suction Because the radial impeller operates in a confined area of the pump case, it discharges. Advantages of Model C Mechanical Design The power end of the pump has a heavy duty shaft designed to pump slurries with high specific gravities. Bearings have a minimum B-10 life of 100,000 hours (equal to 11 1/2 years of continuous 24-hour service) at any point on the performance curve. In most applications bearing life is more that 200,000 hours Fully recessed cup-type impeller Replaceable high-chrome wearplate Extra thick Hi-Chrome wet-end parts Easily replaceable suction piece Because the suction end of a pump is exposed to the greatest abrasive wear, we designed the case in two pieces.
