Slurry agitator pump is a device that has the ability to move fluid or slurries using an agitator pump. Agitator pumps provide kinetic energy to slurry particles which surround the inlet of the pump, separating them from a liquid or fluid state. The solid particles separated from the fluid are pulled into the submersible slurry pump and pushed on through the discharge, ensuring the intake is clear and free of slurry accumulation. Slurry agitator pumps are available with flotation devices and a variety of options, including electric hoist, floating discharge piping, control panels, traversing winch, and high-pressured jet ring. This equipment is also used for removal of filer media at industrial plants. Emerging slurry agitator pumps with better innovative design, technology, and ability to perform different functions in mining, industrial, and power plants are expected to remain attractive among end-users. This has boosted the demand for slurry agitator pumps across the globe in few years.
Major drivers of the global slurry agitator pump market include continuous growth in the industrial sector and urbanization in developing economies. In addition, availability of technologically advanced products for better productivity and performance are expected to propel the market in the coming years. However, high price of slurry agitator pumps, lack of support assistance for equipment services, and rise in cost of maintenance of slurry agitator pumps are major restraints of the market. Development of new and innovative products and availability of slurry agitator pumps through e-commerce sites are expected to create significant opportunities for the market.
