Hippo Cantilever Vertical Spindle Heavy Duty Slurry Pumps

Streamlining Your Slurry Pumping Solutions.

The Hippo Vertical Spindle family of pumps is designed for the ultimate in slurry handling while the vertical Spindle Cantilever design eliminates submerged bearings. The Top suction Type VT design eliminate air binding, with allows the pump to run dry and quickly reprime when required. The Twin volute casing design balance the radial loads created by the Impeller and Casing in the most efficient way, assuring trouble free installation with a longer bearing life.

Hippo Vertical Range consist of a buttom suction, a top suction, a heavy duty vertical spindle vortex pump as well as Bottom Discharge Heavy Duty Slurry Vertical Spindle Pump

Hippo VB - Bottom Suction Heavy Duty Submersible

The Hippo (VB) Vertical Bottom Suction Model

The Hippo type VB Pump’s Construction is Ideal for pumping quick settling abrasive or corrosive slurries with an external agitator preventing the settling of solids at the intake. The Hippo Pump is capable of pumping slurries which have settled out and need to be removed.
