Why Vulcan HDS?

The Vulcan HDS submersible slurry pump is our highly advantageous, anchor product. It is U.S.-made, which includes all patterns, casting, and machine parts and assembly. It offers a wide variety of metallurgies, such as CD4CUN, Alloy 20, Hastelloy, 2205, 2507, and 316 stainless steel. 

Our slurry pumps can be manufactured in-house for application-specific requirements, including highly abrasive or corrosive environments. We provide ASTM A532 Cl. III Type A high-chrome iron liquid end casings for abrasive conditions—and adopt ASTM A890 duplex and super duplex stainless steels and ASTM A494 high nickel alloys for more chemical or chloride-inundated settings. 

Based on these properties and more, our HDS submersible slurry pumps can meet your requirements, even in the most challenging environments.
