Mud Sucker 3BW-EC™ Features

Walking beam diaphragm pump features
1. Solids Crushing Ball Valves enable tough slurry and solids handling
Crush solids, move tough slurry with a specialized check ball that allow tough solids to pass without clogging.
2. Exclusive Cast Iron Fluid Channel Improves Flow
Professional design and engineering makes all the difference. Mud Sucker fluid channels feed the check ball more effectively to move slurry fast.
3. Santoprene Diaphragms
Reduce your maintenance with the industry's toughest diaphragms engineered for hundreds of oils, chemicals, slurry and debris. Long lasting and proven for most applications.
4. Pump Sizing
BW Series severe duty pump products are available in 3" or 4" connection sizes. This enables you to move up to 220 GPM of tough municipal or industrial slurry.
5. Pressure Relief Valve
For added convenience and safety, the pressure relief valve enables you to relieve suction pressure.
