Inclined rotor pump
An inclined rotor pump is a pump whose rotor is designed as a disc. See Fig. 1 Inclined rotor pump
This disc is arranged on the drive shaft in an inclined position. It rotates in a cylindrical casing with an axialpump suction nozzle (inlet nozzle) and a radial or tangential pump discharge nozzle. A centrifugal force field which maintains a pulsating flow is generated in the casing filled with fluid.
Inclined rotor pumps are suitable for pumping slurries and pulp-like substances (see Pulp pumping). Variants with special rotors and casings can be designed to also cut solids contained in the fluid handled.
