Kevin Roelofse from Weir presented a paper on “The Application of Centrifugal Slurry Pump Sealing” which discussed that  specific attention is drawn to the various sealing options in centrifugal slurry pumps i.e. pumps that transfer slurries which in this case will be pumps installed in the various DMS (Dense Media Separation) plants and thickener underflow applications.  He also stressed the importance of using the most suitable sealing mechanism in a centrifugal slurry pump which is
of paramount importance.
