Tsurumi released the heavy sand pump, the top model in the series, with a water output of almost 2,400 gallons per minute (gpm). The pump is designed for use whenever considerable amounts of solid matter are involved, Tsurumi said.

The unit can pass 30-mm hard rocks. The agitator at the suction opening mixes mud and water so that it becomes more fluid, the company reported.

The pump runs on a 37-kW electric motor and features an oil filter that uses centrifugal force to lubricate in any position. It pumps vertically up to 24 meters. Submerged it is pressure-resistant down to 30 meters. The impeller, suction plate and housing are made of cast iron.
