More information about sludge pumps:

Sludge pumps are commonly used in municipal sewage treatment applications, as well as in mining, construction, agriculture, or industrial applications in which heavy waste fluids are processed. They generally need to have a high-powered mechanism to move fluids that are often very heavy and sometimes viscous and full of volatile or corrosive content.

Some sludge pumps are progressive cavity pumps, which utilize turning rotors to move a fluid through a series of cavities. Others are centrifugal pumps. Regardless of the type used, it’s important for the sludge pump is well-built and vacuum sealed, especially given the fact that many types of chemical and sewages waste can be harmful to humans.
