Trash pumps separate liquids and solids, particularly in wastewater treatment plants, simultaneously removing water and waste. Effective trash pumps can pump thousands of gallons of liquid in a minute, lifting more than 100 ft. of water vertically.

Mines and drilling rigs receive tremendous advantages when using trash pump parts. Even though these parts are tough and resilient, they are susceptible to malfunction and breakdown due to frequent wear and tear. These faults and issues are resolvable but at high costs.

It would be wise to know the common trash pump stand parts and their operations and recognize when to maintain them if you want to extract the maximum possible benefits from them.

There are many kinds of trash pump stand parts, each having a particular function in the overall operation of mechanical equipment. Here are the different kinds of trash pump stand parts you need to know about:


Controlled fluid flow is a fundamental aspect of different mechanical applications, facilitated by a volute. Volute refers to a centrifugal pump’s crucial spiral-shaped casing.

The liquid velocity increases in the pump casing as a pump’s impeller rotates. Fluid flow through the pump casing increases gradually due to the impeller’s off-center location with the volute.

Volute is a spiral-shaped casing of this pump

The fluid flow starts at the volute portion near the impeller, where the cross-sectional area is the smallest. As the fluid moves towards the discharge region, it builds pressure as it fills the greater area of the volute. As a result, the fluid experiences its highest pressure at the discharge point because the volute’s surface area is the largest.

Wear Ring

You can procure a replacement impeller and pump casing wear rings attached to the impeller to create a fine clearance between the two components, prolonging their life by preventing wear and tear.

A wear ring is a typical trash pump stand part used to seal the liquid pressure leakage points between the impeller or the pump casing and the entrance. An essential application of wear rings is in sewage pumps having closed impellers.

Pump Stands

Pump stands keep the bottom-settled debris and silt from obstructing the pump intake. Pump stands placed between the pit’s floor, and the pump facilitates lifting the sump pump from the pit’s bottom. The bases of sump pumps are typically oval and positioned several feet above the sump pit’s floor.


The impeller draws fluid into the pump by producing a vacuum, and its diameter plays a critical role in the overall performance of pumps. You may need to replace the impeller once it becomes damaged from handling large quantities of debris and trash. Pumping corrosive substances can also cause irreversible harm to the impeller.
