What is the difference between centrifugal slurry pump and slurry pump?

Today, I saw that some customers came to the company's website www.cnsmepump.com through centrifugal slurry pumps. I must have a lot of doubts in my heart. What is the difference between centrifugal slurry pumps and slurry pumps?
In fact, in principle, the slurry pump belongs to a centrifugal pump. Because the working principle of the slurry pump is to use the centrifugal force of the impeller to achieve the conveying of the slurry.
Most centrifugal pumps are mainly used to transport media with physical properties similar to water, that is, no particles, or particles are very small.
The main working parts of the centrifugal pump are the impeller and the pump housing, the impeller is mounted on the shaft, and is connected with the motor or other prime movers to form a whole. When the motor drives the impeller to rotate, the blade in the impeller forces the slurry to rotate, that is, the blade of the impeller does work on the slurry along its direction of movement, thus forcing the potential energy and kinetic energy of the slurry to increase. At the same time, the slurry under the action of inertial force, flows from the center to the periphery of the impeller, and flows out at a very high speed, this process is the pressure water process. The centrifugal pump relies on the action of the rotating impeller on the liquid to transfer the mechanical energy of the prime mover to the liquid.
Due to the role of the centrifugal pump liquid flow from the impeller inlet to the outlet process, the speed and pressure energy are increased, the liquid discharged by the impeller through the pressure chamber, most of the speed can be converted into pressure energy, and then transported out along the discharge pipeline, at this time, the inlet of the impeller due to the discharge of liquid to form a vacuum or low pressure, The liquid in the suction pool is pressed into the inlet of the impeller under the action of the liquid surface pressure (atmospheric pressure), so the rotating impeller continuously inhales and exhautes the liquid. In fact, the slurry pump is also through the centrifugal force formed by the impeller rotation to transport the slurry. So the slurry pump is also a centrifugal pump. In this way, the relationship between the slurry pump and the centrifugal pump will be clear.
The reason why the slurry pump is called the slurry pump is defined from the conveying medium. As the name suggests, the slurry transported by the slurry pump is a mixture of solid particles containing slag and water.
