    Thoughts on how many GPH is about right for an A52?

    Well a old prospector told me if you are running a Keene power sluice conversion on the A52 that a 400pgh pump is enough but I personally am going to run at least a 1600gph pump on mine when I get it. Seems to me 400gph is on the really light side as far as a pump flow goes.

    i bought a pump for my keene A52 and the guy at golden detectors in colorado told me that it needed to be 2200gph. the pump i bought has a restrictor that brings it down to 1600gph.

    i have to run it at 2200 in order to get the material to go through the sluice. i also put a ball value inline so i could control it.

    Do you use it to process you materials at home? I built a miller table/cleaning sluice that works ok, but would like to dial in this 52 that my buddy gave me to recirc take home materials in bad weather. All this stuff has been classified to -30 before I finish it. Kinda slow in a pan and my table is not perfect, needs some patience and tuning.

    I love the way you think. I have buckets at home for the exact same reason.

    With a nice ball valve you can adjust the flow...if you have enough flow to begin with. I'd go super big on the pump 'cause (in my case) my 12volt deepcycle starts to lessen the pumps rpm...thus the ball valve to open up more flow. If you have household power (I don't) then ignore my rattle...
