Hi, we just bought a marina in Maryland and the pump out we have needs replacement. We are planning on expanding the marina with about 50 more boat slips which will bring our total to about 121. What we would like to explore is a marine vacuum pump out system that can pump out more than one boat at a time. We got quotes on peristaltic marine pumps and my buddy who has a marina doesn’t like them; so that’s out. The previous marina owner also told us Continue reading
The details of the project called on the requirement of pumps to transfer ground up seafood shells, grease trap waste, utensils, animal renderings, wastewater and more. In this application, the waste is unloaded from a tanker into a waste pit. The waste is then transferred to a conveyor system which then separates most of the foreign objects like utensils, large solids, plastic bags and more. The remaining waste is sent through the Sludge Master plunger pump and then to the digesters of the wastewater treatment plant. With millions of people visiting Orlando resorts and theme parks every year, this amounts to a lot of waste, as tanker trucks deliver new loads of slurry like liquid waste around the clock.

If your facility is considering a food processing pump technology then check out this video case study here. The video shows a Mud Sucker Diaphragm pump at a poultry processing plant transferring up to 110 GPM. You may not want to view until after lunch because it shows the tough chicken waste that the Mud Sucker B Series can transfer like blood, beaks, fat and feet.
One of the trending customer requests this past year is custom diaphragm pump stations equipped with control panels and mobility options. To give you an example (and some ideas for your own pump application), one of our customers who happens to be one of the largest snack food producers globally, contacted Wastecorp’s engineering department asking for design proposals for a 3″ diaphragm pump out system complete with a mobility kit and the ability to directly control the pump operation. The diaphragm pump unit needed to be manufactured to maneuver easily on the factory floor aisles with custom dimensions. The pumps travel throughout the facility transferring chocolate based waste slurry and vegetable oil residues.
Look to the left and this is what our pump engineers came up with. This is the 3FA-EC diaphragm pump control panel model with e-stop, push bottom start and a specialized float system which detects when the pump should begin operating and automatically turn off. The customer ended up ordering 10 units for other facilities. The best part of this case study is that Wastecorp and our customer are in constant contact reviewing the benefits of the pump system and making design changes for future facility needs. We work one-on-one for custom results and constant improvement.
