Cool Waste oil collection pumping system from our Customers

Waste Oil Pump

Waste Oil Pump

Mud Sucker 2FA Series Diaphragm pumps are known for their versatility for oil collection systems, especially waste trap grease, transmission fluids and motor oil. Many of our innovative customers also design their own collection systems. In the installation you see here, one customer used two Mud-Sucker 2FA-EC (electric) diaphragm pumps to set up a new waste oil collection system at a city bus depot. The bus depot collects motor oil and transmission oil in drain pans. The waste is then gravity fed into two, 275 gallon collection tanks, each tank having a pump and float system. The oil is then sucked up and discharged into a common 2″ riser travelling up 25 feet. The oil travels horizontally for 161 feet and then drops 25 feet into a larger storage tank. The suction and discharge height are well within the limits of these Mud-Sucker pumps.

Waste oil recovery and pumping is a hot topic right now in the world of pumps. For facilities with multiple storage tanks or sites, a portable pump may be a great option considering the alternatives. Traditionally vacuum pump trucks have been one of the only options available to transfer waste oil from tanks, cargo, tanker ships, on site storage facilities and more. This is no longer the case.

The Mud Sucker diaphragm pump system has a variety of sizes and options to transfer all kinds of waste oils no matter the size of the job or facility. For example, at this North American military base (pictured left), the customer uses Wastecorp’s Mud-Sucker 2F-MC diaphragm pump with wheel kit. This powerful pump is moved easily from site to site and transfers up to 25 GPM. With few moving parts and a contoured velocity channel, this pump is virtually maintenance free.
