Topic Manure Pumps

One of the questions we most frequently here from farmers and ranchers is how to pump cow, sheep, hog or horse manure from one area of their farm to another using the right pumping equipment.  Most of the time, manure based slurries contain solids content ranging from 5% -15% solids. If your application is on the lower end of this range,  Mud Sucker FA Series are commonly used on farms to transfer slurry based or wet liquids to dry manure piles that absorb moisture. These two inch or three inch pumps can pump from 25-80 US GPM and can discharge from 300-500 feet on level land; we can help you determine the suction and discharge loss when pumping on inclines

Fueling Vehicles With Waste Vegetable Oil

Can more buses convert to biofuels?

Can more buses convert to biofuels?

Oil prices are on the rise again leading businesses and consumers to search for economical and environmentally friendly alternatives to fueling vehicles, homes and businesses. More and more of our customers are looking for pump package solutions to feed waste vegetable oil from grease traps and holding tanks to power vehicles and homes. Pumps help to filter waste vegetable oil such as restaurant waste trap grease so that these fluids can be used as fuel.

One of our customers is a school bus operator in Lee County, Florida and is experimenting with fueling a portion of their school bus fleet with waste vegetable oil.  The challenge is how to create a pumping system with limited space and budget constraints.  Our pump design engineers are in the final stages of creating a rear bumper mounted system using our Mud-Sucker FA Series pumps to assist in pumping purified waste vegetable oil to a holding tank located beneath the bus. Using an in-line piping design, we have reduced the amount of space needed while preserving the pumping power of the Mud Sucker brand pumps. This test project is one more step forward for Lee County’s environmental initiatives and a testimony to the Mud-Sucker’s versatility. Continue reading

Q: “I need to outfit our 200 slip marina with new pump stations with one larger pump to feed the sewage up a 100 ft. hill at approx. a 6 degree slope.
