Wastecorp didn’t invent the diaphragm pump but when we introduced the Mud Sucker diaphragm pump product line almost 25 years ago we set out to innovate and radically transform how customers transfer fluids. One of our first Mud Sucker models, the 4BW-MDD Series is a walking beam style pump that uses a heavy duty piston motion to move heavier slurries found in coal mine, pulp and paper and municipal sewage applications. What makes this pump so special is its ability to transfer heavy solids with a choice of Siemens gear box and motor, gas or diesel engine (Yanmar diesel model shown).
