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

A case in point is the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) need for professionally designed diaphragm pumps to serve the needs of its cattle inspection stations in various parts of the country. After a trial run of trash pumps failed to produce the required results, the USDA called on Wastecorp to design a pump that can incorporate severe duty lifecycle requirements to pump wastewater containing manure, insecticide, chemicals, hair and other solids.

In some of these operations cattle are offloaded to the inspection station and receive a thorough examination by veternarians and USDA staff to check for desease causing insects and other abnormailities which may render the animal unsuitable for human consumption or pose a threat to other livestock. After the initial examination, cattle are sent to a bath that includes an insecticide designed to control fever ticks, scabbies, horn flies, lice, screw worms and more which is a constant battle for government inspectors and ranchers alike. The animal is fully immersed in the solution and then enters a controlled area where the insecticide can do its job. After a predetermined period for the cattle to dry, they are released to enter into the next stage of the food processing system.

After the inspection and insecticide application stages are complete the The cattle baths must be carefully pumped out with solids and slurry separted from the wastewater which is trucked out for further treatment. At this facility, a potty wand is connected to the Mud Sucker to prevent large items like hoofs and horns from entering the pump. Any remaining solids are sent through the pump to a grinder with the remaining fluid achieving a slurry like consistency. With new cattle continuously entering the inspection process, the USDA expects a highly productive pump that requires little maintenance and even less down downtime. The Mud Sucker B Series professional delivers.
