Application

Evacuates liquid dairy manure of a consistency between ¼" (6 mm) and 1½" (38 mm) from free stall barn up to the main storage through underground line.
Performance varies according to installation, manure consistency, quantity and type of bedding. Water addition may be required required.

Futuro Models

  • Installed in a service pit with a hopper - a hopper is fixed to the intake of the pump when the pump is to be fed by a scraper installed in a gutter or by a skid-steer loader.
  • Installed with a suction pipe - a suction pipe is fixed to the intake of the pump when the pump is to be gravity fed from a reception pit.

Working Principle

During the siphoning cycle (piston up stroke) the vacuum effect and pressure of manure force the discharge flapper to close and the intake flapper to open which fills the evacuation chamber with manure.
During the evacuation cycle (piston down stroke) the pressure forces the intake flapper to close and the discharge flapper to open to transfer the manure from the evacuation chamber to the discharge line.
A manual guillotine shut-off valve on the intake and discharge prevents flow back through the pump when not in use and isolates the pump for maintenance. A hydraulic control for the guillotine valves is available in option.

Hydraulic Power Unit

  • 5 or 7.5 HP (5.5 or 3.7 kW).
  • Electric oil heater available.

Electromix System - Single Piston Pump

The Electromix System includes a low power pump with hydraulically driven piston and the Electromix agitator. This system evacuates dairy manure that has been fully agitated and homogenized through underground line from tied stall or from free stall barns up to the main storage. The manure may contain bedding such as straw or sawdust of a consistency not exceeding 1½" (38 mm). The Electromix pump can be either wall mounted or floor mounted. Most of the time, the Electromix system requires a liquid return line from the main storage back to the reception pit in order to precondition the manure before transfer. It allows minimizing water addition, thus reducing the volume of storage. Have a look at the many possibilities that the Electromix System offers to definitely ease manure handling.
