A high pressure pump that is used for spreading/transporting stored fluids, generally featuring a heavy-duty chopping system that cuts solids and other fibrous materials before pumping to prevent any blockages in the system.
What do umbilical pumps do?
Umbilical pumps are used across many industries for transporting fluids such as oil, wastewater or food products:
• Transporting slurry from storage to fields for fertilising purposes. • Transfer of liquid from lagoon to lagoon.
T-T’s umbilical pumps are designed for heavy-duty liquid pumping, with the inclusion of choppers to break down large solids.
How does a slurry pump work?
Slurry pumps use a combination of more free passage within the pump case and a higher torque motor to pump heavier liquids.
How far can you pump slurry?
The distance you can pump slurry is very much dependent on the pump used and the viscosity of the liquid, small pumps are capable of transferring a few hundred meters whilst some large units can cover over a thousand meters.
How do you pump slurry?
For slurry to be pumped, the liquid needs to be conditioned. This can include additional water or a mixer to generate a pumpable liquid.
How do you put a slurry pump on a tractor?
To mount a slurry pump on a tractor, you will require a frame that can be attached to the three-point linkage at the rear. Once attached, the pump can be driven by a PTO shaft.
