New Umbilical Pumps for High Performance Slurry Spreading

Tractor mounted umbilical pump for slurry spreading.

In the agricultural industry, reliable and high-performing equipment is essential for farmers and contractors who face tough conditions daily. For a local agricultural contractor, an existing pump system was causing constant disruptions and high maintenance costs.

Thankfully, T-T and Johnsons of Cheadle were on hand to help.

The Problem

Agricultural contractors Tellwright’s Agri, in Alton, Staffordshire, was experiencing issues with their slurry spreading system. Their existing umbilical pump struggled to provide the flow rate required to effectively distribute heavy, fibrous slurry, causing premature wear, blocking and recurrent breakdowns.

Forced to complete frequent and costly repairs of their slurry system, the business was looking for a solution that would increase performance, reliably handle their heavy-duty jobs and monitor the volume of slurry being spread for efficient nutrient management.

The Solution

Through one of our local distributors, Johnsons of Cheadle, we specified and supplied a PTH 100KK TTE from Cri-Man, complete with a galvanised steel frame, recirculation manifold, hydraulic priming system and flow metre for a single source slurry spreading solution.

This umbilical pump was chosen for its hard-wearing cast iron construction and high-head pumping capabilities, able to achieve up to 155 metres head.

Featuring a heavy-duty double chopping system and a multi-channel impeller configuration, this umbilical pump effectively reduces the size of fibrous solids and allows them to pass through the pump without causing a blockage for reliable slurry spreading and reduced breakdowns.

The Director of Tellwright’s Agri commented:

“I recently purchased a PTH100KK TTE pump from Johnson’s of Cheadle to replace our troubled umbilical pump. 
As the director of an agricultural contracting business, we're heavily reliant on full operation of our kit.

I'm really pleased with our new umbilical pump as it copes with all aspects of slurry handling and spreading.

Compared to previous umbilical products that I've used from competitors, Cri-Man's PTH copes with much thicker consistencies. The support from my local dealer, Johnson's of Cheadle, has been second to none.”
