Handling slurry with sand

Sandy slurry wears on pumps and mixers. With Landia’s products, you are guaranteed a long life and effective treatment of the slurry.

A strong pump with a long life

Sand is often used as a base in bed stalls, but it produces a sandy slurry that causes increased wear on pumps and mixers. Landia has developed several pumps and mixers, which are made of durable materials. Therefore, they have a significantly longer service life compared to other manufacturers. To further reduce wear, we recommend that you use automatic control with a level sensor. It keeps operating hours to an absolute minimum. If the slurry is to be pumped far or through an increase in terrain upslope, then a pump can be inserted as a booster pump.

Advantages

• Special hardening of wearing parts prolongs the life of the pump and mixer. 
• Automatic control means fewer operating hours on pumps and mixers and so less wear.
• Many excellent experiences with handling sand slurry.
• Increased welfare for cows.

 

The external cutting system of the Landia chopper pump works a treat at RFM, where it is certainly put through its paces after the auction. During the high season it operates for over 100 hours per week, with no blockages, requiring only very basic routine maintenance, once per year.

- says Giles Russell, Managing Director of Midland Slurry Systems.
