By installing the right pump, which can increase the vacuum power, the problem is solved. In newer pens with 315 mm slurry pipes, more straw can be used. How much depends entirely on the type of straw, how often it is drained, how much is washed and the number of pigs in the pen. However, here it is possible to mount a pump directly on the slurry pipe from the barn: it can increase the vacuum effect when sluicing takes place and alleviate many problems. A complete solution with a pump and PE pump well is easy and there is no need to invest in a reception tank.
In several newer welfare stalls, there is line play in the slurry channels, which is required when larger amounts of straw are used. Here, slurry and straw are scraped into the reception tank. Most often it is supplied in a transverse channel, where backflushing takes place. When more straw comes into the reception tank, mixing will often be required. We recommend placing a mixer and a pump with a knife system in the reception tank. To solve problems with incorrect slurry handling and a high time consumption, automatic control can be an excellent solution. It even handles mixing and over-pumping at the right time. It provides less wear on the pump and mixers at the same time as there is also a great time saving and an easier transition for new employees who need to be trained in the farm’s slurry handling when everything is running automatically. Landia supplies slurry pumps, all with a knife system, mixer, electric controls and wells.
