JAMESWAY Liqui-Trans Piston Pumps


The Liqui-Trans is capable of transferring liquid manure very long distances with low power requirements. The hydraulic power unit is available in 5HP or 7.5HP models, which makes the Liqui-Trans an excellent choice for use with single phase electricity or anywhere that power availability may be limited.

There are two models of Liqui-Trans pump available: Standard Duty is equipped with a 3" diameter hydraulic cylinder and the Heavy Duty, which is equipped with a 4" hydraulic cylinder. Both models use a heavy gauge 20" diameter stainless steel pumping cylinder and urethane-edged flapper doors.

Liqui-Trans pumps may be mounted in a dry pit beside a reception pit with a suction tube through the wall, or at floor level with a suction downspout extending down into the reception pit. Depending on the distance to the storage, the output is either 6" or 8" diameter PVC pipe. This small diameter pipe makes installation very economical.

Liqui-Trans pumps are intended for use only in very liquid manure (maximum 10% solids) with no long bedding. Manure in the reception pit may be preconditioned to meet these requirements by adding waste water and/or by homogenizing if required. The Jamesway Electric Prop Agitator is commonly used with the Liqui-Trans to precondition the manure.

Sand bedding is not recommended with the Liqui-Trans system. The high water content required in the manure will cause sand to settle in the transfer pipe and rapidly block the pipe. The exception is when the Liqui-Trans is used to lift material into a separator system. A Jamesway representative will review your plan and recommend a self-cleaning pipe configuration for these systems.

Air Risers may be installed along the length of the pipe. This kit includes a 6" diameter pipe that is attached in a Y-joint to the manure pipe and runs vertically to end above ground level. Compressed air may then be used to rapidly push manure forward and scour the pipe clean. Air risers are recommended with on any system with a long pipe to allow easy access in case of line plugging.

Please contact Jamesway for review and recommendations for systems exceeding 1000 feet of pipe, or systems with extreme vertical lift.
