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
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.
