The Solid-Trans is capable of transferring solid or
semi-solid bedded manure long distances with low power requirements. The 7.5HP hydraulic
power unit makes the Solid-Trans an excellent choice for use with single phase electricity or
anywhere that power availability may be limited.
The Solid-Trans pump is equipped with a 5" hydraulic
cylinder and a heavy gauge 20" diameter stainless steel pumping cylinder. The Solid-Trans has
a 20" inlet and a 16" diameter outlet, and the pumping chamber is equipped with heavy
guillotine doors. Manure is drawn into the pump chamber during the upstroke and pushed out
during the downstroke. The guillotines act as check valves so that manure may only flow
toward the storage.
Solid-Trans pumps are mounted in a dry pit and are
equipped with a hopper inlet. The output is 16" diameter SDR26 PVC pipe. Steel 16" pipe is
Solid-Trans pumps are intended for use in manure with
long or short bedding. The Solid-Trans may not be used with sand bedding. Depending on the
amount and type of bedding used, it is often necessary to add some water into the hopper or
the manure gutter while the pump is running. This water helps material slide into the inlet
pipe and maintains a suction seal in the inlet.
