Reid & Harrison have been in the business of successfully pumping Liquid / Solid slurries for over 50 years.
For non-clogging and minimal maintenance the Yardmaster is Number One !! One of the most difficult problems put to Reid & Harrison was to shift chicken waste from a nearby chicken abattoir.
The waste, to be pumped by a Yardmaster pump, included chicken feathers and feet, offal and reject whole birds.
The problem was solved by the Heavy Duty Yardmaster with a 150mm inlet delivering through a 100mm outlet hose. The solids were screened off and the water recycled on a daily basis. This difficult pumping operation requires negligible maintenance and blockages are very rare.
This chicken pumping exercise is testimony to the diverse use Yardmaster Pumps have been put to over the years.
Dairy Farming - spreading cow shed wastes back onto pastures through an irrigation nozzle. Effluent is an excellent form of fertiliser.
Piggery - shifting the pig effluent and wastes away either irrigated back onto the pasture or into settling ponds.
Poultry Effluent - shifting chicken effluent from the sheds to screens or direct application to the field.
Abattoirs and Freezing Works - shifting slaughter board wastes including blood, offal, and meat trimmings, legging papers and fat.
Chemical Plants - shifting and mixing chemical products. Stainless Steel shafts and impellers can be fitted to handle acids.
Chicken Abattoirs - shifting feathers, feet and offal as well as whole reject birds.
Dairy Industry - shifting waste products from the factory to ponds or fields.
Food Processing Factories - shifting wastes and washing fluids.
Fish Industry - shifting fish heads and tails, skins and offal.
Quarries and Mines - shifting flood water, gravel and coal.
Sewage Treatment Plants - shifting comminute and raw sewage
Sawmills - shifting sawdust away from the plant.
Wool Scourers - shifting the wood washings away from the scouring plant.
Coal Mines - shifting coal from the mine face to the point of delivery.
Where there is a combination of slurry waste and solids and water, then a Yardmaster will shift it efficiently and economically without a major clogging problem.
