Patz Model 1512 Manure Pump - Overview & Features
Move Manure to Storage Quickly and Easily
End daily hauling; preserve valuable nutrients.
Storing manure has become attractive and profitable. The key to successful management of manure is an efficient system of moving the manure to storage.
The Patz Model 1512 Manure Pump is designed to handle manure ranging in consistency from free-flowing liquid to slurry with fine-cut bedding. Liquid manure has up to 5% solids, and slurry manure has 4% to 15% solids.
The optional in-line valve provides a positive shutoff to prevent backflow.
Saving time as well as manure nutrients is easy with the Patz Model 1512 Manure Pump. Manure drops into hopper from your gutter cleaner. Or scrape to the hopper. A plunger forces manure through PVC pipe to storage.
The Patz manure pump is designed for easy maintenance. Both the plunger and plunger sleeve can be removed for inspection. An optional in-line valve installs in the 12-inch or 15-inch PVC pipe buried up to 8 feet deep as a shutoff valve. Install if a backflow is possible. An optional flapper valve fits the end of the PVC pipe in the holding area to prevent manure from flowing back into the pipe.
Note: Manure too dry to flow may require the addition of water. Manure pumps are not designed for pumping box stall manure, ensilage, hay, wood shavings, lime, sand, crushed rock, etc.
