HOLIDAYSBURG, Pa.—McLanahan Corporation has developed the 44 Super Magnum Sand Pump, engineered and built specifically to meet the pumping needs of sand-bedded dairies. It is a vertical-shaft, centrifugal pump designed to withstand the rigorous demands of pumping sand and manure with minimal wear on the wet end components. The pump received a 2010 AE50 award for agricultural engineering innovations and was chosen as one of the Top 10 New Products at the 2010 World Ag Expo.
The 44 Super Magnum Sand Pump utilizes replaceable, rubber linings to protect the split casings and a rubber-lined impeller to dramatically extend wear life in abrasive environments as compared to conventional manure pumps of steel construction. The shafts and bearings operate in an oil bath and are separated from the sand and manure by a heavy-duty mechanical seal.
The pump uses technology that has been proven in the mining and wastewater industries and has been adapted to fit the needs of the dairy and agriculture markets. Each pump is sized according to the application's needs and conditions.
