Waste handling pumps are specifically designed to manage high solid materials to ensure regulatory compliance for applications such as lagoon pond management, waste runoff, and more. At GATOR Pump, our waste handling solutions can withstand a variety of hostile pumping environments and are engineered to handle sludge, slurry, manure, and other solid materials commonly found in sewage.

Types Of Sludge, Slurry, and Manure Pumps

GATOR Pump specializes in manufacturing high-performance waste handling pumps for clients across several industries. Some of our solutions include:

Slurry Pumps

Typically used in mining, agricultural, and industrial processes, these centrifugal or submersible pumps are built to handle fluids that contain solid particles as well as acids, alcohols, solvents, or petroleum. Their heavy-duty construction and robust design allow them to withstand additional wear and tear that other pump types can’t handle.

Manure Pumps

Used in agricultural applications, manure pumps are designed to move manure from a pit, lagoon, or storage tank to a manure spreader, irrigation system, or other type of land application equipment.  

Sludge Pumps

Commonly referred to as slurry transfer pumps, sludge pumps are commonly used to transfer viscous and heavy liquids with a high solid content. To make the solids easier to transfer, sludge pumps often feature a chopper impeller that can break solids down into smaller pieces. 

Waste Water Handling Sludge Slurry Water Pumps

Sludge, Slurry, and Manure Pump Applications

GATOR Pumps are proven performers for entities and individuals who must handle high solid material in order to meet regulatory compliance standards for waste runoff, lagoon pond management, and mine settling pit drainage.

GATOR Pumps are engineered to withstand abrasive and caustic fluid properties that other pumps cannot tolerate in hostile pumping environments. We can stir, slurry, then transfer with the same GATOR Pump.

Applications for regular and emergency operations:

  • Dairy and feedlot manure lagoon management
  • Food plant pulp and waste processing
  • Cleaning of ponds, lagoons, or lakes of sludge and sediment
  • Landfill leachate
  • Sewage plant transfer pumping
  • Lime slurry mines

Industries Served

Our wastewater pumps are used in a wide range of industries:

Mining & Construction

Our waste handling pumps can withstand the corrosive and abrasive fluids commonly seen in the mining and construction industries. Common applications for our products include storm deluge pumps, mining pit settling pond water transfer pumps, sand and gravel quarries dewatering, and more.

Irrigation & Agriculture

To meet the needs of the irrigation and agriculture industries, our GATOR Pumps can work in ditches, canals, streams, ponds, lakes, and streams without the need for priming or suction lines. Our waste handling solutions can be used for everything from crop irrigation and hog waste management to catfish farms, peat bog harvesting, tail-water reuse, and much more.

Wetlands & Waterfowl Management

The U.S and State Fish and Wildlife Departments, and the U.S. Departments of the Interior and Reclamation rely on GATOR Pumps for managing the nation’s habitats and wetlands. Our durable and reliable waste handling solutions can be used for storm surge mitigation; aquatic weed control; and cleaning sludge and sediment from ponds, lakes, and lagoons. 

Oil & Gas

In the oil and gas industry, downtime is especially costly, which is why it’s essential to choose waste handling pumps that are built to withstand rugged conditions, manage heavy suspended solids, and resist abrasion and corrosion. GATOR Pumps are trusted for oil and gas applications such as water injection feed and transfer, emergency storm deluge flood dewatering, coal and lignite settling ponds, oilfield water and mud injection, drill mud heavy handling, and more.
