Pumping blood from the main blood sump to outdoor storage tank
- Debris such as ear tags frequently punctured the diaphragm of the single-stage electrical diaphragm pump used to drain the plant’s main blood sump.
- The suction lift required to handle the ear tags, blood clots and other debris caused premature fatiguing of the diaphragm pump.
- Because it managed the flow through the facility’s main blood sump, each failure of the diaphragm pump caused loss of production.
We installed a submersible 4” carbon steel Pitbull pump with vacuum assist to help pull blood clots and random debris into the inlet of the pump.
After experiencing routine failures with the diaphragm pump, the plant hasn’t recorded a single failure with the Pitbull industrial pump since its installation 1.5 years ago, resulting in less downtime and lower maintenance costs.
