Brain Industries’ Mudskipper© Pump is our smallest and most popular pump. Our Mudskipper pump is also known as a Swilly Buster or Mud Pump.
It is a highly portable, compressed air powered, unit for the vacuum recovery and pressure discharge of slurries and flowable sludges containing solids up to 60mm in lump size.
With vacuum capability of up to 18” Hg (60 kPa) the Mudskipper© can handle viscous materials with a high concentration of solids.
Use it with a Mudskipper© Sieve Bend to continually separate solids while pumping.
You can hire or buy Brain’s Mudskipper© Pump.
Mudskipper© pumps keep on pumping where other pumps fail.
Flow rates of up to 14m³ per hour. Discharge up to 0.5km.
Actual performance depends on the type of material. It will recover flowable non-viscous slurries at a higher rate than more viscous sludges with higher solids content.
For light sludges, these results are typical.
Use our Mudskipper© pumps in these sectors.
Need a portable pump to easily vacuum and discharge sludges, slurries, and mud with solids up to 60mm?
Separate solids from sludge and slurry.
The bend removes the bulk of the water in the discharge feed from the pump. All solids larger than 0.4mm are returned onto the belt or collected for disposal. The underflow water exits by gravity or may be pumped away.
The bend can straddle a belt conveyor or be fixed to the roof in underground mines.
