Nuhn Header Series lagoon pump

The Header Series lagoon pump is the latest innovation from Nuhn Industries.

It is an efficient and high-volume pump with a rating of 7,000 gallons per minute at 140 horsepower and 5,500 gallons per minute at 95 horsepower. The four-inch nozzle creates 45 pounds per square inch of pressure with high volumes.
The lagoon pump features triple ported and lofted housing, remote control, a heavy lift undercarriage, and heavy commercial outriggers.

MP-220

MP-220 helps break down the solids that build up in the manure pond both on the bottom and at the top and helps to reduce the offensive odor that comes from manure ponds.

Solids buildup in manure ponds is a major problem as it reduces pond capacity. When pond storage is inadequate, new ponds must be added at considerable cost to the producer. MP-220 helps to break down the solids that build up in manure ponds by changing the lagoon from anaerobic to aerobic conditions, which turns the solids into an easy-flowing solution that can be pumped on the fields. MP-220 can also help to increase manure lagoon capacity.

All manure pits or lagoons contain undigested feed that has passed through the digestive system of the cow. This magnifies the problem of manure decomposition. As this manure breaks down, it radiates a strong odor created by ammonia gas buildup. This offensive smell creates environmental problems.

MP-220 helps to reduce the offensive odor that comes from manure lagoons by changing it from anaerobic conditions to aerobic conditions using a non-sulfur cycle. Generally, decomposition is accomplished through the sulfur cycle, which helps to create the offensive odors. Since MP-220 uses a non-sulfur cycle, offensive odors are reduced. Also, as the MP-220 breaks down the manure solids in the pond, both carbon dioxide and nitrogen are released into the air.


Director™ I Floating Baffles

Director I Floating Baffles can improve wastewater treatment lagoon efficiency. Enhanced hydraulic flow patterns increase effective treatment area from less than 20 percent to more than 95 percent of the lagoon. The extending treatment time significantly reduces biological oxygen demand (BOD) and total suspended solids (TSS), improves aeration and allows contaminants and solids to settle.

The floating baffle is designed to improve flow diversion, increase retention time and provide improved bottom anchoring and prevent short-circuiting in treatment lagoons in wastewater applications.
