More power, more flow, more reach, more capabilities in one machine: New Puck Force Feed Tandem Trailer

When it comes to maximum capabilities in one package, the new Puck Force Feed Tandem Trailer configuration gets the job done.

It is packaged with a high-pressure 6819MPC Cornell pump and the Caterpillar 13B U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final-certified engine. With the six-cylinder, 12.5-litre displacement, the engine delivers 577 hp (430 kW). Couple this to the larger submersible 10NNWH pump at the end of the boom, and you are on the way to effectively producing 3,500-plus GPM flow at current U.S. EPA emissions requirements.

With a tandem axle trailer configuration, the new Force Feed boom extends 15 feet longer than the previous designs and ultimately offers 45 feet of total reach.

The outflow is near the ground in the rear. For purging, the “pig” launcher port is located on the passenger side. It is isolated to allow plenty of room for the air compressor to be paired with the machine during pumping operations and increases safety by keeping the operator distanced from the pressurized hose. Finally, the lagoon feeder connection is immediately below the hydrostat hookups required to pair with a lagoon feeder attachment.

With the tandem axle trailer platform, the boom device can reach out from either side as well as the rear. Additionally, toward the front of the trailer, there is open space to have storage. Located beneath this area is the large fuel tank (375 gallons or 1,419 litres) for extended pumping.

The boom design provides the diverse flexibility for multiple liquid storage scenarios and the remote-control operation simplifies setting the boom in tight situations or small spaces. Plus, as standard, the pump controls allow automated operation with remote capabilities and monitoring via a single screen and a simple, intuitive, user-friendly design. New touch keypad controls allow the downriggers and gates to be controlled at the touch of a button without starting the engine.

BouMatic composite shells

New BouMatic composite shells offer less weight, less stress for cows

BouMatic’s new lightweight nylon-composite shells, the LWX00 Shell, weigh in at only 2.8 ounces compared to 6.5 ounces for stainless steel. When used in the company’s full system, claw weight is reduced by 2 pounds.

Other benefits include:

  • No twisting – With no restrictions or moving parts, the unit is cleaned easily and will take less chemicals to clean.

  • Universal – This shell will work on any Magnum or Turbo liner.

  • Finish – The right amount of texture so the shell is easy to handle.

  • Cold-weather comfort for both cow and dairy staff. Nylon shells retain heat better than stainless steel.

Fairbanks Scales Inc. announces its new HC Lift Deck Modular Truck Scales, a common-sense truck weighing solution for waste transfer applications. The company also announced its new FB9000 Series Conveyor Belt Scales, a reliable and easy-to-install weighing solution for idler-style in-motion conveying applications.

Not only can the HC Lift Deck’s weighing modules be individually lifted and removed with a front loader or other lightweight lifting equipment, recalibrating the scale is never required when a module is set back in place. Simply reset the module and get right back to weighing.

Features include:

  • Removable deck
  • Dual remote display
  • Narrow modules
  • Self-centering cones
  • Remotely located electronics
  • Customizable configurations

The belt scale is a simple field-assembled design that can be installed in the field. It is available in the most common configurations with the instrumentation and display to service most scale needs. With convenient options like the self-storing test weight assembly, the belt scales prove to be user- and service-friendly and avoid the hassle of prefabricated modular systems.

Belt scale

The belt scale’s self-aligning weighbridge accurately measures the force of material, without the use of levers, linkage or other mechanical apparatus known to product non-linearity. Applications include:

  • Stationary plants
  • Portable with angle sensor
  • Catenary idler
  • Load-out
