Landia pumps and mixers go the distance at The Grosvenor Estate


Landia pumps and mixers at Grosvenor Estate

Pumps and mixers from Landia UK, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2014, are helping Grosvenor Farms to efficiently and effectively process its slurry.

Part of the Grosvenor Estate that represents the assets owned by trusts on behalf of the Grosvenor family, headed by the sixth Duke of Westminster, Grosvenor Farms is a 6,000 acre farm that produces milk, cereals and potatoes.

Working in close conjunction with Midland Slurry Systems, who offer a turnkey operation for slurry treatment and pollution control, two Landia pumps and a mixer are in operation at the Estate’s Grange Farm in Churton near Chester. A 3.3m Longshaft Landia MPG pump (15.0kW 4”) and a high pressure Landia DG pump (3.0kW) combine with a Landia POP mixer (5.5kW 300rpm) to mix and reduce the density of thick cattle slurry from young stock so that it can be pumped to a gantry-mounted separator. Separated liquor is held and then either returned to the reception pit for further thinning or pumped several hundred metres to a storage lagoon.

David Craven, the health and safety representative and building maintenance manager of Grosvenor Farms, said: “We have no disruption with Landia’s pumps and mixers, which are certainly built to last. They are also very capable of handling the long distances that we need to pump our slurry”.

Family-run business Midland Slurry Systems, who have been working with the Grosvenor Estate for over six years, have also teamed up with Landia at Chapel House Farm in Bruera near Chester. Here, a Landia pump is utilised to send used run-off water and wastewater from parlour washing to a reception pit several hundred metres away (via a pre-installed 4” irrigation main) to a 25 million gallon storage lagoon.
