The Grifter pump is now transferring sewage from the lodge and café facilities to the main sewerage system at the Yellowfoot Experience in Berkshire, UK.

“At any one time we can have very large numbers of people visiting our site, so we needed an improved and reliable sewage handling solution,” said Yellowfoot spokesman Simon Percival.
 
The Grifter, with a capacity range of between 1.7 and 4.0m³h, incorporates a tri-hammer macerator and a Moyno progressing cavity pump. It is designed specifically for small-scale sewage handling at remote facilities.
 
The positive displacement action of the Grifter’s pump means that head is independent of speed, which permits it to operate at slow speeds while still maintaining high head pressure. Moyno says this contributes towards low wear rates, increased component life and lower maintenance costs.
