This suction device provides superb suction of water and sludge and offers huge time savings for cleaning out your water tanks and sludge collection devices. It is available in two sizes and configurations.
1) Small head (2" diameter suction area) with flexible pipe for tight, hard to reach areas.
Dimensions: 4" x 5.5" x 55"
Suction area: 3.14 sq. inches
Weight: 10.5 lbs
2) Large head (5" diameter suction area) with rigid pipe is the standard design.
Dimensions: 4" x 5.5" x 56.5"
Suction area: 9.6 sq. inches
Weight: 16 lbs.
Removal: approximately 3 cubic feet per minute of liquid, slightly slower for sludge.
We emptied to a 3" depth a tank measuring 4' x 28" x 3 feet of sludge depth in approximately 15-20 minutes
(approximately 27 cubic feet of water and sludge)
Note: Because of the shape of the suction head, the last few inches of water cannot be removed, however, sludge can be removed with sufficient water in place as the water is used to provide proper suction.
