If you came to this page, you already know that there is
money in manure.
If you 'pump pig' you also know that it is corrosive and
unpleasant (especially to electronic equipment). And that most available
pump-shutdown systems are expensive, and difficult to operate when
'confinement by-product liquid' is spraying all over the place.
We offer a simple but effective solution for EPA required
kill functions that won't break the bank. Single-function kill boxes can be
added to any new or existing engine on a primary pit or booster pump. We are
very familiar with 'Green' ECM controls, with or without Murphy
systems, and can build boxes to control almost any other power source.
No more trying to dial a DTMF (telephone) 911 tone from a
microphone that may not be in the best of shape, and hope it works. Select
the pump to shut down on the same radio you talk on, and 'blip' the mic.
That's it, easy and less than one second. The pump receiver even transmits a
confirmation tone that it is shutting down the pump.
Primary and booster pumps can have a common kill-code, or
each can be on its own - you can set up each job without additional
programming. Nearby auxiliary stirring pumps can be wired to the pump kill
box. There is no practical limit to the number of radio controlled pumps in
your system, so a crew in 'earshot' of others won't shut down the wrong
Each system is built to order (figure a week), mounted in
a corrosion resistant NEMA 4X polycarbonate enclosure, and is delivered to
you with simple easy to wire instructions. Green ECM engines include
OEM Duetsch Connections for fast installation. Green ECM's may
require additional programming codes. 'Idle - not kill" is available for
some engines - contact us for details.
Pump faster-slower-idle options are available. Murphy
compound pressure, oil level and other sensors can be easily connected to
the radio kill box without use of a separate Murphy control box. Everything
needed to perform a shutdown is programmed in the radio itself - no external
boxes to deal with, and all of our mobile (and portable) radios can be used
to shut down engines.
Pricing starts around $1,500.00 (depending on engine type)
for the complete pump kill box.
A mobile radio with talk and kill functions will run you
about $350.00, including antenna. (VHF and UHF versions are available.)
Manure resistant portable radios are also available, with or without kill
