LSM Pumps – Peristaltic Pumps

Company Description:

LSM Pumps has many years of experience producing for different agriculture within the Ag industry, and as something new, they have started supplying pumps for biogas plants, where they pump biomass within the plant.

Biomass is a sustained organic material such as agriculture crops or city waste and industrial waste, also by-products from production of food or grease.

Examples of raw biomass from agriculture:

  • Fertilizer with fodder waste, such as cut straw or fiber
  • Organic fertilizer from wastewater treatment plants
  • Silage, corn, or sugar beets
  • Harvested by-products such as straw, fruit- and vegetable waste
  • Organic waste, meat or grease from slaughter plants

In this process LSM hose pumps are used to pump the raw biomass into the large tank where the process of fermentation take place. At larger plants the farm owner usually has different tanks with different types of raw biomass substances. Here it would be beneficial to invest in a LSM pump, which can be connected to the different tanks, where it can pump the raw biomass into the large tank where the process is.

Most traditional designs of pumps have difficulty managing biomasses, because is usually contains high amounts of sand or another solid material, such as vegetation waste, straw or the like, which has the tendency of clogging the hose when the direction of the flow is changed.

LSM Pumps runs by another principle – peristalsis, which can be compared by ”squeezing toothpaste out of the tube.” It is the same principle, which therefore allows fish being pumped without being squashed.

 LSM manufacturers pumps from 1/4″ up to 8″ – actually the world largest hose pump. Long distance pumping of manure is also a big part of their DNA.

Technology Description:

The hose pump is suitable for pumping of thicker fluids or larger particles. The pump can manage everything from sludge, glue, acids, concrete, fish, and food in large quantities. The pump is largely used in the agriculture-, biogas-, mine-, and fishing industry, since the pump can manage large particles.

Different from competitors, the LSM pump has the advantage of having larger pump cases, which means the hose is longer and therefore able to perform more per revolution. This means we can make the same volume as our competitors, but with lower speed, resulting in a longer lifespan of the gear and hose. This special role of adjustment gives the hose optimal compression, lower level of friction, better lubrication, and less power consumption than other pumps – especially pumps with collector shoes.

LSM offers four different types of hoses such as standard, natural, EPDM, Nitril, and food approved hose.

Technology Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators

NOTE: There are multiple technologies that are used as part of integrated manure management systems and yet are not manure management types on their own. The impact of these technologies on their own would be minimal or very difficult to quantify.

General Support & Other:

  • Can be an integral part of many manure management systems
  • Most projects have at least some equipment that supports operations of the main technology
  • This technology is not evaluated on its own, the NEAT Matrix for this technology is neutral unless utilized with other technologies.

Newtrient Comments/Opinions:

Newtrient is currently working with LSM to provide additional information on it's technology and installations. They have not received a 9-Point Score because they have no dairy installations in the US at this time.
