Pumping sludge with a Schwing sludge pumpSludge Pumps & Muck Pumps

When dealing with sludges and materials with a high solids content, Schwing Stetter Sludge and Muck pumps can help you clean up.


Schwing Stetter is one of the leading manufacturers of turn-key systems for the conveyance and storage of sludges and materials with high solids content worldwide.


Schwing Sludge and Muck Pumps come in a variety of configuratiuons for a large variety of pumping tasks.

PumpSchwing Stetter offer two control systems: The patented Rock Valve as used in our Concrete Pumps and also the poppet valve system which isolates the pump from the pipeline at the completion of a pumping stroke and prevents material from back-flowing into the pump and decreasing its efficiency.

The cylinder that is being charged has its pressure Poppet closed and suction Poppet open. When the pump completes its cycle, the Poppets change their position such that the open Poppets close and the closed Poppets open (see animation - click on it to expand).
