The article focuses on the capability of hose pumps to move abrasive fluids while reducing life cycle costs. It was stated that hose pumps are peristaltic pumps or positive displacement (PD) pumps that are becoming popular choice for transferring abrasive dairy waste, such as sand-laden manure. The author states that hose pumps are unique because they have no seals, valves, or any moving parts. In addition, other uses of hose pumps are discussed.
