Matamata-based Reid & Harrison, well known for its Yardmaster pump brand, has evolved from just being a pump supplier to a full provider for dairy effluent system needs, offering farmers a full service from concept through design, to installation and ongoing maintenance.

R&H has expanded their product range to include shore mounted, self-priming pumps, a range of submersible pumps and stirrers with mounting infrastructure and an increased range of separators and automation with HALO supersmart control and monitoring.

An increased service offering includes accredited dairy effluent design, warrant of fitness certifications, the position of endorsed effluent systems provider with Farm Source and a nationwide dealer network to provide local services and aftermarket support.

In line with its policy of introducing new innovations or alternative solutions, Yardmaster has released their Progressive Cavity (PC) pump, which compared to centrifugal-based pumps, will move effluent with the focus on power efficiency and constant flow.

Reid & Harrison also has a nationwide dealer network to provide aftermarket service.

The PC versions can deliver pressure up to heads of 240 metres, volumes up to 55 cubic metres per hour and suction lift of up to 8.5 metres. Constructed of cast iron and equipped with chrome plated rotors and natural rubber stators, the PC pump has six rotor speed options and power options from 4kW to 30kW.

Assembled and tested in New Zealand, the range offers users a shore-mounted solution for easier and safer maintenance, constant flow rates over large distances and lower running costs.

The evolution of its pumping solutions means R&H believes the result will mean the right pump (and related equipment) can be selected for the customer’s needs, rather than only offering what is available to the customer, with the end result being cost savings, easier maintenance and performance meeting compliance and customer outcomes.
