The FLUMP (floating lagoon pumper) solves an industrial and municipal environmental problem in a low-cost, efficient manner. The FLUMP removes settled wastes and other by-products that no longer may be scattered over the countryside, but, instead, must be contained in settling ponds or lagoons, built to prevent wastes from leaching into the water-table.
Built tough to ensure dependable service in harsh environments, Crisafulli FLUMPs are simple to operate, easy to transport and are fabricated in a variety of materials, including special metals for abrasive or corrosive sludge. Crisafulli’s specialists have solved liquid waste problems for more than thirty years. Call us for standard applications -- or when no standard product will solve your problem. We will work with you to produce a Crisafulli Sludge Removal System that meets the specific requirements of your application.
Use the FLUMP to clean your pond or lagoon of sludge, sediment, biosolids or residuals.

"We would like to thank you for your wonderful FLUMP. We have been dealing with our wet sludge lagoon for many years and have not always been totally successful. We found your system to be of excellent design and robust construction. The control system is direct and easy to understand."
David Miller, Division Head
