PTO-operated Rotary Lobe Pumps are mounted on a three-point hitch at a soil and water association to discharge sludge from dredgers and transfer it to fields and pools for draining. The pressure from the the vessel's rotary pump is sufficient to reach the Boerger Rotary Lobe Pump, which then has to convey the sludge up to another 1,000 meters. Since the Boerger Rotary Lobe Pumps have been in use, the pumping destinations can be further away and the dredger is able to operate at optimum efficiency.
