has filtering any type of contaminated slurry waste been faster,
easier or more reliable. Equipped with a 10 foot hose
standard to extract the slurry waste from any size container.
A standard garden hose connection on the output allows you to send
the crystal clear water to drain, or to reuse the
water or use it wash down your equipment. The compacted
debris cakes are easily dropped from the filter plates into a
tray, sludge bag, wheel barrel or garbage can lined with a
system can be used for any slurry water application.
Specifically designed for the demanding world of concrete -
options include pH adjustment, larger pumps, slab carts, and
trailer mounts. A Mudhen is portable, flexible and can be
configured and utilized in many ways.
Mudhen will pull slurry water out of your containers, from a pool or any
size vessel. It can clean the water and put it to drain, or
recycle it back to a container for reuse in your concrete
your needs - wheel it into an elevator or through a doorway
into your work area. These machines are used just to extract
and clean a dumpster, pit, or water tank and continue to
re-circulate the extracted / filtered water until the container or
vessee is clean.

How it Works:
Set-Up, Operation, Filtration Efficiency.
Mudhens are very simple and can be operated out of the box with
virtually no reference to the instructions, although an easy to use owners manual and DVD
or position the Mudhen near the slurry.
1" x 10’ HD flexible suction line is placed into any
holds slurry. Your air compressor (a portable 1 hp air
compressor is fine for processing around 4 gallons per minute,
a large compressor will increase your output) supplies all the
power the pump and system needs.
filter screens on the plates capture the solids and the clean water exits
the system through a standard 3/4" garden hose
to fill any container you have for reusing or disposal of the
crystal clear water. The operator can leave the unit
while it is processing slurry.
the solids have completely filled the screens, you'll hear the air pump
trying to stall (from back pressure).
This is your signal that the filter plates are full and that
the caked debris needs to be dropped . . .
Open the air-blow valve to allow air to blow across and
through the filter plates, for one (1) minute. This
purges any water from
the filter screens while air drying the fines contained in the filter
the jack cylinder
(that compressed the individual filter plates).
Manually separate each filter plate to release the caked
debris which simply drop into a wheel barrel or
other appropriate container. Manually pushed each filter
plate back together. Set the jack cylinder. Open
the air valve and the process automatically repeats as slurry
waste begins to pumped through the plates.
typical cycle to empty the filter plates and drop the caked
plates, and then the reassembly is less than 10 minutes.
At the end of the day the screens should be rinsed
for storage to eliminate any debris or concrete build up.

Which Model is Right for You? Consider the following:
How many gallons of slurry do
you wish to process per hour / per day?
- A 55 gallon drum of concrete slurry will typically hold between
and 4 cubic feet of compacted sludge
(on your initial cuts, using the lower diamond grits,
more solids are created)

with an air operated 1" pneumatic pump (Ingersoll Rand). With 7 filter
plates Model 1 requires a minimum of 8 scfm of air.
1.0 produces between 4 and 6 gallons per minute of clear
water, holding over 1.0 cubic feet of solids.
The 2.0 has
twice the capacity of the 1.0 which also reduces the cleaning and
emptying of the filter plates by 50%.
You can use
a standard wheel barrel or other container for removing the sludge

plates, Model 2 requires a minimum of 15 scfm of air.

Screen Efficiency Rating: Filter screens are rated
at 1 - 2 microns nominal. If you absolutely must have 1 micron
efficiency, a $120 Filter is available and it is attached to the
discharge outlet (with the filter installed, discharge will be 4 - 5 gallons
a minute). The replacement filter media for this filter is
$15.00 and it is typically replaced every one to
Filter Screens: Intermediate
cloth, $58.00; End cloth, $32.00. Typical replacement is
every two years on concrete grinding, drilling and cutting
applications. But they can last
only one month if the concrete is allowed to harden on the screens
(typically after a week). Once the concrete has harden in the
pores of the screens, slurry water will not be able to pass through
. . .
of Needing New Filter Screens: As you are pumping
slurry through the machine - up to 80 psi or so - the air pump will
stall (which is normal,
this also tells you that the filter chambers are full). But
when you open or separate the filter chambers and you see that there
is very little caking (debris) inside the chambers - mostly just
slurry water. This means that the pores in the screens are
closed and either need cleaned or replaced. As previously
mentioned, they should be expected to be replaced about every
Screen Maintenance: We tell everyone to thoroughly
clean the units at the end of the day including the screens and
inside the chambers with a pressure washer - and especially if the
unit is going to sit for a week or so. However, guys have been
know to let the units sit for a month with slurry in them and they
work just fine.
Choose a Mudhen?
MudHen concrete water system is portable and utilizes large
casters to easily move the unit around a job site. The
concrete water equipment can be pushed into the jobsite by hand
and doesn’t require a forklift. The press utilizes
simple mechanical controls and heavy duty construction to eliminate
employee errors and problems. Concrete water recycling
was never so easy!
- MADE IN THE USA
concrete water system is built right here in the USA. All
components are parts are interchangeable with standard components
that are easily found. No more waiting for service and parts
that originate from outside North America. The MudHen
concrete water system is built to last, and when service is needed
- components are carefully selected to minimize the downtime.
The MudHen has the lowest cost of ownership for maintaining.
MudHen Model 1.0 Concrete De-Watering System comes standard at over 200 gallons
per hour of processing capacity and can be easily
accessorized with a larger compressor to handle over 500 gallons
per hour of capacity. The Model 1 Mudhen can easily can outpace
most teams of concrete professionals that are sawing and grinding with
industrial equipment, while the Mini Model will easily keep up
with (1) 30" grinder.
