The Vaughan Chopper Pump, a centrifugal pump, offers a unique capability of effectively chopping incoming solids prior to pumping. This remarkable feature not only safeguards the pump against clogging but also delivers additional benefits to downstream components, processes, and the environment. The wear components of this heavy-duty pump are crafted from cast steel and heat treated to ensure maximum impact and wear resistance, making it ideal for handling even the most challenging solids.
With over four decades of successful implementation, Vaughan's vertical wet well design embodies the same principle, achieving exceptional performance. The scissor action of the impeller vanes cutting against the cutter bar accomplishes the chopping process, ensuring that all solids are chopped upon entry. Consequently, the centrifugal action of the impeller allows for effortless pumping of smaller solids.
