Solids Handling Pumps

Solids Handling Pumps

VAUGHAN – Centrifugal Chopper Pumps

Quality manufactured in Montesano, USA by Vaughan Company, Inc., Vaughan chopper pumps are heavy-duty centrifugal pumps with the unique ability of chopping all incoming solids prior to pumping. They will chop and pump difficult solids laden wastewater and sludge that conventional cutter and grinder pumps cannot handle. These robust pumps will provide trouble free operation in the most severe pumping environments found in wastewater treatment plants and other industrial waste processes.

With the same basic concept being used by Vaughan Co. for nearly half a century, the result is a highly dependable and proven solids handling pump that works. Suitable for a wide range of processing and wastewater applications, Vaughan chopper pumps will provide outstanding performance where solids in suspension cause clogging and blockage problems. This ability not only protects the pump from clogging, but also provides added benefit to downstream components, processes, and the environment.

Environmental Benefits

  • Chops & preconditions solids in waste stream
  • Eliminates clogging & blockage problems
  • More effective treatment of wastewater
  • Provides environmental & process benefits

Capacity Range:Available in a range of sizes and configurations for flow rates between 20 and 2000 m³/hr and heads up to 50 metres.

Materials:Ductile cast iron materials with impeller, cutter bar, upper cutter and cutter nut all in cast steel and heat-treated to 60+ Rockwell C hardness. 316 and CD4MCU stainless steel options also available.

Applications:Pumping of raw sewage, sludge and scum containing rags, fats, hair and fibres, glass and plastics; process wastewater containing wood, wire, rope, bottle tops, plastic bags and strapping; meat, fish and poultry wastes containing bones, feathers, paunch material, fish carcasses, whole chickens and turkeys, blood, fleshings, hide pieces, ears, hooves and horns; food and vegetable wastes containing carrots, corn husks, potatoes, tomatoes, restaurant and food industry wastes.

TRITON – Screw Centrifugal Pumps

The Triton Screw Centrifugal Pump by Vaughan Co. is ideal for applications that require low-shear, non-clog pumping of thick or aerated sewage sludges, large, stringy or delicate solids, as well as viscous or highly abrasive slurries.

Highly robust with heavy-duty power frames, the Vaughan Triton pump is designed to reliably transport difficult-to-pump media without the risk of clogging. Unlike its chopper pump counterpart, the Triton, with its special screw impeller, is designed to pass whole solids without reducing their size. This is especially useful in the fruit and vegetable industry where delicate products need to be transported without damage, or for shear-sensitive fluids such as thickened sludges or process slurries.

As standard, the Triton Screw Centrifugal Pump is fitted with Vaughan's industry-leading flushless mechanical cartridge seal, with a number of other sealing options available on request. Materials of construction can be customised for the application from a selection of quality cast ductile and hardened steels, stainless steels, and chrome iron.

Other unique features of the Triton include steep performance curves with high hydraulic efficiencies; non-overloading power characteristics; low NPSH requirements; a back pull-out casing design; replaceable suction cone, and a patent-pending back cutter system.

Capacity Range: The Vaughan Triton is available in a number of installation configurations including horizontal end suction, vertical dry pedestal, submersible, and vertical wet well. Pumps are available with 4” to 12” discharge sizes for flow rates from 20 m3/hr up to over 2,000 m3/hr for the largest models.

Applications: Key applications include pumping of municipal sewage in wastewater treatments plants and collection systems, plant influent areas, RAS, WAS, thickened and aerated sludge transfer, fruit and vegetable processing (transportation of whole delicate solids such as tomatoes, apples, carrots etc), paper stock slurries, industrial sludges, chemicals and resins, and oil field salt water disposal plant slurries (oil and seawater mixtures).

ABEL – Positive Displacement Pumps

ABEL GmbH & Co. was established in 1947 in Düsseldorf, Germany as an engineering firm to manufacturer pumps for the mining industry. Their focus is on designing and developing reciprocating positive displacement pumps for the transfer of difficult sludges, slurries, solids and a variety of aggressive, abrasive and viscous fluids. ABEL pumps are dry running, seal-less and highly efficient units that offer low lifetime operating costs, low maintenance costs and low energy costs.

All ABEL pumps are fully customised to meet individual operating conditions and application requirements set by the client. The line up consists of a variety of heavy-duty hydraulically and mechanically driven piston and membrane pumps that cover a wide range of demanding solids transfer and process applications. ABEL pumps can be found operating in some of the most severe roles in industries such as municipal and industrial wastewater, chemical and petrochemical, mining and ceramics, food and beverage, power and marine.

Capacity Range:Flow rates up to 400 m³/hr and pressures up to 250 bar.

Materials:Cast iron, nodular cast iron, stainless steel as well as high tech plastics.

Applications:Long distance pipeline sludge and slurry transfer, mine dewatering and desludging, digester feed, tailings transfer, filter press and spray dryer feed, transfer of abrasive, corrosive, acidic, alkaline, pigmented, viscous and granular media.

EGGER – TURO Recessed Impeller Pumps

Emile Egger & Cie SA specialise in the design and manufacture of TURO centrifugal recessed impeller pumps for handling a wide range of slurries, solids, fibrous materials and other difficult to pump liquids such as aerated sludge. With only 15% liquid contact due to a fully recessed impeller design, Egger TURO pumps offer low shear and non-clog performance as well as improved hydraulic efficiencies.

Even under extreme conditions the Egger TURO pump will offer reliable performance and low running costs. There is great flexibility in the configuration with a number of dry and wet mounted options available. Egger also produce a range of other special solids handling pumps including channel vane impeller, semi-open impeller as well as axial flow elbow propeller pumps for larger capacity applications.

Capacity Range:The TURO range is suitable for flow rates up to 432 m³/hr and heads up to 120 metres, with a maximum operating temperature of 180 degrees Celsius as standard and specials up to 280 degrees Celsius.

Materials:Material options include cast iron, stainless steel, special fine grain chilled iron and abrasion resistant alloyed cast iron.

Applications:Suitable for difficult, stringy and abrasive slurries, sludge and wastewater in municipal and industrial waste processes and treatment plants, pulp and paper industry, mining and dredging, cement and ceramic, chemical and petrochemical, food, sugar and salt applications.
