Chopper pumps are a type of centrifugal pump designed to handle difficult and stringy solids that other pumps cannot handle. These pumps are ideal for applications such as wastewater and industrial process lines. The distinctive feature of a chopper pump is its ability to cut, chop, and macerate solids prior to pumping them, allowing for the pump to handle materials that could otherwise clog or damage a traditional pump.
A chopper pump utilizes a unique cutting mechanism that is a combination of a set of stationary blades and a rotating impeller. The stationary blades are typically located just before the impeller, allowing for the solids to be cut before being pumped. The impeller then moves the chopped material through the pump. This design helps reduce clogging and allows for the pump to handle high-viscosity materials that would otherwise clog or damage a traditional pump.
Chopper pumps are also designed to be self-priming, which means they can start pumping without having to fill the pump with fluid first. This feature makes them ideal for applications where a pump needs to be installed in an area with limited access or where it would be difficult to fill the pump with fluid.
Chopper pumps come in a variety of sizes and configurations, making them suitable for a wide range of applications. They are especially useful for wastewater treatment, industrial process lines, and other applications where solids need to be pumped.
Chopper pumps are designed to be durable and reliable, offering years of trouble-free operation. The unique cutting mechanism makes them ideal for handling stringy and fibrous solids that would otherwise clog or damage other pumps. The self-priming feature makes them easy to install and use, and the variety of sizes and configurations makes them suitable for a wide range of applications.
