    Sithe by Barnes


    Submersible chopper pumps designed to chop and macerate solids in extremely challenging waste water applications.

    Sithe is the solution to prevent pump clogging caused by non-dissolving solids in waste water streams. Easily passes wipes, swiffers, plastic bottles, mops, shirts, nylons …
    Sithe’s patent pending slicing mechanism reduces solids to prevent downstream clogging and blockages in piping, valves and head works.

    Sithe’s elegant but rugged design results in industry leading product reliability.

    Sithe features easily serviceable blades and plug-n-play “quick connect” cord to simplify and reduce maintenance costs.

    Sithe chopper pumps will solve clogging problems in the most demanding applications:

    • Trailer Parks
    • Prisons
    • Waste Water Treatment Plants
    • Retirement Communities
    • Truck Stops
    • RV Parks

    CraneSubmersible chopper pumps designed to chop and macerate solids in extremely challenging waste water applications:

    • Patent pending cutting system that uses a “Slicing” action versus harsh chopping reducing stress on shaft and mechanical seals
    • 440C Stainless steel heat treated to 56-60 HRC and tempered for toughness
    • Open center cutter design prevents material buildup and clogging
