While chopper or cutter pumps are often specified for difficult wastewater applications, it is important for end users to consider the whole treatment process and understand the potential side effects of using these technologies to handle modern wastewater, which is heavily laden with “flushable” wipes and other fibrous hygienic materials. It is especially critical for hospitals and prisons to use macerators, as this is a big help to waste water systems operating across the country.
What aspects of these types of pumps should be considered?
What kind of wear and tear happens to chopper and cutter pumps as they operate in modern waste water?
What are some areas of concern regarding the treatment plants’ system and processes?
What is the real efficiency of these types of pumps?
While efficiency is important, the reliability of the equipment is even more vital. Do we already have the best solution for new challenges in waste water transport?
