WEFTEC Report: Vaughan Introduces Submersible Chopper Pump for Conditioning Wastewater

Vaughan showcased a conditioning pump for wastewater at WEFTEC in Chicago. The conditioning pump is a submersible chopper pump mounted on a portable stand and fitted with a high-velocity mixing nozzle.

The pump recirculates the wastewater, chopping and mixing to produce a homogeneous mixture that is more easily pumped to the next destination. Floating mats are removed and solids that have accumulated on the floor are re-suspended.

Because the pump is mounted on a portable stand, it can easily be used in multiple applications at a single job site, facility or municipality. It can be used for conditioning applications including lift stations, influent stations or channels, basins or holding tank, and for digester cleanout or homogenization.

The pump is designed to save users from cleanout cycles and maintenance. By resuspending and removing floating solids, the pump reduces the need for vacuum truck cleanouts. Where existing large pumps are clogging frequently, the conditioning pump can be placed in the wet well to chew up rags and solids so that the existing pump can operate freely.
