Double Chopping System
Our range of heavy duty chopper pumps have been designed to tackle the tough industrial processes. The ETO, ETV and PTS range of heavy duty chopper pumps have a double chopping system to ensure chopping of solids prior to pumping, this system enables high efficiency due to the anti-clogging performance. The first chopping system consists of two chrome steel blades secured on the body inlet, acting in contrast to a spiral conveyor made from high grade cast iron and fitted to the motor shaft. The second chopping system consists of a shear cutting plate in special high grade cast iron, the cutting edges of the high grade impeller maximise the cutting action against the cutting plate. With a maximum speed of 2900 rpm, this is the only chopping system that operates at over 170 cuts per second!
The Chopper Pump Range
Each pump in the range is ideal for particularly heavy applications that require a preliminary chopping of the solid material suspended in the liquid being pumped. The PTS range is a submersible heavy duty chopper pump. The ETO is an electric horizontal version which is mounted on a frame and coupled with a standard starter electric motor by a flexible coupling, and the ETV is a vertical option of the chopper pump range. The ETO, ETV and PTS range of heavy duty chopper pumps are available in a Nitec anti-corrosive coating for protection against aggressive liquids, making them the ideal choice for industrial applications.
