Heavy-duty Vaughan vertical dry pedestal chopper pumps supplied for potato process wastes
Simplot Australia was looking to upgrade a group of existing process effluent pumps at their Tasmania facility to something more efficient and reliable. The pumps would be expected to handle corrosive wastewater containing a range of solids, including sharp, abrasive items and even whole potatoes. Due to space constraints at the site, Pump Systems offered Vaughan model STPE6W vertical dry pedestal chopper pumps in heat-treated stainless steel materials. The small footprint of the Vaughan PE configuration meant that the new pumps could be mounted in place of the original belt-driven units with a minimum of modifications.
