Vaughan SP4C self-priming chopper pump tackles difficult fish offal on deep sea factory ship
Pump Systems supplied a Vaughan model SP4C-089 self-priming chopper pump to leading New Zealand fishing company for handling fish offal. The pump is installed on the FV San Aspiring, an automated bottom longliner that is often at sea for weeks on end. All process wastes are stored in holding tanks within the ship, and once back at shore, the Vaughan self-primer is used to offload the fish offal for further processing. Similar configurations have been supplied to other fishing companies in Australia.
