Submersible and Dry Installation Chopper Pumps F3000 Series – Flygt
Equipped with a special impeller and cutting plate, chopper pumps will cut up a wide variety of long fibrous materials and solid objects into small, harmless pieces, that will neither block up the pump, nor the piping.
The cutting action can be compared to that of a scissors. With an operation speed of over 1400 rpm, material passing through the pumps is chopped more than 140 times per second into harmless pieces.
The motor and shaft are protected from mechanical damage, should hard solid objects become caught in the cutting area.
The largest pump in the range features a unique automatic safety clutch. If a stoppage occurs, the obstructing article is easily removed, either manually, or by running the pump in reverse, and the unit is ready again for action.
For especially thick sludge, the screw-shape design of the impeller works to feed the denser medium through the pump.
