A Cutter or Chopper Pump is a centrifugal pump that may be submersible or used in dry pit applications. Cutter or Chopper Pumps are mainly used in the wastewater industry or where there are a lot of stringy or difficult types of material that may clog a standard pump impeller. A Cutter or Chopper Pump is equipped with a cutting system to facilitate chopping/maceration of solids that are present in the pumped liquid. Cutter or Chopper Pumps exist in various configurations, including submersible and end suction centrifugal design. They are typically equipped with an electric motor to run the impeller and to provide torque for the chopping system.
Cutter or Chopper Pump is so designed that it prevents clogging of the pump itself and of the adjacent piping, as all the solids and stringy materials are macerated by the cutting/chopping system.
Cutter or Chopper Pumps are submersible or dry pit pumps mainly used in wastewater applications.
Cutter or Chopper Pump is often used for pumping sewage, sludge, manure slurries, and other liquids that contain large or tough solids due to its high solids handling capabilities.
Cutter or Chopper Pumps are less likely to clog with debris.
