With the push for more conditioning of sewage, sludges and other pumped material containing potentially troublesome materials that could damage process equipment or plug pipes and other equipment downstream, Fairbanks Morse introduces the 5300 Chopper pump. Using an enclosed impeller with a rugged cutting profile, it delivers pump efficiencies 20-30% beyond current chopper pump designs. Powered by the proven shaft-bearing system of the 5400 solids-handling pump, this unit is available in horizontal and vertical close-coupled configurations.

Mixer blades

Flygt first developed “banana” blade mixers in 1984, to improve efficiency when large volumes of water needed to be circulated. Recently added to its mixer line is the 4460 mixer. With an 8.4 HP drive, this new mixer is capable of producing as much as a third more thrust per machine than the next most powerful mixer, the 4430 model. This higher capacity mixer provides customers a more cost effective solution for large flow applications, as fewer machines can be used.
