Chopper pump for chicken processing plant

14 June 2021

Ferrier Pumps has helped solve a wastewater problem at a Scottish chicken processing plant. 

The application was to transport washdown water containing feathers, faeces and sawdust and achieving the required flow rate was critical.

As part of its solution – which included two screens, pipework, control panels and flowmeter – Ferrier Pumps brought in a submersible chopper pump from Landia. Peter Ramsay, sales engineer, at Ferrier Pumps, takes up the story: “We knew that if the minimum self-cleansing velocity could not be maintained for this packaged pumping station, then the solids in the pumped product would settle out causing blockages.”

Operating at 1,500rpm, the submersible chopper pump is designed with its classic external knife system that chops solids before they get inside the pump’s casing – continuously reducing particle sizes for the benefit of the process.
