A pumping station was experiencing continuous problems when pumping waste water with coarse solids, cause solids in the pumps which led to subsequent downtime. Solids such as fabric scraps and plastic containers got caught in the pumps and blocked the system.
The pumping station operator then tested various chopping units from different manufacturers. All the choppers tested had difficulties coping with the coarse solids in the medium. Then they tried the Boerger Rotorrake, especially designed for coarse solids. The operator of the pumping station was impressed by the powerful Rotorrake. No downtime from problems with solids has occurred since the Rotorrake has been in operation. The customer is extremely satisfied with the Boerger Rotorrake.
