Vogelsang RotaCut Sewage Grinder
The Vogelsang RotaCut Sewage Grinder eliminates heavy solids that damage pumps, valves, and other equipment in wastewater treatment facilities. It grinds wipes, rags, plastics, and fibrous material into small confetti-sized particles rather than simply shredding them. Hard objects such as metal or stone drop into the built-in “rock trap” for removal before the grinding blades, prolonging the life of the grinding blade and removing the object from the line. The Vogelsang RotaCut Inline Grinder is an economical solution for sludge laden with rags, heavy solids, and other debris.
The RotaCut is placed in front of pumps and dewatering equipment to prevent damage by hard solids, fragments, and debris found in wastewater sludge. They are ideal for sludge conditioning before dewatering equipment or digesters by creating a uniform slurry.
Applications of the RotaCut
- Thickened Sludge
- Sludge Transfer
- Dewatering Equipment Feed
- Digester Feed and Digester Recirculation
- Septage and FOG Receiving
RotaCut Sewage Grinder Features
Vogelsang has a range of grinders and macerators for grinding wipes, rags, and other debris at wastewater treatment facilities. They also provide the XRipper Twin-Shaft Grinder, which uses two hardened steel monolithic ripper rotors to cut and shred debris in the sludge waste stream.
Auto Cut Control – Automatically maintains the proper tension between the blade and the cutting screen, ensuring a proper cutting operation, even as the blades wear.
AutoReverse – The rotating blades automatically reverse if debris gets stuck in the screen.
Self-Sharpening Blades – The RotaCut allows the cutting blades to keep their sharp edge through normal operation.
Service-Friendly Design – Most models include a hinged cutting head that provides access to the cutting blades and the cutting screen. The cutting screen comes in various material options, patterns, and hole sizes. The screens are reversible to allow for a fresh cutting surface without buying a new screen.
Easy Inline Maintenance – All models feature a quick-release door allowing access to the cutting head.
RotaCut Screens are Reversible – The cutting screens are reversible to allow for a fresh cutting surface. The operator can easily change the cutting blades or flip the reversible cutting screen.
Adaptable to Your Operation – The RotaCut is available in several models and sizes with a selection of cutting screen patterns to meet the project requirements.
Placed on the suction or discharge side of sewage or sludge pumps, the RotaCut will eliminate ragging, reduce solids, and protect downstream equipment. Protect pumps and dewatering equipment from clogging, and prevent damage to belt presses, plate and frame presses, and centrifuges.
