The Vogelsang RotaCut Sludge Grinder is an economical solution for sludge laden with rags, heavy solids, and other debris.

The RotaCut eliminates heavy solids that damage pumps, valves, and other equipment. It reduces wipes, rags, plastics, and fibrous material into small confetti size particles rather than simply shredding them. Hard objects such as metal or stone drop into the built-in “rock trap” for removal prior to the grinder, prolonging the life of the grinding blade and removing the object from the line.

The RotaCut is placed in front of pumps and dewatering equipment that are vulnerable to damage by sludge containing hard solids, fragments, and debris commonly found in wastewater sludge. They are also ideal for sludge conditioning prior to dewatering equipment or digesters by creating a homogenized slurry.

The RotaCut comes in many sizes and is ideal for a variety of wastewater applications:

  • Primary sludge
  • Thickened sludge
  • Sludge transfer
  • Dewatering equipment feed
  • Digester feed, digester recirculation 
  • Septage and FOG receiving

One of the best features of the RotaCut is its service-friendly design. Everything can be done in minutes without removing any connecting piping. Most models include a hinged cover that provides access to the cutting blades and the cutting screen. The cutting screen comes in several material options, patterns, and hole sizes. The screens are reversible to allow for a fresh cutting surface without buying a new spare screen.
