Mitchell Lewis & Staver reviewed application data and changes in the waste stream with the campus facilities manager, opting for a submersible chopper pump that would be capable of actually cutting up the fibrous and stringy materials to the point that they would be pumpable.
Ty Collins added: "We specified a Landia chopper pump because of its proven, dual-action cutting mechanism and stationary hardened knife system. These knives chop and cut the materials prior to them entering the impeller. We've seen that other chopper pumps use the impeller itself as part of the cutting mechanism, but the Landia design allows for a far more efficient impeller system, whilst still passing whatever nominal solids remain".
He concluded: "Since the installation of the Landia chopper pump, the results at the university speak for themselves: Zero clogging. Zero maintenance".
