Vogelsang are suppliers of Rotary Lobe pumps which are typically used in the waste water treatment sector to pump raw sewage and sludges, where the dry solid content is between 6% and 15% (by weight). Their use on an anaerobic digestion facility on a sewage treatment plant is very common application.
The pumps are able to pass foreign bodies, can handle on a suction lift application (with a repeated self priming requirement) and are largely insensitive to dry running. The reversibility of the lobe pumps makes them suitable for membrane applications where running the pump in reverse allows for a cleaning of the membrane.
Vogelsang also offer inline RotaCut macerators and XRipper twin shaft grinders / shredders which are used to protect a downstream pump. These products too are in widespread use in the UK waste water treatment sector and are bespoke specified and manufactured to suit a specific application.
The XRipper is suitable for both pipework and open channel applications and as with all of Vogelsang’s products are robust and can be easily serviced by the end user without the need to remove it from site, ensuring the whole-of-life cost of ownership is minimised.
Vogelsang operates out of a facility in Crewe in Cheshire that has a comprehensive spares parts store. The company can provide both a field service and repair workshop service.
