The wet cutter RotaCut, our cutter with an integrated heavy material separator, can be used in a wide range of industrial applications. This cutter offers direct contact between the blades and cutting screen, which allows it to deliver defined cutting performance, which is a major advantage for processing fibrous materials. Moreover, as the wet cutter RotaCut simultaneously homogenizes the medium, it offers much more than merely pump protection for downstream systems. Medium that has been disintegrated in this manner an also be easily used in additional processes.
In industrial applications, the wet cutter RotaCut is usually used together with other Vogelsang products, such as rotary lobe pumps, progressive cavity pumps or other grinders, such as the XRipper. For example, in applications involving food wastes, not all materials are suitable for being pumped onward directly after an initial cutting step. Fish, meat and vegetable waste, in particular, often contain coarse fibrous materials that are separated in a heavy material separator.
Two wet cutter RotaCut models in particular have proven themselves effective in industrial applications: The wet cutter RotaCut RCX is used in abattoirs as part of the RedUnit in order to meet the requirements of the EU directive on hygiene. Thanks to its compact design and reliable cutting performance, the wet grinder RotaCut MXL is used on tankers to protect the pumps from foreign matter.
With features and options such as Automatic Cut Control (ACC) and Auto-Reverse function, the cutter is a key product for the shredding required in industrial applications.
