Design and function of the pump system BioCut
How the pump system BioCut works
The BioCut is an efficient pump system for reliable and cost-effective pumping of heterogeneous media containing heavy material and disruptive matter. It consists of a self-priming rotary lobe pump from the VX series combined with a special type of construction of the tried-and-trusted wet grinder RotaCut – with both optimally coordinated and arranged to one another. The rotary lobe pump draws the medium – even out of a pit, if necessary – through the RotaCut. The RotaCut then separates out foreign matter (stones, metal parts etc.) due to their size or weight. During maintenance work, this foreign matter can then be removed through the cleaning port. Light solid matter and disruptive matter, such as fibers, wood etc., are drawn along in the flow of fluid to the cutting screen, where they are cutted and mixed with the fluid. This way, the pump system BioCut turns a heterogeneous fluid into a pumpable, homogeneous suspension. This suspension then reaches the rotary lobe pump on as short a route as possible.
Service and maintenance of the pump system BioCut
The pump system BioCut and the QuickService principle
When developing the BioCut pump system, we made sure to retain the full range of QuickService functions in the VX series rotary lobe pump and the RotaCut wet grinder: The RotaCut can be opened in a few simple steps, giving you free access to the cutting tools. Once the adjustment unit and the blade rotor have been dismounted, you can remove the cutting screen and, if necessary, renew the gasket. Replacing parts on the VX series rotary lobe pump is just as easy. When the cover is dismounted, you have free access to the pumping chamber and you can pull the rotary lobes off the shafts.
If necessary, you can also replace the axial wear plates, the pump housing segments and the Quality Cartridge mechanical seal.
The two components can both be maintained quickly on site, allowing the BioCut pump system to be put back into operation after a very short time. There is no need to dismount the pipe. This reduces downtime to a minimum.

Control technology for Vogelsang technology
Investing in our progressive and smart control technology significantly boosts the performance and efficiency of Vogelsang machines and systems. It captures and continuously monitors key parameters like the capacity or throughput rate, rpm, pressure and power consumption. The control detects malfunctions early, and rectifies them by intervening appropriately. The integrated communication interfaces like ProfiNet and OPC UA can exchange data with other systems or a superordinate control in real time.
At the same time, the web-based user interface displays all key data clearly in all major browsers. Optionally, the data can be accessed on mobile devices for remote monitoring.
Our experts’ experience from hundreds of applications in various areas constantly inspires our software development and lays the foundation for the major benefits for the users: low operating costs, maximum availability and efficiency.
Our range of controls offers the right solution for all machine requirements and all customers’ needs. From ready-to-use, factory-tested and commissioned system solutions for end users, to basic versions for experts who want to put the finishing touches to the control technology themselves.
