Pumping liquid manure, recirculate and organic suspensions is part of the daily work at many biogas plants. However, these media often contain long-fibred solid matter (straw, grass, feed residue), heavy material (metal parts, stones) or disruptive matter (ear tags, branches etc.). This content has a negative impact on the ability to pump the medium, results in increased power consumption of pumps and mixers, and causes malfunctions or even damage, thereby decreasing the cost-effectiveness of a biogas plant.
Vogelsang developed the pump system CC-Cut precisely for these applications. It combines a progressive cavity pump from the CC series with a RotaCut in a compact design. This means that the CC-Cut can be integrated into most biogas plants as the central pump system, without taking up much space. And the CC-Cut also reliably separates heavy material out of highly viscous media, reduces disruptive matter to a manageable size, cuts solid matter and mixes everything intensively. The optimally treated medium is then pumped reliably and trouble-free even against high pressures. In addition, the efficient treatment also reduces the viscosity and the tendency to form floating layers. Both are positively noticeable through a lower energy requirement.
Maintenance and replacing parts are quick and easy with the pump system CC-Cut as they are for the individual components because both retain the full service function: all wear parts can be replaced on site.
