OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU—RELIABILITY
As a pump user, you count on your equipment performing well every day. Who wants to worry about pump operations, especially when the pump is submerged in a greasy sump or stinky manure pit, or is otherwise difficult to reach?
Whether you operate a treatment plant that needs a cost-effective means of mechanical hydraulic mixing of sludge tanks, or you’re a dairy farmer or corrections facility manager who needs to avoid clogged pumps to keep the water flowing, Vaughan has you covered.
WE CHOP—AND MIX—IT ALL
We could simply tell you, “trust us, our pumps can chop—and mix—it all,” but here’s a real-world story that shows how our pumps can handle the most demanding challenges.
The three standard pumps in the main lift station serving the wastewater treatment plant in Morgan’s Point, Texas, often became clogged with shop rags, lumber, plastic bottles, gloves, and wet wipes when rainfall exceeded two inches. The city spent about $100,000 to maintain and service those pumps over seven years. After the city installed a Vaughan Company SE-Series Submersible Chopper Pump in July 2016, they have experienced over 100 inches of rainfall with no plugging incidents or other issues. And, during 2017 Hurricane Harvey, the Vaughan pumps ran continuously for seventy-two hours with no plugging incidents and no problems while pumping more than 2.5 million gallons of unscreened sewage through the lift station.
“I just wish we had purchased these pumps years ago to eliminate the maintenance headaches we endured, and the costs we incurred keeping our previous pumps in operation,” says Brian Schneider, city administrator for Morgan’s Point.
