First self-priming chopper pump

A low maintenance, self-priming chopper pump, called Prime Cut, has been launched in Oregon, USA. Prime Cut is unique in that the pump is situated above the sump, up to a maximum distance of six meters. The medium being pumped is drawn by atmospheric pressure up to the suction line into the volute.

The advantage of this position is that it makes maintenance and repair simpler, less expensive and quicker.
Prime Cut is expensive, but the initial cost may be justified by reduced repair and maintenance costs. It is available internationally for about $10,000.Before the advent of Prime Cut, fixing pumps often required the use of cranes and involved digging and general disruption. This process is also more hygienic as there is no physical contact with the actual material being pumped, in the case of pumping waste or sewage this is an obvious advantage.
Like other chopper pumps, Prime Cut is able to deal with solids up to 75mm in size, including plastic and wood. It guarantees non-clogging. The pump is designed and patented by Vaughan Ltd., the international company that designed the first chopper pumps.
