Chopper pump with secondary cutter

October 7, 2003




The open hopper, range BTM progressive capacity pump from seepex, Inc. can chop or cut fruits, vegetables or fibrous materials and simultaneously pump them. Available in stainless steel, it can shred and pump certain materials such as potatoes, apples and most citrus fruits without adding additional fluids. The manufacturer offers an optional secondary cutter, which it recommends for juice producers who want a finer grind on fruit before pressing or extraction operations.
