What is a macerator pump?

There’s a huge variety of pumps out there to tackle all manner of applications and today we’re going to look at macerator pumps.

Macerator pumps are used to break up solids in liquid in order to allow it to pass through smoothly. These pumps are heavily used in industrial and agricultural applications including wastewater treatment, manure handling and meat processing plants.

The design of a macerator pump is relatively straightforward, with the impeller having a serrated edge to cut down solids and prevent clogging. There will often be another macerator at the back of the impeller to ensure that solids within the liquid are reduced to the required size. Some macerator pumps have a filter at the inlet to stop any pieces that are too large to be broken down from entering and causing a blockage.
