MACERATOR PITS

Used to grind up large solid components in waste water to ensure smooth continuous flow through the pumps. Used extensively in airports, prisons and large sewerage systems for example Sydney Water’s metropolitan waste water system.

Macerator Pits are installed as a separate chamber upstream from the waste water pump well (wet well) inlet. The design allows for the macerator to be lifted clear of te inlet/outlet pipes and therefore flow can continue through the pit. The pit can be either an Open Channel or an In-line unit.

Open Channel Macerator Pits
Designed and manufactured with a built in grated overflow bypass facility to allow waste water to bypass the macerator pit whilst solid matter is retained behind the grate. Designed to provide continued flow even if the macerator pit is off line for any reason.

In-line Macerator Pits
Installed with a bypass pipe system which allows the waste water to flow directly into the pump well. Designed to provide continued flow even if the macerator pit is off line for any reason.

Features:
• Channel type
• In-line type
• Easy to maintain
• Pest Resistant
• Separation of liquids and solids
• Galvanised or stainless construction
