Vogelsang's waste reduction equipment and pumps are perfect for food waste applications.
The Vogelsang RedUnit® line of products is a customizable platform of solids handling technology designed for reducing food scraps and other processing/manufacturing waste, including packaged food, into the necessary particle size for further processing. The RedUnit platform ranges from a single-stage hopper-fed grinder, to an all-in-one, combination 2-stage grinder and positive displacement pump.
Here are a few common RedUnit configurations, all provided as turnkey systems:
1) XRipper XRL with hopper (single-stage grinding, no pump)
2) XRipper XRL (Grinder) + CC Progressing Cavity Pump
3) XRipper XRL (Grinder*) + CC Progressing Cavity Pump + RotaCut (Macerator*) - *two stages of grinding
Other combinations of XRipper XRL and a VX Pump (Rotary Lobe) – shreds material then add liquid if needed, and pump the reduced particle size through discharge line
These units are quieter, typically occupy a smaller footprint, and require less service that solutions such as hammermills. A Vogelsang XRipper improves your waste reduction process by:
Need to grind and pump high solids material in one process?
The Vogelsang RedUnit® can handle the toughest food waste without plugging. We’ve combined twin-shaft grinding, macerating and pumping into one powerful, efficient unit. Its powerful torque comes from our exclusive monolithic wider ripper rotor design. And it’s customized to your exact application and needs.
Transferring food waste can occur in many parts of a processing facility. We have one solution that works throughout your facility. The Vogelsang VX HiFlo® Rotary Lobe pump is the perfect solution for all your pumping needs. Unlike progressing cavity pumps that are used in many facilities, look at what the VX HiFlo pump will do to improve your waste transfer:

For processing facilities that are short on space, or are looking for the most efficient solution for solids reduction and pumping combined, Vogelsang has developed the BioCut®. It combines the outstanding maceration technology of our RotaCut with the high-performance operation of the VX HiFlo pump. The combined unit sits on one base and can be configured to be a single pumping station within an entire facility.
Feeding a digesters or meeting particle reduction requirements? This might be your solution.
It is also popular for individual applications such as:
This versatility ensures cost-effective operation of the facility. Like all Vogelsang equipment, the BioCut is serviced inline. It also includes features such as auto-reverse, auto cut control, self-sharpening blades and reversible cutter screens available in various patterns.
An adaptable system including XRipper, RotaCut, and either a CC or VX Series pump.
