Agricultural and Dairy Applications

You Can Bet The Farm On Vaughan Chopper Pumps

Jim Vaughan invented the first chopper pump back in 1960, after working on local dairymen's pumps in his repair shop and realizing the need to "chop" the solids while pumping. Since then, Vaughan Chopper Pumps have been the best in the field, providing high reliability and low maintenance on dairy farms around the globe. 

Vaughan Company pumps and equipment are ideally suited for a range of agricultural applications, including:

  • Barn flush pit
  • Separator feed
  • Lagoons

The Turbo Agitator is a directional mixer for sludge pits, designed to efficiently rotate the contents by pulling settled sludge from the bottom and redirecting flow horizontally, causing a circular rotation within the pit. Available with grease pack bearings or oil bath mechanically sealed bearings.
