The Gorator works on a simple inclined rotor principle, which gives the machine its self-cleaning, non-clog, trouble-free characteristics under the most difficult conditions.
An impeller, taking the form of a flat plate, is mounted at an oblique angle on the end of the pump shaft. Notched teeth are located in peripheral stator bars to chop the material during passage through the pump. Rotation of the impeller reduces the materials and discharges it radially through the outlet.
The Gorator can be adapted to meet a wide variety of needs in an ever-increasing number of industries. It is easily fitted to meet individual reducing needs by spacing the liner bars to exactly the position required for various size particulates from 3/16” to 2 ½”. Synthetic fibers, rags, plastics, raw sludges, slurries, slaughter-house residue, high-viscosity materials, chemical residue, industrial waste and debris are but a few of the materials being successfully handled by the Gorator. Applications serving the wastewater industry for more than thirty years has proven this rugged machine. Material is reduced to a slurry so that material handling of solids, and process equipment clogging, is eliminated
