Dorr-Oliver 4X3X8 Gorator Macerator Pump
Built to Survive Sludge & Scum
The 4x3x8 Gorator is designed and built for survival under tough sludge screening and scum and sludge disintegration service. Size reduction and disintegration is a back-breaking test for any sludge grinder, but this machine has been specifically designed to stand up to and handle this rough service. It is the most cost effective unit of its type on the market, offering savings in wear, maintenance and power use. To make it more durable, especially with the presence of grit residue, the new Gorator uses tool steel for the liner bars. And to reduce wear and power consumption, it operates at a low speed – 900 RPM. Current municipal wastewater treatment applications of the Gorator include sludge, scum, screenings and liquid waste disintegration.
The 4X3X8 Gorator also features a large diameter, short overhang shaft for minimal deflection under shock loads.
