Retro-Fit Mini-Drop System Proves to Be A Better Alternative To Submersible Mixers Problem

System Mix Ltd and P&M Pumps Ltd, the UK distributor of Vaughan Chopper Pumps have established a reputation for developing innovative pumped tank mixing systems with successful installations throughout the UK waste water industry. A number of Anglian Water sites at Clacton and Jaywick had the recently developed Mini-Drop retrofit mixing system installed into tanks without having to empty or clean them. They also utilised the existing guide rails and lifting equipment from the original submersible mixers which failed regularly with breakages and burn-outs due to heavy rag build up.
