With more than 1,000 installations, Vaughan's Rotamix System is today's most cost-effective means of mechanical hydraulic mixing. Consisting of an engineered arrangement of floor-mounted nozzles, fed by a Vaughan Chopper Pump, and using custom software, each application is analyzed by Vaughan's experts to achieve the desired mixing effect. The Rotamix System may be applied in circular, rectangular, or oval tanks and basins, as well as other unique process configurations such as egg-shaped digesters, CSO tunnels, and pump stations.
