Landia delivers 25th chopper pump to UK snack producer

Landia has just supplied its 25th pump to a London, UK-based snack-food manufacturer, in a partnership that is now celebrating its 20th anniversary.

Supplying branded and private-label snack and crisp products for both independent and major retailers within the UK and across Europe, the food manufacturer began using Landia long-shaft chopper pumps two decades ago to transfer effluent from below-ground pits to its wastewater treatment plant.

First supplied as 5.5kW units, but in more recent years as 7.5kW, some of the original smaller chopper pumps are still working, with only a bare minimum of basic wear and tear parts ever required.

Landia’s MPG-I long-shaft vertical chopper pumps are designed with a fan-cooled motor that sits above the liquid surface and is therefore well protected. The pump contains no seals, which makes it extremely robust and tough.
