The Vaughan Rotamix® System

Dairy applications are some of the toughest installations in the world. Whether it’s hoof blocks, afterbirth, ear tags, silage wrap, vet wrap, gloves, or rope, there is no shortage of troublesome materials that clog standard non-clog pumps in dairy settings. That’s where the Vaughan Rotamix® System comes in.

At Vaughan, we stand behind our mixing. With guaranteed performance and a full 10-year nozzle warranty, our pumping solutions keep your operations running smoothly. The Rotamix offers dependable mixing that significantly reduces sludge volume and cuts hauling costs.

Have an existing pump that is failing to meet your current mixing needs? The Vaughan Rotamix System is easily retrofittable to existing applications and perfect for replacing old and failing systems.


Unmanned Floating Platform

The FP26 Unmanned Floating Platform is designed for lagoon maintenance, dewatering, field irrigation, or sludge removal. Any Vaughan Vertical Wet Well pump can be mounted onto the platform, depending on the requirements. Foam-filled polyethylene pontoons are weather and water-resistant. Optional controls, hoses, sludge manifolds, and winching systems are available.


Turbo Agitator

The Turbo Agitator is a directional mixer for sludge pits, designed to efficiently rotate the contents by pulling settled sludge from the bottom and redirecting flow horizontally, causing a circular rotation within the pit. Available with grease pack bearings or oil bath mechanically sealed bearings.
