Founded in Germany in 1975, Boerger GmbH has built a name for itself as a leader in sludge handling equipment with thousands of Rotary Lobe Pump and Macerator installations worldwide and in North America. Rotary lobe pumps are an efficient and reliable style of positive displacement pump that is very effective for precisely moving sludge and other thick fluids. Boerger also carries several styles of macerators to allow for the handling of fluid with problematic debris. Thanks to their Maintenance-In-Place system, Boerger pumps and macerators are easy to work with and parts can be maintained and replaced without ever taking the pump off the line. With many different materials, rotors, and macerating systems to choose from, Boerger equipment is adaptable for a wide range of applications.
In 1960, Jim Vaughan invented the first chopper pump. Since then, three generations of the Vaughan family have overseen Vaughan Company as it developed its reputation for quality and reliability.
