Vaughan’s Hopper Chopper system creates a tomato slurry and pumps directly to the hotbreaks, by using a specially design auger to feed the chopper pump. Installation of the Hopper Chopper replaces the need for a separate chopper, transfer pump, and in some cases, an additional conveyor. The Hopper Chopper system transfers product at up to 100 tons/hour

Vaughan Horizontal End Suction Chopper Pumps can also be used to chop and recirculate whole tomatoes from the bottom of the Hotbreak to the cooker vessel above the coils. Once the product has reached the desired consistency, the slurry is pumped to the finishers. All materials of construction for components contacting the product are 316 stainless steel and all lubricating fluids are food grade oil.
