The installation of conventional sewer systems in areas of low population like small villages, farms or under difficult topographic conditions is often extremely expensive, mainly because of the high cost for large diameter pipework installation. HOMA provides the perfect, economical alternative with Barracuda grinder pump pressure sewage systems. The Barracuda pumps cut all solids present in the sewage into small particles. This allows the use of pipes from 1 1/2“ diameter, which can be easily laid at low cost with a minimum of construction work.
Transportable or permanent. Models with float switch control for automatic pump operation, depending on liquid level in the sump.

Max. liquid temperature: 40°C (104°F) short term up to 60°C (140°F).
Electric motors, with 2-pole motor speed. Insulation class H, degree of protection IP 68.Thermal sensors embedded in the stator winding protect the motor from overheating. PTC sensors on request.
The cutting unit installed in front of the impeller crushes all cutable solids in such a way that the liquid can be pumped through pipes from DN 40 upwards.
For optimum adaptation to the pump medium and operating conditions.
For dirty and muddy media with solids.
Cutting system upstream of the impeller for grinding solids.
The network frequency is 50 Hz in the EU.
In other parts of the world, such as in the North American region, Brazil, Saudi Arabia or South Korea 60 Hz.
HOMA pumps are available for both frequency ranges. A selection of the pumps for the valid frequency range at the installation site must be made accordingly. We are happy to assist you in the selection of the right pumps.
At this point, you exit the HOMA website and are directed to the website offering our pump selection software HOP.Sel.
