  • New Muffin Monster 10K Sewage Grinders From JWC Environmental Pack Tough Grinding Power In A Compact Package
    and pump station configurations that pack big power in a small package The 10K Series Muffin Monster incorporates the same benefits of the larger Monster units including low speed operation with high torque and less interrupts The dual shaft design actively pulls material into and through the hardened steel cutters so the grinder can handle a wider variety of debris compared to single shaft macerators and grinders To shred sewer clogging solids commonly found in waste streams the 10K Series comes equipped with both top and bottom bearings that prevent shaft deflection This robust design feature not found in lesser grinders or macerators ensures the longevity of the product and drastically reduces maintenance costs downtime and operator inconvenience The smaller particles produced by the 10K units also pass more easily through downstream pumps and pipelines The 10K open channel Muffin Monster is an ideal low cost solution for smaller wet wells located in facilities such as office buildings apartment complexes resorts retail centers and package treatment plants Custom stainless steel support frames allow for installation directly at the inlet sewage line on the wall of a pump station or into an existing channel The 10K in line Muffin Monster is ideally suited for protecting sludge pumps sentive centrifuges samplers or heat exchangers in resource recovery facilities The 2 or 3 hp 1 5 or 2 2 kW motors provide all the cutting force required to shred tough solids Its efficient dual shafted grinding technology will not get clogged by wipes or other non dispersables as is common with high speed macerators For added versatility and performance the 10K Series units are available with 7 11 or 13 tooth cutter combinations to fit individual customer applications JWC is committed to providing dynamic reliable products to further combat wipes and other non

  • JWC Environmental Showcases New Technologies To Prevent Pump Clogs At WEFTEC 2014
    to disposable wipes being flushed into the sewers Once in the sewers the wipes are clogging pumps fouling plant systems and causing overflows In addition a 2013 report done by the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry INDA shows that the wipes market is slated to increase 16 year over year This growing issue will only compound problems for operators if attention is not given to finding solutions JWC focused its research efforts on better ways to capture the wipes cut them to a size that will not clog pumps and finally remove them from the waste stream JWC is introducing its new Delta P side rails and perforated drums to its Muffin Monster and Channel Monster family of grinders These two advancements ensure the capture of all items in the waste stream including wipes and drive debris into the cutter stack These technologies prevent the bypass of full wipes or build up on the grinders while maintaining the required high flow rate Improved cutting is achieved through new wipes ready cutters as well as tailoring the speed of cutter rotation with optimized cut control These improvements achieve the desired 2 D cutting capabilities to control both the width and length of output preventing materials from forming long strips and reweaving in the waste stream Finally the new StapleGuard UHMW panels and brushless cleaning system are being introduced on the Finescreen Monster to remove wipes at the headworks The advancements in fine screening technology means high capture efficiency with little carryover as well as more effective perforated panel cleaning without the use of a high maintenance brush system Along with a first look at these advancements to the Monster line of products at WEFTEC JWC will also have a Macho Monster live grinder demonstration at their booth 4729 There will

  • Partnership To Help Reduce Non-Flushable Items In Wastewater Systems
    personal care wipes paper towels and feminine care products These products are sometimes disposed of in toilets because of how and where they are used causing significant economic burdens on local wastewater treatment systems says NACWA Director of Regulatory Affairs Cynthia Finley To assist companies with product flushability assessments and to provide guidance on proper labeling INDA and its European counterpart EDANA recently released a Code of Practice for manufacturers and marketers of wipes and other disposable nonwoven products that includes a detailed decision tree to determine the proper labeling of a product Before a flushable claim can be made for products intended to be flushed the product should be subjected to the seven rigorous tests found in INDA s EDANA s newly released 3rd Edition Guidance Document for Assessing the Flushability of Nonwoven Disposable Products available here If a product is not designed to be flushed but used in a manner where the consumer might flush it nonetheless then the Code of Practice prescribes that the product packaging should display the Do Not Flush logo prominently and of a minimum size or larger INDA s research indicates that 94 percent of people who were shown the Do Not Flush logo knew what it meant even if they had never seen it before INDA s new Guidelines demonstrate continued progress for determining flushability says Manager of WEF s Water Science Engineering Center Christine Radke We also believe that the Guidelines could be further improved to ensure that flushable wipes break apart more rapidly and therefore are more sewer friendly We are pleased that INDA will be working with us to improve testing procedures that ensure flushable products are compatible with sewer systems We welcome the Code of Practice and use of the Do Not Flush logo for the non flushable products that are causing problems for utilities Prominent use of the Do Not Flush logo on package labels represents a viable path forward for educating consumers and reducing the amount on non flushable items in the wastewater system says Director of Sustainability at APWA Julia Anastasio We are excited to see more brand owners using the Do Not Flush logo with some even using the logo on the top of packaging where it is easily seen by consumers each time they use the product We welcome the support of NACWA WEF and APWA and look forward to continuing our dialogue as we tackle this problem together We all support good product stewardship and doing what s right for the environment That includes making sure that products that claim to be flushable will not harm the sewer system and educating consumers on proper disposal by ensuring that disposable products not designed to be flushed are properly labeled with the Do Not Flush logo adds President INDA Dave Rousse About INDA INDA Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry serves hundreds of member companies in the nonwovens engineered fabrics industry doing business globally Since 1968 INDA networking events have helped members connect innovate
