JWC Environmental – Monster Industrial Grinders

Simple. Smart. Solutions.

About the Company:

IFO wastewater screens are great for primary screening, effectively removing process water from offal (meat and feathers). IFU and IFS screens excel at secondary screening where flow rates are higher and solids loading is lower. The design of these screens and their slow speed operation reduces water usage, increases solids, discharge dryness and minimizes blinding. JWC | IPEC IFO, IFU and IFS Internally Fed Drum Screens are flexible in design to fit into your existing infrastructure, saving you time and money.

About the Solution:

Protect Solids Handling Pumps With The World’s Leading Grinder

Solids Handling Pumps may not be able to handle large debris. You can protect your solids handling pump and any other downstream equipment by installing a Monster Industrial HYDRO grinder. The 3-HYDRO and 4-HYDRO Open Channel grinders can handle must larger debris then your solids handling pumps. Stop pump clogs and pump repairs and keep your processes flowing with a Monster Industrial Grinder.

The 3-HYDRO & 4-HYDRO Open Channel grinders provide complete protection for downstream equipment – including pumps, valves, centrifuges and heat exchangers. Two rows of sharp, steel cutters rotate slowly and with incredibly high-torque to grind large solids that flow through pumps and pipelines into small particles. The 3-HYDRO & 4-HYDRO easily reduce troublesome solids that often cause problems. Typical applications include drill cuttings, oil sands processing, petroleum, pulp and paper mills, chemical plants, fish/beef/poultry processing, manure, and recycling plants.

The 1-HYDRO Inline Monster grinder provides complete protection for downstream equipment – in a small package. Packed with power, this grinder converts the 2-3 hp (1.5-2.2 kW) motor into a cutting force ready to keep fluids flowing through pumps, valves, centrifuges and heat exchangers. Two rows of sharp, steel cutters rotate slowly and with incredibly high-torque to break down solids in sewage, sludge and slurries. The 1-HYDRO easily bolts into pipeline and can be mounted in any orientation. The 1-HYDRO is an economical solution for lower flow applications. Its small package makes it ideal for protection sewage pumps in office buildings, apartment complexes, resorts and retail centers. It works well in food processing plants protecting systems in waste streams. 1-HYDROInline grinders are also found in digester, manure processing and food waste applications to protect processing systems or breakdown feedstocks.

Solution Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators

NOTE: There are multiple technologies that are used as part of integrated manure management systems and yet are not manure management types on their own. The impact of these technologies on their own would be minimal or very difficult to quantify.

General Support & Other:

  • Can be an integral part of many manure management systems
  • Most projects have at least some equipment that supports operations of the main technology
  • This technology is not evaluated on its own, the NEAT Matrix for this technology is neutral unless utilized with other technologies.

Newtrient Comments/Opinions:

Newtrient is is aware of several working JWC inline and channel grinder technologies on dairies. The systems reduce the particle size of solids going into these systems which prevents the plugging of pumps and equipment downstream as well as increasing the surface area of the solids which can improve gas production in Anaerobic Digester systems.

The JWC equipment is robust and durable and their program of exchanging the grinders for rebuilding means that there is little major maintenance required on site.
