Santa Ana, Calif. (September 26, 2018) — JWC Environmental (JWC), a world leader in wastewater solids reduction and removal equipment, announced today the release of the latest advancement in high-flow wastewater grinders, the Channel Monster® FLEX. This newest addition to JWC’s comprehensive offering of wastewater sewage grinders is a giant leap forward for the Company’s existing line industry leading Channel Monster grinders. The patent-pending innovations of the Channel Monster® FLEX will be highlighted at WEFTEC 2018, September 29 – October 3 in New Orleans.

The Channel Monster Flex offers the new features that wastewater professionals are asking for. This includes a modular and adaptive architecture, a higher flow capacity, and a lower total cost of ownership. These innovations have been combined with JWC’s other unique and proven technologies such as Wipes Ready® cutters and a perforated solids diverter to become the most efficient and effective high-flow wastewater grinder available today.

The Channel Monster Flex is constructed with separate FLEX grinder module and solids diverter modules brought together with a unique Flex Frame. This modular design allows for the flexibility of servicing the cutting element and perforated solids diverter element separately. The cutting element of any sewage grinder is the portion that will typically need overhaul in time. With the FLEX grinder being a separate module in the Channel Monster Flex a customer can receive a pre-assembled cutter module when required and easily replace it in the field. This eliminates the need for shipping a full unit back to the factory for repair or being required to perform extensive and complex repairs in the on-site when a box of parts arrives.

The capabilities of the Channel Monster Flex can also be expanded with changes in the surrounding community it serves. If peak flows increase or decrease at a given lift station a Channel Monster Flex customer can now upgrade the unit in the field to handle changes in flow by ordering a larger or smaller solids diverter module.

The Channel Monster Flex has been optimized to maximize flow capacity while minimizing any solids and wipes bypass. This means up to 20 percent more flow capacity in the same channel width when compared to earlier Channel Monster products. The Channel Monster FLEX achieves these high flows while still utilizing a perforated solids diverter, instead of horizontal screening bars. The perforated construction solids diverter plus the ability maintaining an extremely tight drum to cutter interface minimizes the opportunity for material bypass and insures all debris include wipes are rags are shredded.

The Channel Monster Flex is also available with an optional 10 horsepower (7.5kw) drive motor giving it the highest cutting force of any high-flow sewage grinder on the market today. With flow capabilities from 3.0 to 42 mgd and numerous combinations of grinder heights and diameters of the solids diverter plus customized installation frames make the Channel Monster Flex extremely versatile for both in-channel installations or wall mounting within wet wells.

Along with a first look at the Channel Monster FLEX at WEFTEC, JWC will also have a live 40K grinder demonstration and a Monster Drum Thickener on display at their booth (#4429).
