The latest version of JWC Environmental’s Channel Monster has arrived. The Channel Monster XD 3.0 has advanced into an ideal grinder and screening system for wastewater pump stations. JWC offers a variety of Channel Monster sizes, including 2.0, 2.5, and now the NEW XD 3.0. This is one big Monster!
The XD 3.0 is the world’s largest, most powerful sewage grinder at 13′ (4m) tall, weighing 9300 lbs (4220 kg) and producing 7 tons of cutting force at peak loads. The Channel Monster combines rotating screening drums and a Muffin Monster® grinder to shred solids while processing up to 59 million gallons per day (9306 m3/h). This combination is ideal for pump stations since the grinder shreds rags, plastics, wood, and trash so particles flow easily through pumps and pipelines.
The new Channel Monster XD 3.0 has multiple motors – a 15 hp (11 kW) grinder and 1 hp (0.75 kW) for the drums. The grinder has larger 3″ (76mm) hex drive shafts and stainless steel coil drums with 1/2″ (12mm) diameter rods. This new design features larger cutters, shafts and housings so the grinder can process heavy debris and first flush storm loading.
“We designed thicker cutters for a longer service life,” said Rob Sabol, JWC’s Director of Engineering. “Bigger cutters also help the process – solids are ground up so they pass through pumps but are still large enough for headworks screens to capture and remove them.”
The Channel Monster is offered with several options such as perforated or coil screening drums; JWC‘s exclusive immersible motors; overflow bar screens; custom wet well frames and high-tech controllers.
“Pumping station designers can now replace bar screens with the Channel Monster so operators never have to deal with solids removal and disposal – eliminating vector and odor problems in the neighborhood,” said Sabol.
