The Monster HYDRO Grinder is now ABS Certified

American Bureau of Shipping Certification for the Monster Industrial HYDRO MARPOL Grinders

JWC Environmental continues to bring customers the best technologies in the waste shredder industry.  We have again attained a certification of approval for our legendary Monster waste grinder.  This time the nod of approval comes from ABS, the American Bureau of Shipping.  Our MARPOL grinders (also known as the HYDRO series) are perfect for meeting MARPOL Annex V food waste disposal requirements for at sea vessels or to protect ship sewage systems from clogs.

The certificate of design assessment (PDF) allows for any Monster waste grinder to be used in any ocean-going vessel as a waste grinder.  This Type Approval is granted only after a manufacturer undergoes a Product Design Assessment (PDA) review through the American Bureau of Shipping Engineering.

JWCE is the only producer of twin shafted grinders to obtain this certification.  Having this will open inroads into the maritime market-place,” said Randy Ullon, Inside Technical Sales-person for JWCE.

Examples of HYDRO Grinders in the marine industry:

  • MARPOL Annex V – food waste shredding/disposal
  • Ship marine sanitation devices – pump protection
  • Ship vacuum sewer systems – pump protection
  • Naval vessels – waste compacting and disposal
  • Seafood processing – waste compacting and disposal
