Automated Honey Monster Grease Receiving System Headed to City of Riverside Water Quality Control Plant

Engineering rendering shows the two new, Honey Monster grease receiving systems. The design includes fully automated rock traps, debris screening and a billing controller.

The City of Riverside has ordered two fully automated Honey Monster grease receiving and screening systems for their water quality control plant.

According to the City’s website, the upgrade of their treatment plant and grease receiving area will, “offer local grease haulers a safe way to dispose of restaurant grease. This component of the plant expansion will have a significant positive impact on the environment and provide a beneficial use for waste grease from local restaurants and food processing facilities.”

The custom-built system includes:

  • Automated rock trap and conveyor
  • Muffin Monster dual-shafted grinder to homogenize grease
  • Honey Monster auger screen to remove rags, plastics and other trash
  • Integrated debris compaction and dewatering zone for cleaner screenings discharge
  • Integrated MonsterTrack billing controller to record hauler and flow data

JWCE has several different sizes of grease receiving systems, from static basket screens called the Heavy Object Trap, aka the HOT, up to our larger, fully automated Honey Monster family of receiving systems.

The consulting engineer on the City of Riverside’s project is CDMSmith. The equipment adviser on the project is Tom Roberson of MISCO Water.  For more info about the City of Riverside’s treatment plant upgrade, please visit their website.
