When a Southern California wastewater district faced nightmarish pump ragging and clogging issues in one of their largest lift stations – operators knew exactly what to do. They recommended installing the industry-leading Muffin Monster® sewage grinder – or in this case – its bigger brother the 40K.
Operators from Moulton Niguel Water District were clearing out sewage pumps every other day at the Lower Salada Lift Station located near the coastline in Orange County. The dry-pit station is deep underground with a congested working area. During peak flow, the three 400-hp (300-kW) pumps need to move millions of gallons (40-175 l/s) of sewage to the treatment plant to prevent a backup or overflow.
