Muffin Monster Shreds Screenings
The Monster Wash Press may be outfitted with a Muffin Monster® grinder to pre-condition the screenings before they enter the washer compactor. The grinder breaks open rags, plastics and trash to promote washing and removal of soft organics during the wash cycle. Additionally, pre-conditioned screenings result in superior compaction, reducing the volume of discharge that must be hauled away.
Discharge from the pre-conditioning Muffin Monster or directly from the screen enters a pre-wash zone of the wash press where the debris is saturated with clean water to begin the process of separating organics from the solids. An auger rotor transports the soaked debris into the active wash zone of the Monster Wash Press where a paddle rotor (patent pending) agitates the material, enhancing wash water penetration throughout the debris. The result is the effective washing of soft organics from the solids. The soft organics pass through a screen and are returned to the plant’s waste stream for treatment.
Superior Dewatering and Compaction
The washed solids move to the dewatering zone of the auger rotor where the process of removing the free liquids in the screenings begins. The final step is the compaction zone where more water is removed and the solids are compacted. The resultant discharge emerges from the Monster Wash Press as a dry, solid plug.
