All-In-One Screen for Pump Stations

Sewage pump stations are increasingly being overrun by high levels of solid including disposable wipes and other waste. The answer for debris removal in pump stations is the Vertical Auger Monster® – which combines three of JWC’s finest technologies – the Muffin Monster® grinder, a fine screen and auger compaction technology. This all-in-one pump station screen facilitates debris removal by first capturing solids, conveying waste vertically out of the lift station, and laundering the screenings to remove fecal matter. Finally this pump station screen dewaters the screenings before depositing the clean and dry material into a bin.

Add a Muffin Monster for Enhanced Debris Removal

When paired with a dual-shafted JWC Muffin Monster grinder, the Vertical Auger Monster will produce cleaner screenings than any competitive pump station screen. The grinder tears into rags and tough solids, breaking them up and allowing a higher level of separation of the organics from the screenings. The cleaner, more compact discharge keeps odors to a minimum and lowers disposal costs, as less water and fecal material are sent to the landfill.
