10K Muffin Monster™ for water reclamation plant

Monster takes over when macerators can’t cut it

When macerators no longer could handle the high solids levels in the wastewater stream, the water reclamation plant in Schertz installed three in-line 10K Muffin Monsters™.

Biogas facility in Catalonia, Spain, invested in a 30K in-line Muffin Monster

The challenge

  • Severe problems with plugging of the pump station lines that led to frequent pump rebuilds
  • The system had to be interrupted 2-3 times a day to cut through rags, hair and debris
  • A complete pump rebuild was needed every two years

The project

  • Three in-line 10K Muffin Monsters were installed to protect the six Penn Valley Double Disc Pumps
  • The Monsters replaced the macerators that had been installed ahead of the pumps
Having installed the in-line 10K Muffin Monster has been a blessing for the last six months. Plant Maintenance Superintendent

The solution

We delivered three in-line 10K Muffin Monsters

  • The grinders are compact and tough on solids in sludge applications
  • They can easily grind materials macerators cannot handle
  • They use less energy than macerators thus saving electrical costs

Customer benefits

  • The efficiency of the Muffin Monsters has proven so great that the plant no longer keeps all six pumps running
  • The three Monsters are grinding more reliably with less energy
  • There is no need to rebuild or stop sludge pumping to manually cut away the debris
