CDD Channel Monster® in wastewater pump station

Keep wipes at bay

The pump station in Billerica, Massachusetts, installed a CDD Channel Monster® with Wipes Ready® technology to protect its equipment from undue stress, damage and unscheduled maintenance.

The challenge
  • Increasing number of rags and wipes caused undue stress and damage to pumps
  • The problem aggravated during periods of heavy rain
  • During storm events, the system had to be closed down and the pumps cleared as often as three times per day
The project
  • A CDD Channel Monster was installed in 2011
  • In 2014, the grinder was upgraded with the Wipes Ready technology
The Wipes Ready upgrades made a huge difference. We’ve already gone two months without even pulling the pumps and they’re running much more effectively. Mike McCaughey, Collections Supervisor at Billerica
The solution

We delivered a CDD Channel Monster, which was later upgraded with the Wipes Ready technology that effectively shreds all tough solids

  • The traditional coil bar drums were replaced with rotating screening drums
  • The cutters were upgraded to the new 17-tooth serrated cutters, which shred the wipes in two directions
Customer benefits
  • The need for daily pump maintenance has been eliminated
  • No need to manually remove the clogs and ragballs from the equipment
