Sewerage authorities and wastewater treatment facilities are challenged by the rise in the use of flushable wipes. Unlike toilet paper, wet wipes fail to disintegrate. These wipes clog the pumps causing them to break down and redirect stagnant wastewater back toward houses.
Some municipalities report accumulating anywhere between $400,000 up to $18 million in related to costs to the district. The TASKMASTER TM8500 grinder solves this major problem for countless municipalities, lowering downtime and costs. As a specialist in the size reduction and wastewater industry for over 50 years, we can offer you a custom solution. Our grinders are designed with treatment works in mind and can handle most of the difficult waste including "flushable" wipes.
Our Wipes grinders are available in both pipeline and channel configurations. They can be installed with guide rails for easy removal from a manhole as well submersible motors.
