TASKMASTER® TITAN®  TM20060 "Full Cut" Grinder with High Flow Capability

The TASKMASTER® TITAN® TM20060 is the latest addition to the TASKMASTER TITAN grinder line. This unit builds on the patented, twin-shaft counter-rotating cutter design of the TASKMASTER TITAN. Its design features one cutting stack that intermeshes with a second one having a much larger diameter to rip, tear and shred solids entrained in liquid flow to fine particles so they can be more easily processed by pumps and other equipment. The TM20060 has a higher flow and larger throat opening than previous models.

Custom DELUMPER® LP 5-Shaft Crusher Fits in Tight Location

Delumper LP 5 shaft

When a major global leader in agricultural products needed help reducing wet and sticky agglomerates in a very tight plant location, Franklin Miller was ready with a custom solution.

The customer produces phosphate, nitrogen and potash, three critical crop nutrients and provides fertilizer to growers worldwide to make their crops thrive, so they can produce more high-quality food to meet the growing global demand.

When the company began having problems with their phosphate production, causing the material to agglomerate and clog their equipment, they knew they would have to find a solution. Acid and ammonia are added to phosphate to make it granular, causing the material to be sticky and wet and prone to agglomerates.

Automated Rock Removal and Conveying System Enhances SPIRALIFT® SR

SR With Rock Trap

The SPIRALIFT® SR septage receiving system now features an optional automated rock removal system. This unique system enhances the ease of use of the system grinder and tramp-trap. Rocks are a consistent problem with septage receiving and various methods of removal are used.

Twice the Flow with the TASKMASTER® TITAN® Duplex

Titan Installation

The TASKMASTER® TITAN® Duplex (TM 14000D) builds on the TITAN’s major innovation in twin-shaft channel grinding technology. The TITAN combines powerful channel grinding capability with high flow capacity and low headloss. The result is superior performance in both grinding and liquid handling. With the TASKMASTER TITAN Duplex two complete sets of twin-shaft cutter stacks are employed for twice the flow capacity and channel width. This unit’s unique design employs two counter-rotating shafts, but its intermeshing cutter stacks have two different diameters. One opening is much larger than the other, providing more efficient feeding and reduction of bulky solids and allowing greater flow to pass through freely. The finely ground output provides excellent protection of pumps, filter presses and other downstream equipment. With its massive array of cutting edges, cutter life and unit strength are enhanced.
The TITAN employs a 3HP or 5HP motor and cycloidal gear drive, cutter cartridge technology and a 14″ x 12″ up to 14″ x 60″ inlet cutting chamber size for handling flow rates up to 8 mgd. The TASKMASTER TITAN is provided with a PLC driven S260 automatic reversing control system which automatically senses jam conditions and jogs the cutters in a reverse cycle to clear the obstruction.
