TASKMASTER® TM1600 Inline grinders feature a heavy solids reduction capability and a pressure-rated drop-in flange housing for fast and easy maintenance. These powerful twin-shaft grinders plow through a large volume of rags, sludge, biosolids, solid waste, institutional waste, screenings and more. They are provided for applications with heavy solids, high liquid flow rates and with flange sizes from 12” through 30”.
The TASKMASTER TM1600 has proven its unsurpassed capabilities and valuable service in hundreds of installations worldwide. This unit typically employs a 10 HP (7.5 kw) motor and direct drive which provides high torque, low-speed operation to plow through tough solids.
With the TM1600’s drop-in housing design, the entire grinder’s lower works (working element) can be quickly and easily pulled out of the unit housing for maintenance without disturbing the connected pipe system. For reinstallation, simply drop the unit into the pipe housing and fasten a few bolts on top and it’s up and running. There are no ports or plates to adjust on the bottom of the housing. The TASKMASTER TM1600 series employs cutter/spacer elements that cut the number of individual parts in half. Each cutter/spacer combo has twice the crossection increasing its strength and reducing the possibility of shaft scoring.
