The Auger Monster® is a robust and affordable wastewater screen which combines three of JWC’s finest technologies – a grinder, a fine screen and a compactor. It removes trash and unwanted solids, so the treatment plant runs more efficiently and life is easier for operators and managers.
First, a powerful Muffin Monster® or Channel Monster® grinder shreds clumps of rags and long stringy material. Next, solids are captured by a perforated plate screen and removed by a rotating auger. As solids are removed, dual wash water zones clean-off fecal material. The rotating auger then conveys solids to the discharge point where the integrated compactor (optional) squeezes out water before depositing the cleaned and dried material into a dumpster.
The cleaner, more compact discharge keeps odors to a minimum and lowers disposal costs, as less water and fecal material are sent to the landfill.
This high-flow system offers incredibly high capture rates and is able to remove a wider variety of solids, particularly small solids and trash, better than traditional screens. It is frequently specified to protect high-tech Membrane Bioreactors (MBR) so they can run more efficiently and with less maintenance.
The rotating panels are positioned parallel to the flow and as wastewater enters the screen it flows left or right through the perforated screening panels. This helps eliminate bypass since only the inner loop of the screen touches screenings. Panels available with 5/64″, 1/8″ or 1/4″ (2, 3 or 6mm) openings. The heavy-duty stainless steel roller chain passes around a UHMW guide track to eliminate the need for sprockets or bearings in the flow.
