JWC Environmental’s Monster Wash Press (MWP) cleans and compacts the discharge from headworks screens, separating water and organics from the solids. It features a Muffin Monster® grinder to pre-condition screenings before entering the Monster Wash Press. The grinder breaks open rags, plastics and trash to promote washing and removal of soft organics. The patent-pending paddle rotor in the active wash zone agitates the material to enhance water penetration throughout the debris for even better removal of the organics from the solids. Organics are washed back into the wastewater treatment process and the solids are compacted into a dry, less odorous solid plug. The Monster Wash Press is designed for easy maintenance. The rotor and field replaceable screen can be removed via the top of the unit, minimizing the clearance space needed around the unit during maintenance. A grinderless version of the Monster Wash Press is also available.
