WHITEPAPERS

  • Problems And Solutions To Wipes In Wastewater Treatment Systems

    Blockages often occur in residential and municipal sewer systems from accumulation of disposable wipes in wastewater treatment systems. The pipes, pumps and other equipment that process flushable waste in wastewater treatment systems are often not capable of handling such waste.

  • Grinders, Shredders And Comminutors – An Evolving Technology

    Comminution technology has been evolving quite rapidly in response to the increasing burden entrained solids have placed on treatment facilities. More advanced devices have been developed in rapid succession. The result has been an exciting and fluid race between the leading manufacturers to develop the best size reduction device. The latest grinder innovations to be introduced have coupled the power of twin shaft grinding with higher flow capabilities and screw screening systems. Here’s a rundown on the past and present state of the art in wastewater solids reduction.

  • The Selection & Use Of Sludge Muncher Grinders & Wastewater Munchers

    Sludge grinders are inline processors that play an important role in the successful operation of wastewater treatment plants by reducing oversized solids that can causing jamming and damage to pumps and process equipment. Franklin Miller grinders are known for their heavy-duty capabilities and innovative designs with models available for a variety of application requirements.

  • Septage Receiving Challenges & Solutions

    Septage disposal requirements have come a long way since the days when haulers could simply discharge their loads into an open pit at a sewage treatment plant or off-load them into a field or lagoon. This process was often neither regulated nor monitored. Haulers submitted their own estimates of what and how much they dumped for billing purposes. This practice created a very real threat of ground water, lake and stream contamination.

CASE STUDIES

  • TASKMASTER Aids In Biomass Research

    At CRBM Marine Biology Research Center in Quebec, Canada, researchers were in search of a grinder for a project involving marine biomass. A big part of this research project was focused on finding and extracting marine molecules that could fight against major diseases such as cancer (breast, lung, prostatic and intestinal). For the research, marine materials such as hard shells, lobster pieces, stretchable fish skin and even large and resistant seaweed needed to be ground to a homogeneous size so the research elements could be effectively extracted from the material. Getting the output size right was imperative to having a workable material for the very delicate extractions and research.

  • 24″ PIPELINE DELUMPER® Heavy-Duty Inline Processor

    This 24″ PIPELINE DELUMPER® was design to handle 84,000 lbs/hr of polypropylene for a major petro-chemical company. The unit features 24 inch inlet and outlet flanges, stainless steel construction and a 50 HP motor to handle oversized agglomerates of polypropylene. The unit de-agglomerates troublesome scale and lumps that can cause operational difficulties for a petro-chemical plant. Reliability is critical as the unit is to be installed extremely high up in a relatively inaccessable area.

  • Union Township, NJ Automates Pump Station With TASKMASTER®

    Union Township, New Jersey was having a lot of trouble with their pump station. Although a small pump station, it was extremely cumbersome to maintain. The station was using a trash basket with a ladder and rail system to screen solids. This was extremely time-consuming, used an excess of manpower and proved to be ineffective at times. They knew they needed a better solution.

  • DELUMPER® Crushes Soda Ash Scale

    A leading mineral mining and processing plant recently turned to Franklin Miller for help in solving a long-standing problem. The facility, located in Wyoming , is a major producer of soda ash, the common name for sodium carbonate. Derived from trona ore, the soda ash has significant economic importance because of its application in manufacturing glass, paper, chemicals, detergents and other products.

  • TASKMASTER® Grinder Contributes to BioFuel Production

    The Meadowbrook Dairy in El Mirage, California is part of a growing alternative energy initiative -the production of energy from renewable sources. In this example, the renewable source is manure provided by the dairy’s 2000 cows. Each day, 20,000 gallons of manure are collected, deposited and processed in an anaerobic digester. Methane is released which fuels a turbine that generates electricity. Enough power is generated to meet most of the daily needs of the 159 acre dairy.

  • DELUMPER® LP Crusher Improves Cocoa Butter Processing

    Chef Rubber, based in Las Vegas, Nevada, is a manufacturer and distributor of specialty supplies for chefs and well-known confectioners. The products include silicones, molds, colorants and colored cocoa butter. These unique tools are widely used by artisan chefs to create edible works of art for special events, competitions and other artistic applications.

  • Crusher Breaks Up Large Cakes Of Enzyme Products

    American Laboratories, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of enzyme products for many food, dietary supplements, nutritional and industrial applications. The company has grown steadily, currently operating three facilities in Omaha, Nebraska. To keep pace with this expansion, the company realized, some years ago, that a more efficient way to process the enzyme material was necessary. After examining their options, they made a decision to purchase a Franklin Miller DELUMPER® Crusher 1077 S4.

  • The DELUMPER®: A Sweet Success At ADM

    ADM Cocoa Plant in Hazle Township, Pennsylvania needed help with their cocoa bean production. The plant processes two and a half million pounds of cocoa beans each day, turning them into cocoa powder, cocoa butter, and chocolate liquor. The company needed a machine to process sugar with over-sized lumps that could occur in transport or storage. Unless these agglomerated clumps were reduced to a granular form, the process could not work dependably. The machine also had to handle the large quantity of sugar processed daily and be sanitary.

  • DIMMINUTOR® Protects Pottstown Equipment From Abrasion, Clogging

    The Pottstown, Pennsylvania Wastewater Treatment Plant handles the wastewater generated by 15,000 area homes, commercial businesses, and industrial sites located in the borough of Pottstown and three nearby townships. The facility is rated for 15.6 mgd and treats an average flow of 7 million gallons of sewage a day.

  • How The Franklin Miller Dimminutor® Became An Olympic Winner

    The Franklin Miller DIMMINUTOR was selected for the state-of-the-art sewage system infrastructure project built to accommodate the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. After an intensive construction project, multiple Model DM36XF DIMMINUTOR® open channel comminutors were employed throughout the new sewage system. Each unit has the capability of 29 million gallons of raw sewage per day.
