  • Hurricane Harvey Was No Match For These Pumps

    The main lift station serving the waste water treatment plant in Morgan’s Point, Texas, continually experienced problems with its three standard non-clog pumps. The pumps frequently clogged when rainfall totals reached or exceeded 2 inches. Shop rags, pieces of 2 x 4 lumber, plastic bottles, gloves, and wet wipes all commonly clogged the pumps when the standard demand increased. Pump removal, unplugging, and recurring repairs were required, but the service company was not always available for immediate assistance, causing problems for residents serviced by this lift station.

  • X-PELLER® Non-Clog Pump Impeller

    The X-PELLER® was specifically designed for high volumes of trash pumping applications and low flow conditions in 4" (75-800 GPM), 6" (75-1,000 GPM) and 8" (300-1,700 GPM) vacuum primed and flooded suction Smith & Loveless pumps.

  • Monster Wash Press

    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.

  • A New Monster to Get Cleaner Screenings

    The Monster Wash Press is JWC Environmental’s latest generation of washer compactors. The Monster Wash Press processes screenings to separate water and organics from the solids. The result is a clean, dry, light and compact discharge which reduces the amount of waste to be dumped, ultimately saving treatment facilities time and money.

Designed for vacuum primed and flooded suction Smith & Loveless pumps, the X-PELLER Impeller features a mono-port design that effectively expels problem flushables and other large items up to 3” (7.6 cm). Wipes, rags and other stringy materials are no problem, even in low flow conditions, and even with today’s energy-efficient, low-flush toilets. With new hazards found in today’s collection systems, sewage/wastewater has become less dilutable and therefore prone to clogging. But the X-PELLER solves the problem and eliminates the need to tear apart a pump to unbind the impeller.
