Typical applications include sewage pump systems using any type of pump, sludge grinding, digestor recirculation and municipal or industrial incineration. All TR Munchers come with a PLC unit programmed to sense overloads and prevent damage.
The new design incorporates 150mm diameter cutters to capture larger objects more easily, also resulting in increased flow because of improvements in swept volume per revolution. The cutter stacks are set at an angle to the incoming flow in a layback design to reduce the possibility of damages by rogue materials. Rejected solids are dropped into a built-in trash trap set clear of the cutter stacks. The trash trap is fitted with large diameter access ports to enable easy removal, cleaning and flushing.
The upgraded design also saves on maintenance and repair downtime and costs. The cantilever shaft design eliminates the need for bottom seals and bearings, significantly reducing wearing components and offering cost savings.
The complete drive, gearbox and cutter assembly can be removed from the unit's casing without dismantling the machine or removing the casing from the pipework, saving time on routine maintenance procedures.
