CMD3210 Channel Monster® for sewage pump station

Monster protects pump station

The Mosside Sewage Pump Station, operated by Scottish Water, installed two Channel Monsters® to protect the pumps during heavy storms.

Channel Monsters® protecting sewage pump station
The challenge
  • A heavy volume of rags ad solids flowing into the station
  • The debris was especially problematic during heavy storms, leading to pump blockages and sewage overflows
  • Regular maintenance needed to uplift and unblock the submersible pumps and clean up the spillages
The project
  • Two Channel Monsters were installed in the wet well, each on a guide rail system to facilitate easy installation
The grinders have made a difference to both our operational and overtime costs, freeing up a lot of our operator time to concentrate on other sites. Graham Black, Area Manager, Scottish Water
The solution

We delivered two Channel Monsters

  • The grinders feature a perforated screening drum, which allows small particles to pass through, while capturing and feeding the larger debris into a dual-shafted grinder
  • The perforated drum allows high flow but prevents bypass of unshredded solids
Customer benefits
  • Mosside has seen a massive drop in the number of pump blockages, freeing up operators from having to attend the site to unblock the pumps
  • Unscheduled maintenance has been greatly reduced
  • Scottish Water has been able to cancel other planned capital investments, which were no longer required
  • Channel Monster® Open channel grinders
    Channel Monster® sewage grinders represent the best-in-class technology for wastewater solids reduction. The patented Channel Monster uses rotating screening drums to capture solids and direct them into our proven dual-shafted grinder. The result is a high-flow capacity system that can handle typical solids loading as well as tougher solids like wood and occasional rocks.
