Application: Wastewater Treatment Plant, Channel
Vogelsang’s twin-shaft grinder, XRipper, replaced a JWC™ grinder unit in a high-volume, high-grit wastewater application. This large channel mounted grinder unit operates in an Canadian WWTP facility.
Previous Solution/Unit: JWC™ 40000 Series (also know as 40k)
Cause of Replacement: As a result of the high grit, the JWC™ unit required thousands of dollars of refurbishment each quarter.
Vogelsang Advantages Solution:
The XRipper XRC 186 series grinder was retrofitted, requiring no rail system change and even utilized the same control panel; so no system changes were required. The system has been installed for over one year and has required no repairs to date. (10/15/2016)
The WWTP Superintendent has this comment ,“We are pleased with the decision to replace our existing unit with Vogelsang.”
Another motivating factor was the XRipper’s best-in-class, two-year, 100% parts and labor warranty. This warranty allowed the plant to establish a two-year fixed operational budget, with service and support covered directly by the manufacturer.
Estimated Savings or ROI:
A yearly savings of thousands of dollars. The Vogelsang XRipper eliminated the near-quarterly repair/ replacement costs associated with the previously used JWC Monster Series model--not to mention the internal labor costs and downtime.
