Vogelsang has taken its XRipper twin-shaft grinder technology to a new level with the XRipper Giant (XRG). An extension of the company’s XRipper line, this design was developed for the harsh operating conditions and high-flow rates found in headworks and lift stations. Our patent-pending design delivers consistent grinding on a larger scale than traditional grinders, in a unit that is rugged, but still maintenance friendly.
The patented technology used in the XRipper XRG is a Monolithic (One-Piece) Ripper Rotor. Precision machined from high quality hardened alloy, this cutter assembly is easy to remove in one piece without having to take out the complete grinder. This is a vast improvement over other twin-shaft grinders whose rotors are a column of stacked individual blades and spacers that can break down or wear unevenly. Maintenance time and costs for these traditional units is much higher than for the XRipper. Service technicians attending Vogelsang's recent Service School commented on how easy it is to service an XRipper, and that traditional cutter stacks in competitors' units are extremely time-consuming.
The XRipper XRG High Flow Rotating Drum Design keeps debris moving in harsh conditions.
The XRipper XRG can be a drop-in replacement for other twin shaft grinders. Below you'll see a successfully replacement installation in a wastewater treatment plant in Minnesota.
The XRipper Giant comes with either a single drum or double drum configuration, with maximum flows between 2,000gpm/2.8MGD and 31,000gpm/45.0MGD. Minimum channel width required for the single drum unit is 21”/533mm and 42”/ 1372mm for the double drum unit.
Vogelsang USA is the leading designer in pump and grinding technology, with products made and assembled in Ravenna, Ohio.

At this plant, a XRC 136-560QD was installed to accommodate a large number of solids. As a result, the X-Ripper saves the plant time and money by reducing maintenance and downtime.
