In 2013, JWC Environmental took up the challenge of eliminating wipes related sewage pump clogs. The goal was to stop forcing operators to spend hours unclogging and rebuilding wipes plagued pumps that have broken down, only to have this problem repeat itself in a few weeks or even days. After extensive development and testing JWC introduced its Wipes Ready Technologies in late 2014.
Since the 2014 release of the Wipes Ready Technologies, JWC has partnered with municipalities around the world to install hundreds of Muffin Monsters and Channel Monsters equipped with the new features. Due to technology’s ability to cut wipes in such a manner that keeps them from forming pump killing rag balls the results have been nothing but fantastic. Utilities are reporting pump systems that faced weekly clogs have not fouled in nearly two years. Others are reporting lower pumping related energy costs due to pumps staying free of debris and working more efficiently.
“Our customers were asking us for a solution to wipes related pump clogs and we listened to their needs,” says Rob Sabol, director of R&D for JWC Environmental. “Through extensive testing and field trials by our development team, I am proud to say that we can now provide technologies that fix one of the biggest operational issues in wastewater today. Even better though is the sincere thanks we are getting from our customers.”
