The Roseland, NJ pump station is one of the largest high-flow stations feeding into the Caldwell Wastewater Treatment Plant. The pump station originally used a trash rack in the channel coming into the station. This arrangement made it necessary for a worker to climb down into the confined space once a day to access and empty the trash rack manually. This was a very time-consuming process and was expensive for the station to keep up with such frequent manual maintenance.
By installing the TASKMASTER® TITAN®, the challenges were instantly resolved. The brand new machine was installed in front of the bar rack. This eliminated the manpower needed and a big portion of their day that was spent manually maintaining the system. The TASKMASTER TITAN is a workhorse that can handle such heavy objects as sanitary wipes, rags, shoes, blocks of wood and many different items that find their way into wastewater systems.
The Titan is a powerhouse and is working well at handling the high flows. The station has no more maintenance issues at all.
Its unique design features two cutter stacks. One stack intermeshes with a second one that has oversized cutters. The result is unsurpassed grinding performance, durability, superior solids feeding and high flow capacities. “Time was saved, and worries were saved,” said Ray Cornetto who worked with the installation of this machine. “The TITAN is a powerhouse and is working well at handling the high flows. The station has no more maintenance issues at all.”
