Wastewater Treatment: Replacing Comminutors and Sewage Grinders

Sewage Grinders, also known as comminutors, are shredding and screening devices widely used in wastewater treatment plants and pumping stations. Comminutors break down wastewater solids in plant headworks and pump stations. The equipment gets heavy use and is a critical part of the wastewater treatment process.

Replacing Comminutors

When comminutors break down or need replacement parts, it is important to service them and get them operational again quickly. Many parts can be hard to find because of the long service life of some comminutors. If they’re deactivated or bypassed due to difficulty in locating parts or replacement units, this can result in larger, more costly problems such as clogged pumps or operation issues in aeration basins and digesters.
