Addressing the Wastewater Challenge
Over the years, disposable wipes have become an issue of concern for residential and municipal sewer systems around the world. Wastewater officials suspect that these wipes are not biodegrading quickly enough, which is causing blockades to occur in sewers and pipes.
To address this issue, BJM Pumps released the SKG Submersible Shredder Series pump, which is designed with Dual Shredding RAD-AX technology that enables complete obliteration of flushable wipes and other solids that saturate wastewater. The SKG Series technology has made a strong impact on various, small waste water stations.
RAD-AX at a Glance
The SKG Series has a patent-pending design that employs both radial and axial shredding elements. A rotating cutter bar with serrated edges traps and shreds solids against the sharp grooves of a radial cutting ring, while multiple axial cutting bars shred any leftover material exiting the radial cutters.
All shredding components of the SKG Series are manufactured in hardened 440C Stainless Steel, with a Rockwell hardness of 55C plus, giving it durable construction for improved wear resistance and a longer service life. It relies on a high-torque, four-pole motor to ensure that difficult solids are handled more effectively. Utilizing a two-vane, chrome iron impeller, the SKG Series is extremely efficient for passing larger solids. The hardened impeller is resistant to wear, which translates into a longer service life.
