The Ashbridges Bay (Toronto) Wastewater Treatment Plant had ongoing trouble with a twin-shaft grinder, which was installed for high-grit application. As a result of high grit, the unit required thousands of dollars of refurbishment each quarter.

The city found a better solution with Vogelsang.

Through local distributor Directrik, Vogelsang installed an XRipper XRC 186 grinder, and used the existing rail system. The retrofit required no rail system changes and used the same control panel, which required no system modifications.

The XRipper twin-shaft grinder system has been installed for almost a year and has required no repairs.

“We are pleased with the decision to replace our existing unit with Vogelsang,” says a city representative. “We have had Vogelsang pumps in our facility for years and have found them to be one of the most reliable products in our plant.”

XRipper wastewater grinders from Vogelsang are the most powerful twin-shaft grinders in the industry — outperforming competitors in power, size, output and maximum pressures. The XRipper also comes with a best-in-class, two-year, 100 percent parts and labor warranty, which gives customers two years of fixed operational costs plus service and support covered directly by the manufacturer.
