Product Information

Channel Monsters


For pump stations and inlet works the third generation Channel Monster® XD surpasses all existing technologies in terms of performance, durability and reduced costs. The system protects pumps and prevents ragging and clogging problems.

The patented Channel Monster integrates rotating screening drums with proven Muffin Monster® grinder technology. The system accommodates high-flows while shredding solids (such as rags, trash, rocks and wood) into particles that flow harmlessly through pumps, pipes and processes. Screening drums direct solids into the cutters and are made of 12mm stainless steel coil. JWCI also offers optional perforated screening drums with 6mm circular openings for higher capture efficiency. Channel Monster XD comes in three sizes – 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0.

Pump stations full of debris are now easier than ever to manage with the Channel Monster’s larger, extreme duty design. Our taller grinders use larger cutters and shafts, allowing it to shred large solids and handle first flush storm loading. Channel Monsters easily replaces troublesome bar screens and comminutors — helping you reduce operating and maintenance costs. Clean, powerful, reliable and cost effective – Channel Monster is the industry’s high-flow grinder of choice!
