This video shows our MM-20/1000 Mighty Monitor Demucker System in operation in northern Canada. Trucks come in caked with grit, frozen mud and snow.

 

Using the hand-held wand, the operators can easily vary the flow from stream to cone to safely and effectively wash all parts of the vehicle.

Since the MM-20/1000 produces a powerful 20 gpm @ 1000 psi stream, this type of cleaning is much quicker than using a standard pressure washer.

Highly recommended for the cleaning of heavy construction or mining equipment and trucks, our revolutionary demucking systems clean with the power of a fire hose but use a fraction of the water.

Our demuckers will quickly remove heavy accumulations of dirt, clay, ice, and mud from all sorts of equipment – saving both time and water.  Depending on your application, we have smaller units with flowrates from 8 to 20 gpm and pressures from 300 to 2000 psi. All of them are much quicker than a standard pressure washer!

All types of demucking can be done by easily switching from a long-range stream to a close-up cone stray with a click of the wand.

This video shows our MM-20/1000 Mighty Monitor Demucker System operating in northern Canada. Trucks come in from the field caked with grit, frozen mud and snow and leave a short time later, clean and ready for service.

“I also want to let you know how impressed I was with all of the JDI equipment. Every piece of equipment you provided was exceptionally well constructed. I am thoroughly impressed with everything!”

“Everything I have seen and heard so far indicates that they are very happy with the demuckers. They are even creeping into the building and washing trucks every chance they get as ‘trial runs’, even before the contractor has officially turned the project over to them.”  – Brian S.                                                                                                        

Issues: A very large mining operation was rehabbing its existing wash pad and adding a new one. As with most mining operations, most of their vehicles are very large and, therefore, can carry a large amount of solids into the wash bay. These solids get caked into every surface of the vehicles.

The engineers designing their new building contacted us to assist with washing and treatment equipment and maximize their wash bay design.

Solution:  We worked closely with their engineers to first design a very efficient solids handling and settling system consisting of trenches, sumps and a settling basin.

Once we completed the design, we recommended a number of washing systems to augment their pressure washing systems.  Due to the fact that they had a variety of vehicles and equipment, they decided on dual 20 GPM @ 1000 psi demucking systems, an undercarriage wash and monitor system for washing. One demucking will be used also be used to supply the undercarriage wash system.

For their application, we also developed a very effective cleaning system which included multiple compact water monitors placed strategically in the wash bay. Each monitor system will supply 100 gpm @ 100 psi. For easy movement, the wash monitors are attached to custom steel trollies that are mounted on steel rails inside the wash bay.  It can be easily customized with a wide range of nozzles selections.

Since they would be washing in different wash areas, we then coordinated with the electrical engineers to integrate all of the remote controls so the systems could be easily controlled by a small crew.

After washing, the water is treated so that it can be re-used by a complete self-contained system, capable of processing 100 gpm.  It is a Closed Loop Carbon Treatment System so there is zero fluid discharge to the facilities’ surroundings.  The system includes a clarifier oil water separator to remove oils, ozone to remove odors and multi-level filtration to remove of particles greater than 10 microns in size, substantially all emulsified oils, waxes and other volatile organic compounds.

All of the systems were easily upgraded to meet mine safety standards.

TANK:  The tank shall be a single wall construction of 11 gauge stainless steel conforming to ASTM A240, type 304 stainless steel. Welding will be in accordance with AWS D1.1 to provide a watertight tank that will not warp or deform under load.

PIPE CONNECTIONS: All pipe connections 3” and smaller are FNPT couplings. All connections 4“ and larger are flat face flanges with ANSI 150 pound standard bolt circle.

LIFTING LUGS:  The tank shall be provided with properly sized lifting lugs for handling and installation.

COVERS:  The tank will be provided with vapor tight covers for vapor control. Gas vents and suitable access openings to each compartment will be provided. The covers shall be constructed of marine grade aluminum and will be fastened in place. A gasket shall be provided for vapor tightness. 3/8-16 bolts and threaded knobs will be provided for cover attachment.

INLET COMPARTMENT & INCLINED PLATES:  The inlet chamber shall be comprised of a non-clog diffuser to distribute the flow across the width of the chamber. The inlet compartment shall be of sufficient volume to effectively reduce influent suspended solids, dissipate energy and begin separation. The inclined plates will sit elevated on top of a sludge chamber. As the water moves upwards the suspended particles have their upwards velocity interrupted by the inclined plates. These particles drop down and slide down the inclined plate and join larger previously settled particles in sludge hopper. The sludge compartment will be provided to retain settleable solids.

SEPARATION CHAMBER:  The oil separation chamber shall contain HD Q-PAC Coalescing Media containing a minimum of 132 square feet per cubic foot of effective coalescing surface area. The medias needle like elements (plates) shall be at 90 degrees to the horizontal or longitudinal axis of the separator. Spacing between these elements shall be spaced 3/16” apart for the removal of a minimum of 99.9% of free droplets 20 micron in size or greater. The elements are positioned to create an angle of repose of 90 degrees to facilitate the removal of solids that may tend to build up on the coalescing surfaces, which would increase velocities to the point of discharging an unacceptable effluent.

Laminar flow with a Reynolds Number of less than 500 at a maximum designed flow rate shall be maintained throughout the separator packed bed including entrance and exit so as to prevent re-entrainment of oils with water. Flow through the polypropylene coalescing media shall be crossflow perpendicular to the vertical media elements such that all 132 square feet/cubic foot of coalescing media is available for contact with the coalescing surfaces.

None of the coalescing media surfaces shall be pointing upward so as not to be available for contact with the cross-flowing oily water. The media shall have a minimum of 87% void volume to facilitate sludge and dirt particles as they fall off the vertical elements and settle in the sludge compartment. The media when installed in crossflow OWS shall meet US EPA Method 413.2 and also European Standard 858-1.

BAFFLES:  The tank shall be provided with an oil retention & underflow weir, and overflow weir. The underflow weir will be positioned to prevent re-suspension of settled solids.

SLUDGE CHAMBER:  The sludge chamber shall be located prior to the coalescing compartment for the settling of any solids. It shall also prevent any solids from entering the clean water chamber.

OIL SKIMMER:  The clarifier compartment and the oil separation compartment will be provided with rotatable pipe skimmers for gravity decanting of the separated oil to a product storage tank.

CLEAN WATER CHAMBER:  The tank will be provided with a clean water chamber which allows the water to leave the separator by pumped flow through the clean water outlet port.

VENTS: 2″ vents will be provided for vent piping to atmosphere.

PUMP TRANSFER SYSTEM:  The system is provided with either an electric powered or air-powered diaphragm transfer pump. Electric motor can be 110V/240V/480V. Pump is installed near the SPT system. A screen should be placed on the pump intake to reduce the amount of solids entering the system.

CF-CP Media (Cross-Flow/Corrugated Plate) Oil Water Separator Media
Introduced a new coalescing media with a corrugated, cross-flow design.

In many washing applications, huge volumes of solids are generated during the washing process. This is especially true in the construction and mining industries. Some of the heavier solids drop out of suspension quickly while others get entrained in the oily wastewater.

To insure our oil water separators do not clog in these high solids washing applications, we have developed a new corrugated plate coalescing media with a cross-flow design.

This new media design is a series of plates curved in a simple wave shape. As the water enters the separator, the flow is directed evenly across the surface of the media plates. The solids are captured and fall to the trough area of the corrugated plates below and the oils rise and stick to the trough area of the plates above.

The separator design maintains laminar flow throughout the media so the oil and solids do not remix. Separated oil flows upwards along the plates to the top of the separator where it can be removed and solids slide down the smooth corrugated plates to the hopper area where they can be easily removed.

  • Available in stainless steel, PVC, HPVC and polypropylene
  • Plate spacing of ½”, ¾” or 1 ¼” depending on application
  • Supplied in blocks for easy installation and removal

By coupling high efficiency separation with easy maintenance of this new media, you will ensure your oil water separator operates at peak performance in high solids applications.

In some applications, a higher efficiency media is required for environmental concerns. This media uses its high surface to volume ratio to provide extremely efficient oil/ water/ solids separation.

This media is constructed of oleophilic coalescing plates arranged in a cross-fluted configura­tion that provides between 31–69 square feet of oil coalesc­ing surface and 7–17 square feet of solids settling area per cubic foot of media. Each plate has a series of angled ribs, which are sloped from the bottom of the separa­tion chamber to the top at a 60° angle establishing a com­pound inclined surface.

  • Available in stainless steel, PVC, HPVC, polypropylene and stainless steel
  • Vertical slant rib plate spacing of ½”, ¾” or 1 ¼” with slant ribs alternating direction by 90°
  • Supplied in 1’ cubes with optional stainless steel frames for easy installation and removal

The separator and media design maintains a sinusoidal laminar flow throughout the media so the maximum amount of oil separation is achieved. Coalesced oil can flow unimpeded along the plate surfaces to the top of the separator where it is easily removed.

Our standard media has vastly superior properties compared to the traditional media used in oil-water separators. These properties result in a more efficient and effective separation than that attained by traditional coalescing media.

  • A larger amount of surface area per cubic foot of media allows for greater oil drop coalescence. This media has 132 ft2/ft3 surface area for oil droplets to contact. Other typical coalescing media have about 48 ft2/ft3 to 68 ft2/ft3.
  • A more efficient first step separation reduces the need for a second polishing step. Our media removes 99.9% of oil droplets 20 microns in size and larger. This meets EPA Method 1664 Revision A and European Standard EN 858-1.
  • An open design eliminates trapping of particles and subsequent clogging of water channels. Oil water separators with this media require fewer maintenance shut-downs and separates oil and water faster.
  • Where higher-than-normal operating temperatures are required, our media outperforms its competitors. It works effectively in temperatures up to 212°F, versus a maximum temperature of about 120°F for competing media.

Even though the terms “Oil Interceptors” and “Oil Water Separators” are often used
interchangeably, they are very different systems.

Interceptors

Oil interceptors
Oil interceptors are designed for use in drain lines where oils, sediment and other liquids are intercepted.

Oil interceptors are typically used in low flow drain lines where small quantities of oils, sediment
and other liquid contaminants can be “intercepted”. These drain lines may come from variety of
facilities including covered parking garages, machine shops, service stations, and manufacturing
facilities.

Usually constructed of steel, fiberglass or plastic, interceptors are simple systems which include a
baffle plate, a solids bucket, and a separation area. As the water enters the interceptor, a baffle
plate reduces the flow and turbulence of the incoming water which helps to drop out some solids
and sludge.

A low flow rate and little turbulence permits the oils and other light density to slowly separate from
the water and rise to the top of the separation area. From there, relatively oil-free water is
discharged to the sewer.

Oil Water Separators

In comparison, Oil Water Separators have a far more sophisticated and efficient design. They are used in higher volume applications such as industrial wash operations, parking lots, re-fueling facilities and military installations where there is a potential for a much higher volume of water, oil, and contaminants.

The standard oil water separator is a steel or stainless steel tank containing an inlet compartment, baffles system, sludge chamber, separation chamber with coalescing media, and clean water outlet chamber.

The water enters the inlet compartment where the oil separation process begins. Here, baffles slow down the water flow which causes some of the solids to drop out of suspension. Next, parallel corrugated coalescing media in the separation chamber cause the oil droplets in the water to coalesce together, and increase in size until they separate from the water. This coalescing media, with an internal structure of interconnecting channels, can remove essentially all free and dispersed, non-emulsified oils to an effluent concentration of less than 5 ppm – which is acceptable for discharge to most municipal sewer systems.
