JWC Environmental Introduces Monster Blind Diagnostic System (MBDS)

Costa Mesa, CA - JWC Environmental has added even more features to their popular line of finescreens with the development of Monster Blind Diagnostic System (MBDS). This patent pending feature detects the percent blinding factor of a screen and notifies plant operational staff about screen performance. An optional feature, MBDS can also control additional cleaning steps, such as hot water spray wash or automatic brush adjustment to improve the screen's operating efficiency.

"No one else in the screening market has developed a system to tell the customer how efficiently the screen is operating," said Scott Kelly, JWC Director of National Sales.

One of the chief benefits of MBDS is that it allows the screen to work at optimal efficiency by allowing operators to continually monitor the average blinding level for the screen. It detects and alerts operators to situations such as heavy solids loading (grease), the need to adjust the cleaning brush (if utilized), or the need to replace spray nozzle(s).

"The MBDS is another example of JWC's constantly improving technology. In addition, MBDS adds to our credibility and proves we are the market leader in finescreen technology," added Kelly.

MBDS is an optional feature available for the entire Monster Separation System® family of fine screens, including Finescreen Monster®, Bandscreen Monster®, Chain & Rake Monster® and Catenary MonsterTM.
