JMS has designed and installed Mega-FLOC (Horizontal Paddle Wheel Flocculator)s for over 50 years. In that time JMS has made improvements to the design of the Mega-FLOC to improve its life span and performance. JMS has made improvements to the design of the Mega-FLOC  (Horizontal Paddle Wheel Flocculator) to improve its life span and performance.  Each change has increased efficiency and lowered the flocculator maintenance requirements.

Mega-FLOC (Horizontal Paddle Wheel Flocculator) Key Features

Drive Assembly

Optimal gear motor horsepower requirements determined using the designed velocity gradient, system efficiencies, and safety factors. Available in three different arrangements; wet chain, dry chain, and direct coupled.

Drive Sprocket

JMS drive sprockets are designed and fabricated with stainless steel sprocket hub and UHMW-PE sprocket teeth. Our component selection ensures the drive sprocket works optimally and accurately engages the drive chain.

Driven Sprocket

JMS designed the driven sprocket arrangements using a split machined cast iron sprocket hub with segmental UHMW-PE teeth to accurately engage the drive chain to give the maximum chain tension does not exceed the working load of the chain.

Shaft Connections

JMS shaft connections are the standard for all flocculators. These connections utilize bored blind flanges with special welds for added strength. Each flange is grooved to the correct diameter and surface milled to parallel for strength and proper alignment.

Bearing Assembly

The JMS bearing assembly is designed to be durable and have a low life cycle cost. JMS Mega-FLOC (HPWF) uses submerged journal bearings that are manufactured with split cast stainless steal housings with UHMW-PE liners which allow for water lubrication.
