JMS has designed the Mega-FLOC (Vertical Paddle Wheel Flocculator) to have all of the moving parts above the water line. This allows for plant personal to have easier maintenance and less down time. To protect the gear reducer and ensure the longest possible component life, a radial thrust bearing takes the brunt of all loads (vertical, axial, radial, etc.). Learn more about the innovation JMS has done with the Mega-FLOC (VPWF) by watching the video or reading about the improvements below.
Mega-FLOC (Vertical Paddle Wheel Flocculator) Key Features
The JMS Chain coupling is to designed to help transfer torque from the drive motor to the flocculator shaft.
Radial Thrust Bearing
The JMS Radial Thrust Bearing is designed to absorb vertical and radial loads. With this JMS only feature it reduces the stress of the vertical load on the drive motor.
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.
Kerry Dissinger has been employed by JMS for the last 10 years, and currently holds the position of Vice President. Prior to receiving a BS degree in Electro Mechanical Engineering, Kerry served for 3 years as a US Army Paratrooper stationed at Fort Bragg, NC. He also served 6 years in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard. Kerry’s nearly 20 years of experience in the water and wastewater industry includes 10 years at Brentwood Industries where he was mentored by the esteemed Dr. McDowell. With his strong background in the water and wastewater process, particularly sedimentation, he is focused on continued growth and innovation, holding several active patents for JMS products. One of Kerry’s favorite sayings is: It’s not about ideas; it’s about making ideas happen.
