Advantages and Disadvantages of Comminutor and Grinder

A major advantage of using communitors and grinders is that removal of grit reduces damage and maintenance to downstream processes.

Comminutors and grinders also eliminate screenings handling and disposal, which may improve the aesthetics of the plant, reducing odors, flies, and the unsightliness associated with screenings. Some recently developed grinders can chop, remove, wash, and compact the screenings.

The use of comminutors in cold weather eliminates the need to prevent collected screenings from freezing.
