D.J. Gongol and Associates, Inc. represents the Waste-Tech XGT grit-removal system in Iowa and Nebraska. Waste-Tech's system is one of the best methods for protecting the critical equipment inside a wastewater treatment plant from the damaging effects of grit. The removal of dry inorganic solids from the wastewater stream is essential to ensuring the efficient performance of any biological treatment process.

A few reasons why Waste-Tech grit traps stand out from the rest:
  • Experience. Waste-Tech has been designing and manufacturing grit traps in the Libertyville, Illinois, and Spartanburg, South Carolina, since 1984.

  • Low energy usage. The highly efficient design of the Waste-Tech XGT grit-removal system results in very low energy usage and operational savings. Horsepower requirements are ordinarily less than 1 hp for most applications in Iowa and Nebraska.

  • Easy to maintain. The power of the XGT grit-removal system is in its design. A better design results in fewer moving parts and easier maintenance.

  • Wide range of flows. Waste-Tech grit traps can cover flows from 1.0 to more than 110 MGD. Each model is specifically designed to meet the flow requirements of the application.

  • Gravitational settlement. The Waste-Tech XGT performs better gravitational settlement than competing designs, giving you better operational efficiency, better grit removal, and exceptional separation of organics from the grit. Waste-Tech's experience has proven that the correct slope of the grit chamber, when applied at the optimal velocity of rotation, results in the most efficient removal of clean, dry inorganics from the wastewater stream.

  • Innovation. DJ Gongol & Associates was the first manufacturer's representative anywhere to put a Gorman-Rupp self-priming pump on a grit trap. Since that time, we have achieved remarkable success in many applications, and our initiative has been duplicated across the country. Gorman-Rupp grit pumps offer the same reliability as any other Gorman-Rupp self-priming pumps, but are designed to withstand the extraordinary strain of pumping grit. We would be delighted to tell you more.
