Franklin Miller, Inc.
Since 1918, Franklin Miller has been on the forefront of size reduction technology. Today, we are an industry leader with the latest technology in grinders, screens and shaftless screws. Our Taskmaster, Super Shredder and Dimminutor grinders are designed to finely reduce tough solids so they are easily handled by pumps, belt filter presses, digestors and other process equipment. Our Spiralift screens and screening systems efficiently separate, condition and remove solids from liquids for wastewater channel installations and septage receiving applications.

The Taskmaster Titan TM20060 builds on the patented twin-shaft counter-rotating cutter design of the Taskmaster Titan. Its design features one cutting stack that intermeshes with a second one with a much larger diameter to rip, tear and shred solids entrained in liquid flow to fine particles so they can be more easily processed by pumps and other equipment. It has a higher flow and larger... more

  • The SCREENMASTER CS provides efficient cleaning of a bar screen rack and removal of solids from channel installations. The unit makes solids removal simple with its highly efficient operation. It employs a front clean/front return principle, is easy to install in new or existing channels and, at a 75-degree inclination, has a very small footprint. The design features a simple, continuous rotary... more
  • The TASKMASTER TT Grinder Receiving Station provides for a streamlined septage receiving operation. It combines Taskmaster inline-grinding technology with a tramp collector built into its stainless steel housing. The tramp trap is designed to let unshreddable solids drop out before reaching the grinder cutters. The TT Receiving System is provided either with a standard S260 reversing... more
  • TASKMASTER grinders now are available complete with a pre-engineered FRP manhole. The system is constructed with a built-in channel set up for a standard TM8500 channel grinder. The complete manhole system can quickly be implemented, protecting downstream equipment and providing savings for the district. The manhole design makes accessing the grinder as easy as lifting a hatch. more
  • The Spiralift SL fine screens, washes, transports and compacts wastewater solids while leaving essential organics in the flow. The easy-to-install, fully integrated system includes a Taskmaster7 grinder, a shaftless screw screen and a PLC-based control system that coordinates the system=s normal and special functions and uses flow level data to cycle the screw to minimize power and wear. Units... more
  • The Dimminutor open-channel grinder reduces wastewater solids in open-channel installations. It features a high-capacity, low head loss design. It also features individually replaceable hardened stainless steel cutters, a heavy-duty stainless steel semi-circular screen, submersible explosion-proof motor, an S250 automatic reversing controller, and a choice of channel frames for easy installation... more
  • The TASKMASTER TITAN TM22000 is a rugged channel grinder that combines industrial shredding performance with a high flow capability and low headloss. This powerful unit has a much larger throat opening than the prior TITAN and can easily handle the largest, bulkiest institutional solids. The TM22000 employs two counter-rotating shafts and the finely ground output provides excellent protection of... more
  • The Dimminutor provides effective, automatic screening and grinding of wastewater solids in straight through channels and wet wells. This powerful unit reduces plastics, wood, rags and other solids to fine bits, enhancing plant operation and improving the reliability of pumps and other downstream equipment. The Dimminutor has an intrinsically open design to handle high flow rates with low head-... more
  • The SCREENMASTER CS provides efficient cleaning of a bar screen rack and removal of solids from channel installations. It is easy to install in new or existing channels and at a 75-degree inclination, has a very small footprint. The SCREENMASTER is fully constructed of stainless steel and is supplied complete with an S320 Program Controller. more
  • TASKMASTER TM8500 series inline grinders quickly and effectively reduce sewage and sludge solids to fine particles directly in pipeline systems. Along with Cutter Cartridge technology, these grinders feature a convenient Adrop-in@ housing. The TM8500 has two counter rotating stacks that intermesh at close clearance to shear and shred solids into fine bits. System can be installed in sewage... more
  • The Super Shredder in-line disintegrator easily reduces tough solids directly in sludge or raw sewage lines. The unit combines grinding capabilities with streamlined, easy-to-maintain features. Its innovative design provides a high level of open area to fluid flow, making it ideal for applications requiring a heavy-duty size reduction processor that can handle high flows with minimal head loss. more
  • The Spiralift SLX system provides fine screening for heavy prison and institutional wastewater applications. This system screens, washes, conveys and compacts concentrated solids including clothing, sneakers, wood and other debris that clog and cause backups in units not built for heavy effluent. The unit features a heavy shredder with a 15-hp motor and drive coupled with an oversized auger-style... more

  • The Autorake Model 1400 is a front-cleaned, hydraulic bar screen adapted for deep channel installations. Its design coordinates the motion of a mobile rake comb, which travels up and down driven by a hydraulic motor and sprocket. As the rake comb reaches the bottom of the screen, it turns 90 degrees and inserts its tines into the bar slots. The motor, rotating in reverse, lifts trapped screenings... more
