SLUDGE DEWATERING PILOT FOR MEAT PROCESSOR

Dewatering Screw Press (DSP)

Food and Beverage

Wingfield, South Australia

BACKGROUND

A meat processing plant in Adelaide wanted to reduce its disposal costs for the sludge from its Dissolved Air Floatation (DAF) plant. Following a technical review of different sludge dewatering processes a Dewatering Screw Press (DSP) was identified as the best solution in the application.
