Due to the nature of the substances, output from an animal processing plant contains a lot of large waste particles. Large waste particles can pose a considerable risk if they are not dealt with properly. Allowing large waste particles to enter the pump station and mains sewer can lead to blockages; an issue that can ultimately cause environmental and public health issues. When sizing up the requirements of the processing plant, we know we had to deliver the following: sufficient pumping capability, adequate storage and a way to reduce the risk of large particles and feathers.
After assessing the situation and the requirements of the processing plant, Dutypoint proposed a solution to the consultant. Our team arrived on site and installed a heavy-duty Sulzer Muffin Monster Grinder in its own precast chamber. This robust and powerful piece of equipment can grind down the solids into smaller particles.
The smaller particles are now gravity fed down to a Dutypoint polyethylene pump chamber that contains two grinder pumps. As the output is now much more manageable, it can be pumped up to the mains sewer. Additional to the pump chamber, storage was required in the event of ‘something not going right’, so we provided two horizontal back up storage chambers.
