Fruit and Vegetable Processing
Fruit and vegetable processing involves many steps along the way. From conveying and washing, to cooking and canning/packaging, each one of these processes produces water that needs to be cleaned. Throughout these stages, large amounts of waste solids and organics are produced. With fruits and vegetables, high levels of total suspended solids (TSS) can easily be managed with the right equipment.
Fruits and vegetables require unique wastewater treatment per application. Each processing plant has different variables that determine TSS, flow, influent, and effluent conditions. With these conditions, we can accurately and effectively help get you the perfect equipment for your application. With plenty of installations in the fruit and vegetable processing industry, we pride ourselves on being able to deliver the best product for the job with the best equipment around.
Fruit and Vegetable processing requires water to yield good product from organic material.
Fruit and Vegetable Wastewater Treatment Products
Roto-Sieve Drum Screens are a very effective and economical method to remove waste from fruit and vegetable processing water. Screening out organic and fibrous matter from the wastewater can drastically reduce the TSS and BOD levels in the effluent system and enhance the downstream wastewater treatment processing.
Our Roto-Sieve Drum Screens are designed and customized per application to effectively target what needs to be screened out of the wastewater and ensure a high capture rate. Roto-Sieve Drum screens use a perforated plate drum to optimize and effectively remove solids from wastewater. High TSS and BOD are effectively reduced which enhances and improves downstream treatment processes.
These screenings can be further dewatered and compacted using the Shaftless Screw Press. The press catches the screenings straight from the Roto-Sieve and compacts, dewaters, and transports the screenings.
If transportation is the only concern for the screenings, the use of our Shaftless Screw Conveyor fits the job. The conveyor optimally transports screenings or product to any desired location.
Lastly, our Sludge Heat Exchangers can provide cutting-edge energy recovery and sludge heating when used in processes for digesting fruit & vegetable processing wastes.
