Recovering loss in Food Processing Use of decanters, hydrocyclones, DAF and Save-Alls means lost product & profits! Baleen is readily integrated into existing operations via gravity-fed piping with recovered screenings (clean product) made ready for offsite cartage and lean filtrate returned for further treatment. In poultry processing, it is common to find 2,000 ppm of saleable by-product is lost as effluent sludge. One Baleen ‘120-Series plant operating at 80-microns will reclaim as much as 2 metric-tonne per hour. At AU$80 per Tonne (Net Profit) and 4,000 operating hours (Per Annum) Baleen delivers exceptional return on investment. Enhancing Biogas Production Efficiency In Biogas production, there are several types of non-to- low biodegradable material that must be removed prior to Anaerobic Digestion (AD) to improve efficiency (and eliminate build-up), such as; sand and grit, plastics and packaging, hair, fibre, and rag. With these non-desirable materials removed, biogas volumes can be maximised by thickening feedstock to a solids concentration of 8-12% DS when using Baleen. Direct capital and operating benefits include reduced AD vessel volume requirement, increased energy recovery and onsite water re-use opportunity. Enhancing Process Water Treatment Efficiency Opportunities exist for Baleen in other market applications in which centrifuges, membranes and drying beds are commonly in service, all of which lose product (whether water, or its waste constituency). Examples include filter backwash reclamation (municipal & agricultural), crude or biomass from decanter “All the water water we have is all the water we will have. A ‘once-use and dispose’ mindset is not sustainable.”
