A southern California chimichanga manufacturing facility was facing ever-growing sewer surcharge fees. The plant was using a multi-stage grease trap to float greases and oils and settle particulate solids. Expected production growth was already straining this inadequate treatment process. A Hydro MicroScreen™ system was demonstrated at the plant and the lab-verified performance was outstanding!
Laboratory Verified Performance
Average Removal Results
Total Suspended Solids (TSS) 79%
Fat, Oil, and Grease (FOG) 52%
Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) 37%
Compressed Solids (TS) 32%
Because of the demonstration project, a 52” Hydro MicroScreen™ system was selected that could handle CIP conditions. The system rapidly paid for itself with a ROI of <7 months in surcharge reduction alone, captured by-product with re-use options was a bonus benefit!
