XPO Logistics (Birds Eye) had their pea processing season coming up and previously faced issues with odour and overloaded solids going through to Yorkshire Waters local Saltend Waste water treatment works.
Yorkshire Water were investing £35m to upgrade the works however they wanted XPO Logistics to treat their peak load throughout the pea processing season to be treated directly at source.
The Overall Objective
XPO Logistics required a treatment system capable of treating large flows of over 200m³/hr at its peak whilst reducing the TSS and neutralising the pH levels.
Siltbuster Process Solutions proposed an entire treatment plant consisting of a 100m³ Balance Tank with mixers for coarse pH correction, a chemical mix tank, a dosing container, 2 DAF units plus a final monitoring tank and finally sludge forwarding pumps with storage tank and centrifuge.
The SPS team were able to install and commission the plant within 3 weeks and provided operator training to enable XPO to run the plant for the duration of the pea process season.
