Euro Quality Lambs are a lamb and sheep abattoir in Craven Arms, Shropshire. They produce 15,000 carcasses a week and produce a variety of lamb products to their customers throughout Europe.
The Overall Objective
As part of its processing operation, waste water is produced each day that requires treatment before discharge. Previously EQL had a smaller Siltbuster unit but due to increasing demand they required a unit that could cope with the increased capacity.
Siltbuster Process Solutions were able to install a D50 DAF to cope with the increased capacity up to 50m³/h within the limited space on site. The unit also ensured they could increase their capacity whilst maintaining the level of treatment quality which could remove 94% of suspended solids, 79% of COD and 96% of total phosphate.
Rizvan Khalid, Executive Director at EQL said: “SPS have been very good at understanding our needs and coming up with the right solution for our changing needs. They have a very knowledgeable team with a pragmatic approach to finding the best fit for our processes. I’m looking forward to seeing the new equipment in operation.”
