Many meat and poultry processing companies install dissolved air flotation (DAF) systems to remove “pollution” from process water. The skimmings recovered by such DAF set-ups usually contain high levels of fat and proteins that can have commercial value.
The Alfa Laval Centriskim system is ideal for removing water from DAF skimmings, as well as for recovering protein solids and technical fat. This significantly reduces the cost of sludge disposal, as well as helping eliminate other related problems.
This technology makes it possible to recover most of the fats that would otherwise go to waste, resulting in a significant potential revenue stream.
