MSE Hiller has installed several solids liquid separation units into the food industry, many at household names such as Branston, Burts, Diageo, Heinz, Pepsico, Quaker Oats, Kellogg’s, Kettle, Walkers and 4Ufreshproduce etc
The Hiller Decapress units are able to process high flowrates from a small footprint producing a high dry solids cake and a cleaned effluent which is easy to dispose of.
Following a competitive tender for their production facility at Trafford park Manchester, Kellogg’s installed a DP37-422VABD Hiller Decapress unit to process up to 14 m3/hr of water treatment sludge from a combination of DAF and biological processes. The machine which operates without polymer addition is able to achieve a dry solids cake of around 20 - 25% ds.
Burts chips installed a DP37-422VABD Hiller Decapress unit to process up to 10 m3/hr of combined plant wastewater. The machine which operates without polymer addition is able to achieve a dry solids cake of around 30 - 45 % ds reducing effluent disposal costs at their Plymouth site.
Starch is notoriously high in BOD and it’s removal from effluent means that it can significantly save on effluent disposal costs vis the mogden formula as well as providing a saleable product.
Potato starch solids recovery in the crisp Industry are typically a crumbly powdery white solids discharged at 60 – 70 % dry solids and Hiller has installed machines worldwide in this sector including China, Egypt, Pakistan, Poland, Thailand, Turkey and USA
Meanwhile on potato chip processing lines and potato processing plants peel waste can be recovered and dewatered to a stackable transportable mass at 22 - 30% ds.
Soil waters muds sands and silts can be dewatered to 45 – 60% ds.
New developments for the food sector include the Three phase DecaOil machines are installed where Oil, Water and solids need to be recovered in a single process stage, often at elevated temperatures. Olive oils, fish oils and mineral oils are just three examples of this.
Finally juices such as Apple, Beetroot, Carrott, Elderflower, Grape, Ginger, Garlic, Orange etc are processed on Hillertwo phase Decafood machines which produce high quality food grade products.
With enclosed, highly automated, CIP systems in food grade designs and capacities ranging from 0.2 to 120 m3/hr the Hiller DecaPress, DecaFood and DecaOil centrifuges are certainly starting to rise and shine in the food processing industry sector.
