Effluent improvement

Micromac Filtration has successfully completed a major effluent treatment system design and installation project at Headland Foods, a supplier of frozen ready-meals based in north-east Lincolnshire.

Selected as Headland Foods' design and technology partner by the company's engineering manager Iain Robinson, Micromac Filtration has completely redesigned and upgraded the plant's effluent treatment infrastructure. Replacing an under-sized run-down screen that had a tendency to block, requiring manual clearing, often at night, Micromac has designed and installed a system with a new larger run-down screen with a spray wash bar, which helps prevent blocking.

As a result, Robinson reports that Headland Foods is already benefiting from lower costs associated with effluent treatment and has complete confidence that all its effluent discharges meet with the consent limits applied by Anglian Water.
