Premier Foods are one of the largest food manufacturers in the UK with 15 sites across the country. They specialise in flavourings & seasoning, cooking sauces & accompaniments, quick meals & soups and ambient desserts.
A successful screening project involved the replacement of two 6mm escalator type screens with 250-micron rotary drum screens capable of up to 120m3/hr throughput.
The resultant savings in sludge disposal, COD reductions from the balance tank and DAF chemical requirements could equate to as much as £75,000 per annum, offering an 18 month return on investment.
The site also benefits from monthly service visits, which includes the sampling and analysis of the waste water both before and after treatment, examination and inspection of equipment, recommendations for optimisation and advice on how to maximise efficiency with the treatment plant as a whole.
