Fish processing requires significant volumes of clean water.
The use of water is essential in the core processing operations including washing, gutting, filleting and skinning. Plus, secondary processes including brining and shellfish cooking.
The Food Safety Regulations demand that water used by fish processors is clean water. As a result, water must be cleaned to drinking water standards, or clean seawater (with a few exceptions).
Suggested solutions for cleaning water will taken into account the nature and volume of effluent. Plus, the conditions of consent to discharge. However, popular options (depending on specific applications) include Static Screens and Sieves for solid-liquid separation, Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) plant and Biological Treatment systems.
If the effluent contains a low percentage of suspended material but high Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) it will normally require biological (secondary) treatment. We offer complete wastewater treatment solutions including everything from initial audit and laboratory testing to installation and final commissioning. In addition to purchase options, we also offer short-term or long-term plant and equipment hire.
