Waste Water Treatment

Mixer Application Data Sheet

VEGETABLE WASTE PROCESSING

Description

MATERIAL: Waste water stream from a potato chip manufacturing facility including
skins, grit and potato “eyes”.

PROBLEM: Potato eyes plug irrigation spray nozzles. (This waste water is directly
applied to farmers fields). To unclog spray nozzles, a very long walk is
usually required.

RESULTS: Irregation spray nozzles do not plug. Entire campaign of waste water
dispensed onto fields without any plugging.

AB MIXER: Model 6 x 3 HD Dicon with abrasion resistant Borotec teeth and 1/8″
discharge grid.

EQUIPMENT REPLACED: In-line shredder.

BENEFITS: Large quantities of waste water can be held during the winter months. Even
though this encourages the development of potato eyes, the Dicon is able
to rip, shred and delump these stringy materials.
