Meat Cutting and Processing
A large meat processing plant in Michigan produces a variety of cold cut meats for prepackaged supermarket sales and loaves for slice-to-order outlets.
This USFDA certified facility is focused on providing top product quality and protecting public safety. Maintaining efficient operational processes are necessary to meeting consumer expectations as well as making company bottom line objectives. Meat processing requires the conveyance of many process fluids and wastes. Operational success is contingent upon moving these liquids efficiently and continuously.
The plant was experiencing continual problems with their non-clog submersible pumps. The problematic cast iron submersible pumps controlled evacuation of the plant’s wet wells. These 10 horsepower, 4” non-clog units were installed in the main lift station that pumped from the factory’s wastewater pretreatment plant to the city’s force main sewer.
