Handling system for slaughterhouse waste - practical examples

Handling system for slaughterhouse waste - practical examples

Hello all,

we are looking for ways to handle diverse slaughterhouse wastes. The system should be able to store the wastes as they are produced, macerate them, possibly sterilize them, and dose them into subsequent handling equipment.

We are experienced with pumpable substrates and how to handle them, and with less hazardous solid stuff. But we need ideas how to move, store and handle the stuff until we have treated it far enough to pump it. We also have ideas to macerate/chop up the stuff, but are open to other solutions specialized to slaughterhouse wastes.

So, I'd appreciate if you can provide links to producers of relevant technology, articles describing similiar plants or best practices.

Just an idea how to move that stuff: Perhaps you know them, perhaps you don't. But they manufacture pumps which are especially designed to pump untreated slaughterhouse waste.

I was not familiar with that company. I know application where Putzmeister Concrete Pumps are used in similiar applications - though I have not seen them pump pork legs!
Anyway, interesting, thanks. Further ideas are welcome.

When you come across a pump that will "pump" pork legs, please let us know.
