The RetrievOx™ aeration system is an aeration device utilized in numerous wastewater treatment applications, including biological processes, sludge digestion, holding tanks and post aeration. Each RetrievOx™ assembly consists of a grid of tubular fine bubble diffusers, guide track, and hoisting mechanism. The grids are located around the perimeter of the tank for access from walkways or work platforms. A portable electric winch is utilized to raise the diffuser grid to the top of the tank where it is accessible by plant staff for inspection, cleaning and replacement of diffusers.

LGR’s new Ultraportable Methane/Acetylene Analyzer (UMAA) reports measurements of methane, acetylene and water vapor simultaneously in a package that is compact, crushproof and travels anywhere. Small enough to be carried on-board aircraft (TSA approved size) and requiring about 60 watts (including pump), the UMAA offers opportunities to measure anywhere. As with all LGR instruments, the UMAA is simple to use which makes it ideal for landfill tracer studies, compliance monitoring, leak detection, air quality studies, process monitoring, and wherever measurements of methane, acetylene and water vapor are needed.
Bye-bye manual testing: Replaced by new on-line gas analyzer. This case study examines how a meat processing company made the switch from manually and randomly testing of its packages five times each day to an on-line headspace analyzer for its Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) products.
A large vegetable processing facility was experiencing problems with its lagoon surface aerators. The company’s treatment process includes a collection and screening assembly, two anaerobic stabilization ponds and a 40 million gallon aerated lagoon.
Today’s meat processors must overcome many challenges. X-Ray, Metal Detection, and Checkweighing have become clear choices in delivering the best solution to overcome these challenges.
This Case Study examines how and ERP system helps eliminate manual data entry, tracks product both forward and backward in the supply chain, and helps in conducting mock recalls for third-party audits.
The food & beverage industry, like many others, where the production system relies on processing a range of individual, expensive materials, is in a perpetual pursuit for improved production efficiency and flexibility. Each individual component within the processing environment is assessed for performance and its interoperability with the other components within the system. Every element has the potential to act as an enabler and as a limiter of throughput while also having to meet the increasing demands set by industry safety standards and local legislation.
In addition to traditional brick-and-mortar facilities, there are a range of alternative facility designs, including modular container, modular stick-built, isolator, and autonomous cleanroom POD designs
In the Pilbara region of Western Australia, 1,200 kilometers northeast of Perth, Roy Hill Iron Ore (Roy Hill) is developing an open pit, bulk mining facility capable of processing 55 megatons of iron ore annually. Set to be the country’s largest iron ore mining operation, the AUD 10 billion project includes a water supply and dewatering network spanning 300 square kilometers that needs continuous adapting to meet the changing mining and ore processing requirements over the 20-year life of the mine (LOM).
If any of your activities include processing, packaging, labeling, storing, selling and/ or shipping seafood products, then traceability plays a key role in your working life. The need for lot tracking backwards and forwards across the supply chain has never been more front-of-mind than today, in this era of growing pressure for fast, effective recalls – that pressure being applied by the government, your customers and their customers (consumers).
Producers of edible oils and related by-products are best served by designing new processing plants and upgrading existing ones with highly integrated, data-driven digitalization technologies, which can help lower fixed costs to boost operating margins.
A chemical processing company in Beumont, Texas was having difficultly finding an instrument that could monitor the level on various chemical tanks with very corrosive properties.
Foods from tree nuts require constant attention to eliminate contamination. This case study shows how metal detectors and magnetic separation equipment maintain product purity at Cache Creek Foods.
When it comes to point of sale (POS) and online ordering technology, it can be difficult for small and medium sized businesses (SMB) to compete with the resources of large chain competitors. Gone are the days where it was enough to have an in-store POS system. In today’s omnichannel marketplace, it’s imperative for restaurants and retailers to have a website. Not only that, but consumers have come to expect the convenience of online ordering. For SMBs, the costs (not to mention the time) to keep POS and online ordering technologies functioning seamlessly, are dizzying.
Water is a necessary component of producing a safe and wholesome source of protein. While the poultry and the egg industry has a long history of efficiently utilizing water in poultry and egg processing plants, the industry consistently faces new challenges ranging from bacteria thresholds in stormwater to the carryover of antimicrobial compounds into wastewater treatment plants.
