Mud Recovery Project:

Wash water was being used for potato cleaning. The potato’s arrived at the factory direct from the farm and frequently carried a significant amount of mud with them. The existing system relied on mud settlement with tanker removal several times per week. The objective was to remove the mud utilising a filter press and feed into containers that could easily transported with the mud returned to the land.

Existing Paramaters:

  • Potato Washing
  • Water recirculation
  • Wash water tank
  • Unaided mud settlement
  • Tanker removal 2 to 3 times/ week
  • Spiralling disposal costs

New parameters:

  • New wash water tank
  • Continuous treatment stream
  • Polymer/ flocculent dosing
  • Filter Press
  • Mud recovered & returned to land

  • Design and supply of new wash tank.
