Shropshire abattoir boosts treatment capacity to deal with increased business

Euro Quality Lambs (EQL) is boosting its wastewater treatment capacity at its abattoir in Craven Arms, Shropshire, to help deal with the company’s growth. 

Following on from improvements and additions to operations in the abattoir, the company found that it had scope to further increase throughput, leading the business to upgrade its wastewater treatment. To achieve this, the abattoir will be utilising equipment from Siltbuster Process Solutions (SPS).

As part of its daily processing operations, wastewater is produced regularly by EQL. However, before it is discharged from the site, the water must meet local water authority consent levels. To boost wastewater capacity, SPS will install its Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) unit D50 at the beginning of June.

This new system will be replacing the old one which EQL purchased from SPS in 2013.

“SPS have been very good at understanding our business and coming up with the right solution for our changing needs,” commented Rizvan Khalid, executive director at EQL.

“They have a very knowledgeable team, with a pragmatic approach to finding the best fit for our processes. I’m looking forward to seeing the new equipment in operation.”

David Gaskill, proposal manager at SPS, said the company was looking forward to developing its relationship with EQL further.

“We are delighted to continue the valued relationship with EQL and to provide a solution for the changing treatment requirements of a progressive business,” he said. “The extensive range of Siltbuster DAF units means we can select the most appropriately sized model, and we look forward to working with EQL in implementing the changeover.”
