Poultry Application: System Solution

The largest US turkey producer had a primary clarifier that was failing and forcing them out of compliance. FRC brought in a rental DAF for proof of concept for our solution. The permanent system was then designed using reactor tanks upstream of the DAF in order to adjust to the large change in flow rates. The existing clarifier was repurposed as a temporary equalization tank until a proper equalization system could be installed. The existing rotary drum screen remained for removal of coarse solids.

Design Data

FRC Solution

  • Equalization – Homogenize wastewater for consistent wastewater characteristics. Aeration mixing is provided to prevent anoxic conditions and formation of ammonia
  • Reactor Tanks – Chemicals dosed to precipitate the colloidal solids and oil emulsifications
  • Primary High Rate DAF – Float the precipitated solids thereby removing Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Oils and Grease (O&G), and insoluble Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD)
