Comparing Performance: Hydro MicroScreen™ vs. Hydrosieve
Hydro International’s Hydro MicroScreen™ system was piloted for a large fruit and vegetable processing plant in southwestern New Jersey. The plant was looking to upgrade its primary treatment system and needed to reduce both Total Suspended Solids (TSS) and particulate Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) loading.
The Hydro MicroScreen™ was tested side-by-side against their existing Hyrosieve on their jalapeño processing flow. Sample effluent from both systems was sent to a laboratory for independent analysis to verify results.
The Jalapeño process effluent was tested for both TSS and particulate BOD removal. The Hydro MicroScreen™ was shown to remove nearly twice the amount of TSS as the Hydrosieve as well as the same amount of particulate BOD (47%).
