A decade of dry matter mixed at fish processing plant by Landia’s chopper pump

Posted: Tuesday 13th July 2010

A dry-installed Landia Chopper Pump is set to complete 10 years of uninterrupted service at Saeby Fish Processing Plant in Denmark, one of Europe's largest, privately owned fish canning companies.

At the plant in Vendsyssel on the northern tip of Jutland, where Saeby specialize in the processing of mackerel, Landia’s MPTKR-I Chopper Pump has been successfully mixing the contents of a tank through a recirculation system before sludge is pumped to a tanker truck.

The sludge, which includes polymers, emanates from the dewatering unit, and has a dry matter content of 15 %. To handle this high dry matter content efficiently and effectively, the 18.5kW Landia Chopper Pump was built with a special feeder propeller.

Almost a decade on, the Landia Chopper Pump has worked continuously – without breakdowns - and with only routine preventative maintenance required.
