Napa Valley olive oil producer increases profitability and cuts treatment costs

Find out how with an expert consultation.

In a trial a single Hydro-Industrial MicroScreen™ ultrafine rotating belt screening system successfully captured 89% of bulk suspended solids (TSS) for one Napa Valley olive oil producer.

Removing solids prior to clarification improved the quality of the plant’s wash water effluent, allowed more effective use of their clarification systems, and enabled quicker re-use of valuable water assets.

The system captured significantly more of the producer’s pomace than the existing conventional screening system—thereby increasing the value of trucked pomace volume and reducing transportation costs.

The Hydro-Industrial MicroScreen™ simultaneously increased the profitability of their pomace recovery operation and reduced their wastewater treatment costs.
