Emergency DAF lane clean, removing 50 tonnes of silt that consisted of bone materials

Our crews worked all weekend helping a client prevent their animal bi-product food processing plant from going into an unplanned shutdown.  We performed an emergency DAF lane clean, removing 50 tonnes of silt that consisted of bone materials emulsified to 3mm.   With the call coming in overnight on the Thursday, we had surveyed the job, identified the safe system of work and mobilised the crew by 10am the following day and then worked continuously through the weekend.  We prevented a major plant shutdown, with the processing lines back up and running for the Monday morning start. Using a combination of Hypervacs and Artics, our crews removed this Cat 3 waste stream and finished by jetting and washing down the DAF lanes.   We then had to promptly dispose of the animal bi-product waste using an approved disposal location near Northampton. To prevent the build of up so much silt that would reduce future plant optimisation, we are now working with our client to introduce a periodic cleaning regime of all their pits, interceptors and storage tanks on site.

For any queries regarding how Celvac can help you remove waste from your processing plant, on either a planned or emergency basis, then get in touch.  We are APHA registered for the transportation of Cat 1 and Cat 3 Animal Bi-products and derived products and have a variety of extraction and screening units that can tackle all types of waste, either in liquid or dry form.  We have established relationships with approved disposal routes across the UK and a highly skilled and willing workforce who can be relied on to work safely and to the highest standards.
