This eggplant, located in Southern California, pro¬duces approximately 6 million eggs per week. During the process and preparation of these eggs, some break and fall on the floor where they are washed into floor drains and mixed with the egg wash water.
The mixture of broken eggs and wash water is discharged to a balance tank and then sent through a settling clarifier. The settling clarifier, however, was not meeting the new EPA regulations.
Hydrocal's scheduled a trial, which immediately demonstrated that the CAF unit would achieve results well within the new regulations and a unit was installed.
