Pump cuts cheese at Carrigbyrne AD plant

The Carrigbyrne Farmhouse Cheese Company, in conjunction with its sister company Ballyshannon Recycling has introduced a pump and a macerator from Börger to help process slurry and food waste for its AD plant.

 


Manufacturers of St Killian, one of Ireland’s most popular farmhouse cheeses, the family-run, award-winning Carrigbyrne Farmhouse Cheese Company chose Börger partly to meet Animal By-Products legislation, as owner Patrick Berridge explains:

“Börger were able to guarantee that their pump and macerator would meet the specific EU requirement for a maximum particle size of 12mm for treatment of waste at 70°C for 1 hour”, he said.

Located at Adamstown, County Wexford, the anaerobic digester at Carrigbyrne’s 198-acre dairy farm produces 1100cubic metres of biogas per day, supplying power for the cheese making process, to the farm, and to the Irish national grid.

Patrick Berridge added: “Börger’s pumps and macerator have proved both capable and reliable in what is a very demanding process. The Maintenance-in-Place feature also makes them very easy to service”.

Börger’s installation for Carrigbyrne follows the success of its macerator and rotary lobe pumps at a five-tonne capacity pasteurisation plant on the Aran Island of Inis Mór, Ireland. Börger’s pumps transfer output from the liquid phase pasteurisation system to a mixing wagon where the pasteurised sludge is blended with compost and bulk materials prior to being composted and screene.
