Struggling with FOG control? Part of profitable and sustainable business practices for meat processors and sausage or meat-based pizza topping manufacturers is recycling and/or effective disposal of fat, oil and grease. Yet the less FOG released into the municipal wastewater system, the better it is for the environment and for reduction of municipal chargebacks. EPA states in one report that grease from restaurants, homes and industrial sources is the most common cause (47%) of reported blockages in combined sewer and sanitary sewer overflows.
Lyco offers efficient and sanitary designs to separate oil from solids as they discharge from batch or continuous cookers for meat toppings, pizza toppings and much more. Lyco’s Zero Maintenance Screen relies on a wedge-wire design to separate solids and fines down to .020 inches in size. A greater amount of solids removal gives cooking oils a longer shelf life. This helps reduce overall costs and improves the production process and return on investment.
Sanitary construction makes clean up a quick and easy process. In addition, the Zero Maintenance Screen lives up to its name by eliminating trunnion wheels, springs and bearings to reduce maintenance time and costs.
Increase your oil recovery, improve utilization and trim costs and waste with the Zero Maintenance Screen from Lyco Manufacturing.
