Water Reuse System


Lyco’s Water Reuse System can save money, cut cleaning and maintenance time, and reduce consumption of water resources — up to 15 million gallons per year. This revolutionary system removes suspended solids and reuses water from any slaughter process — poultry or red meat — and returns this water back to the main process. The system’s small footprint makes it ideal for many water reuse applications. A 200 GPM saving can return more than $150,000 a year.

Suggested Applications

How it Works

Effluent is fed into the inner drum screen and this revolutionary system removes suspended solids, then counter flows the water for reuse, compared to product flow. Amount of water reuse available will depend upon the type of product passing through the system.
