GLRPPR Sector Resource: Use of Hydrocyclones to Treat Seafood-Processing Wastewaters
Use of Hydrocyclones to Treat Seafood-Processing Wastewaters
The recovery of suspended solids is important for Alaska because of the state's significant contribution to the national seafood industry. In 1972, 86% of all salmon harvested in the U. S. were caught in Alaska and processed in 43 of its plants. All of the lung crab and much of the scallop harvest originates in Alaska- In terms of dollar value, Alaska is the number one seafood-producing state in the nation. Therefore, the authors initiated a project in 1977 relating to suspended solids removal from seafood processing wastewater streams. One particular device for removing SS, the hydrocyclone, has been emphasized in this study.
