New Romanian biogas plant to benefit from Landia pasteurizers
Denmark-headed pump- and mixer technology suppliers Landia A/S has announced that it has been chosen to supply two of its 25m3 pasteurizers to a new state-of-the-art biogas plant for an undisclosed client in Romania.
The Landia BioChop units will play a crucial role in eliminating biohazards by heating biomass to a minimum of 72°C for one-hour batch processes – allowing the final digestate to be utilized safely as a high-quality fertilizer.
Equipped with a Landia chopper pump and a Landia side-entry mixer, the plug-in-and-play Biochop can treat both slaughterhouse and food waste for flows in excess of 300 tonnes per day.
Delivered complete with a user-friendly control system for regulation, monitoring, and registration of the hygienisation process, the Landia BioChop also benefits from having no moving parts inside the pasteurizers, so there is no need to enter the tank to carry out maintenance.
In addition to the externally-mounted chopper pump that reduces particle size and side-entry propeller mixer, the Landia pasteurizer is also supplied with an integral heating jacket as part of its solid and compact design for high treatment capacity.
In the lower part of the BioChop, the Landia chopper pump ensures the comprehensive circulation of the biomass, preventing dead zones in the tank. At the same time, it constantly reduces particle size for optimization of the heating process and the supply of suitably homogenised feedstock for the digesters.
The chopper pump can also be used for emptying the tank – typically achieved in just a few minutes. Meanwhile, the angled, side-entry Landia mixer further enhances movement in the tank, with every unit, including the propeller, customised for each specific project.
