FRC Exhibiting at NWFPA 2016 – Booth 124

FRC Systems International will be exhibiting at the NWFPA Expo January 11th-13th with a display of equipment available for testing, rentals, as a stand-alone equipment upgrade, or delivered as a plug-and-play system. FRC will have engineers present from Cumming, GA and Whitby, ON who can talk with you about meeting each waste water project’s specific needs around the world.

FRC is represented in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska by SELG & Associates and together they have installations in Poultry Processing, Seafood Processing, Beef Slaughtering, Potato Processing, Frozen Prepared Foods, and Dairy. From the best Dissolved Air Flotation in the industry to a complete system that will include Equalization, Chemical Treatment, Dissolved Air Flotation, and Belt Filter Press, together, we can supply the right system for your application.

FRC Systems International designs and builds wastewater treatment solutions for organizations across all industry sectors. With over 500 installations in more than 20 countries, FRC has established a reputation as a trusted wastewater solutions provider. Contact Adriaan van der Beek at adriaan@frcsystems.com.

FRC Exhibiting at IPPE 2016

FRC Systems International will exhibit again at the International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE 2016) held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

IPPE is the world’s largest annual poultry, feed, meat and seafood technology exposition. The 2015 show set a record attendance of more than 30,000 attendees who interacted with the 1,288 exhibitors covering 490,000 net square feet of space.

“During the IPPE you are reacquainted to people from the US, Canada as well as the rest of the world in the poultry, meat and seafood industry”, FRC President Adriaan van der Beek notes “This is the industry FRC has been providing trusted waste water solution to during the last 36 years.”

Come visit us at the FRC booth to discuss waste water treatment solutions as well as sludge handling.

FRC Exhibiting at IPPE 2015

Once again FRC will exhibit at the International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE 2015) held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

IPPE is the world’s largest annual poultry, feed, and meat technology exposition. It draws exhibitors and attendees to Atlanta from all over the world, with 2014 registrations exceeding 20,000 attendees from 124 countries.

FRC President, Adriaan van der Beek notes, “IPPE is the world in one city.” He further explains, “All the most influential companies and organizations from around the globe come to participate at IPPE. FRC has served manufacturers in the poultry and meat industries for 35 years and we’ll be there to show our continuing support.”

At the event FRC plans to demonstrate how their Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) technology helps industrial producers not only meet their wastewater discharge permit requirements but also capitalize on opportunities to recover waste product for use in rendering and other profitable ventures.

Come find FRC in Exhibit Hall B at Booth B8015.

See you at the show!

Algae Removal Using Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF)

It happens every year around the US – warm weather during summertime induces algae growth in surface bodies of water. Other times algae comes because of  improper management of discharged wastewater. We’re seeing this very problem at Lake Erie right now.

Algae grow when they have the right conditions, such as adequate nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus), light levels, pH, and temperature. As the concentration of phosphorus found in a water body increases, algae growth will also increase. Elevated concentrations of algae will then produce dead organic matter and cause anoxic conditions. When lakes are deprived of oxygen, conditions will turn septic, fish and plant life will die and decompose, and noxious odors will follow.

So, what can be done to stop algae outbreaks?

Managing algae blooms can prove to be a daunting challenge without the right technologies for the job. First of all, you’ve got to cut the problem off at the head. Reduce phosphorus concentration in agricultural runoff – it’s the largest contributor to the problem. Then, on the other end where the symptoms are showing do something to remove the growing colonies. There are a few different chemical additives that can be dispersed into a body of water to stop algae from growing, but these don’t actually help remove the floating green mat of solids.

A better approach is to physically remove the algae and reduce the concentration of phosphorus in the water. A simple process of clarification via Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) and phosphorus precipitation can stop an algae bloom in its tracks.

We’ve used the DAF process many times to help with algae removal in surface bodies of water. Download our free whitepaper below and see how it’s done.
