Chicken Hatchery, Fresno, CA
This hatchery provides chicks to large chicken processors. The main problems at the hatchery are odor in the ponds and sludge wells, and buildup of sludge made up of eggs, shells, and other long string proteins. They were on an enzymatic program that was working, but very expensive. The savings generated by the use of Microbe-Lift and the additional benefits were sufficient to warrant this trial.
So far the results have been very good and they are considering expanding the treatment areas to the collection lines throughout the facility to minimize the maintenance needed to assure a smooth flowing system.
