Seepex pumps are forming part of Insource Energy’s new anaerobic digestion plant in Wales, which converts food waste from the Premier Foods RF Brookes ready-meal facility at Rogerstone into energy to power the factory.

Progressive cavity pumps from Seepex are being used to perform the majority of pumping duties to and within the plant, transferring a range of products at variable flow rates. 

A Seepex macerating pump from the BTM range with integral knives has recently been fitted to handle food waste delivered to the AD intake in tote bins. 

Seepex macerators have also been installed to ensure that the correct particle size is achieved to comply with ABP regulations for mixed food waste.

Within the plant there are a further 12 Seepex pumps on transfer duties, feeding the pasteuriser, pumping from the pasteuriser at temperatures up to 70°C and transferring material between tanks. 

Key benefits of product application

  • Take waste directly from the factory and pump it 170m through a dedicated pipeline to the reception tank on the AD plant
  • Transfer DAF sludge from the effluent treatment on site to a second tank
  • Food waste is depacked using a shredder and screw compactor before being pumped to a third tank
  • Ensure the plant has a continuous supply of feedstock
  • Take the digestate to the screw press for dewatering
  • Produce high-quality soil improver a by-product, which is used as fertiliser by a local farmer
