About Food manufacturing plant – Monogram Food Solutions
Monogram Food Solutions LLC, headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, USA, is a producer and distributor of packaged meat products, snacks, and appetizers. The rapidly-growing company’s products include beef jerky, sausage, hot dogs, pre-cooked bacon, and pet treats, among other processed food items.
Monogram’s FDA-approved pet food manufacturing plant in Schulenburg, Texas, USA, makes meat-based pet treats that contain no artificial ingredients or filler. The pet treats are such high-quality that they are fit for human consumption. Monogram wanted a wastewater treatment system of the same superior caliber.
At the time, the plant was skimming oil before discharging its wastewater to a municipal treatment system—but that came at a price. Moreover, new production lines at the plant resulted in a significant increase in wastewater flow and load, which would exceed treatment capacity at the municipal plant.
ADI Systems was selected to design, construct, and commission an on-site wastewater treatment solution for Monogram’s pet treat plant. The technology of choice was a membrane bioreactor (ADI-MBR), an aerobic technology that uses a submerged physical membrane barrier to provide the liquid/biosolids separation. Monogram’s wastewater contains high concentrations of fat, oil, and grease (FOG) resulting from animal fat and cooking oils. Because of this, care had to be taken in the design of the membrane-based biological wastewater treatment system to ensure there would be no long-term issues with foaming, biological performance, or membrane fouling.
The contract completion date was scheduled for October, but ADI Systems’ team successfully designed and constructed the treatment plant in less than four months.
