CleanWater developed a sewage treatment system
for Kingville Fisherman’s Co., a Canadian fishery operation.
The system was designed to treat all wastewater resulting from the
cleaning and de-scaling of fish. The company was processing upwards
of 25,000 lbs. of fish per day. Laboratory tests show that the treated
output water is now free of bacteria, ammonia and organics; total
dissolved solids are below .1 ppm. The treated wastewater is so
clean that the water is returned to the service lines as potable
water and is reused.
A secondary system was also designed to purify
ice used in the fishing boats. Under special conditions, the ozone
is captured in the ice crystals, which are used for packing the
freshly-caught fish. The ozonated ice destroys the bacteria on the
fish and extends their keeping time. Result: the boats are able
to stay out for longer periods of time without degrading the quality
of the product.
