KK Fine Foods hits five year milestone for wastewater aeration system

A wastewater mixing and aeration system made by Landia, a manufacturer and supplier of pumping and mixing solutions, has completed five years of uninterrupted service in North Wales at KK Fine Foods, manufacturers of meat, fish and vegetarian meal solutions.

The Landia Chopper Pump that forms part of the aeration system at KK Fine Foods.

Externally-mounted, the 11kW AirJet comprises venturi nozzle(s) and the Landia Chopper Pump, invented by the company back in 1950. Operating 24/7, the “simple yet highly effective” mixing and aeration system keeps solids in suspension in a 328m3 glass-lined steel tank.

The glass-lined steel tank at KK Fine Foods, which works in tandem with Landia’s mixing and aeration system.

Speaking for KK Fine Foods, established in 1987 in the kitchen of its founder Leyla Edwards, Dan Edmunds, engineering manager, said:

“We’ve only just had to replace a few basic wear and tear parts on the system, which shows just how reliable it is. The AirJet is something of an unsung hero. It sits there and does its job very well indeed.”

He added: “When the Landia engineers are here to service the system, they do a fantastic job. Tamás Rieder and his team really care about what they are doing.”
