The award-winning County Wexford based Carrigbyrne Farmhouse Cheese Company has, in conjunction with its sister company Ballyshannon Recycling introduced a pump and a macerator from Börger to help process slurry and food waste for its AD plant.

Owner Patrick Berridge says: “Börger was able to guarantee its pump and macerator would meet the specific EU requirement for a maximum particle size of 12mm for treatment of waste at 70°C for 1 hour.”

Carrigbyrne’s anaerobic digester at its 198-acre dairy farm produces 1100cubic metres of biogas per day, supplying power for the cheese making process, and to the Irish national grid.

Berridge adds: “Börger’s pumps and macerator have proved capable and reliable in what is a demanding process. The Maintenance-in-Place feature also makes them easy to service”.

Börger’s installation for Carrigbyrne follows the success of its macerator and rotary lobe pumps at a five-tonne capacity pasteurisation plant on the Aran Island of Inis Mór, Ireland.
