On the outside, it stands out:
- Animal unloading area. The means of transport arrive in the area designated for unloading which is on a lower level than the floor of the slaughterhouse. This caution is important in order to reduce the percentage of slope of the vehicle doors and facilitate unloading operations. After unloading, the animals will be conveyed via aisles or directly to the immobilization facilities or stalls, in relation to the planned slaughtering activities.
- Area intended for stables These are structures equipped and built to house, for a limited time, animals awaiting slaughter. The separation between the various compartments was made with metal structures resistant to the stresses of the hospitalized animals and such as not to create cases of promiscuity. The boxes are numbered and are equipped with feeders and drinking troughs useful for all the species subject to activity. Of these boxes, one is intended for infected animals.
- Area intended for vehicle washing A small area is intended for the washing and disinfection of the means of transport of livestock, is equipped with the instrumentation useful for the purpose and with the collection of waste water that will flow into the purifier of the same company.
The slaughterhouse can be divided into 4 macro areas / zones:
- Slaughter line for cattle, horses, buffaloes;
- Pig, sheep and goat slaughter line;
- Meat storage area.
- BOVINE, EQUINE, BUFFALIN SLAUGHTER LINE
The starting point is the restraint cage, installed between the external and internal areas. After identification and the pre-slaughter visit, the animal will be stunned and, after being lifted, it will be jugulated; the blood will collect in a special basin below, buried flush with the floor. After the death of the animal, the head will be removed, on which any processing will be carried out, according to the indications of current legislation. This is followed, in succession, by the skinning, evisceration, cutting into half carcasses, grooming and weight of the carcass. Lastly, the thrust of the half carcasses in the storage refrigeration unit follows. The evisceration operation is divided into two phases: the first concerns the removal of the abdominal viscera (intestinal packet), the second the removal of the abdominal and thoracic parenchymatous organs. The intestines will be pushed, by means of a special platform, into the trippery room behind it while the corata will be hung on a mobile trolley awaiting the post-mortem inspection. As for the hides, after detachment from the carcass, they will be placed in special containers and removed from the slaughterhouse. After evisceration and before the carcass enters the cell, the Official Veterinarian carries out the post-mortem inspection, deciding the fate of the meat; only after a favorable outcome will the health stamp be affixed. Otherwise, the meat will be destined for disposal as indicated by the mandatory legislation. In relation to the mandatory legislation and to the species, the carcasses may undergo a sanitary stop, pending analytical results.
- PIG, SHEEP AND GOAT SLAUGHTER LINE
- SHEEP and GOATS
After identification and a pre-slaughter visit, the animal will be stunned and immediately afterwards iugulate, collecting the blood in the appropriate collection tank. After the death of the animal, it will be raised on special trolleys to begin the first skinning operations. The activity will be completed with the carcass hanging from the rail, providing, in succession, the completion of the skinning and evisceration, first of the intestinal pack, from the rectum to the cardia including the forestomach, and then of the abdominal and thoracic viscera including trachea, esophagus. . After evisceration and before the carcass enters the cell, the Official Veterinarian carries out the post-mortem inspection, deciding the fate of the meat; only after a favorable outcome will the health stamp be affixed. Otherwise, the meat will be destined for disposal as indicated by the mandatory legislation.
The starting point is the restraint cage, installed at the entrance. After identification and pre-slaughter visit, the animal will be stunned and immediately jugulated with the collection of blood in a special tank below. After death, the carcass will be pushed forward and lowered into the scalding tank; here it remains for a few minutes, then by means of the hydraulic side it is turned over in the depilatory machine. Manual finishing will take place at the exit. We will pass, in succession, to evisceration, first of the intestinal pack, from the rectum to the cardia, and then of the abdominal and thoracic viscera including the trachea, esophagus and tongue, then to the half-dressing, grooming and weighing. Finally, the carcasses will be sent to the storage cell. After evisceration and before the carcass enters the cell, the Official Veterinarian carries out the post-mortem inspection, deciding the fate of the meat; only after a favorable outcome will the health stamp be affixed. Otherwise, the meat will be destined for disposal as indicated by the mandatory legislation. In relation to the mandatory legislation, the carcasses may undergo a sanitary stop, pending analytical results.
- SHEEP and GOATS
In the local tripe, communicating with the slaughter room through openings, the processing of tripe, usually bovine, will take place. The identified intestinal pack arrives by slide or trolley; in relation to the origin and the mandatory legislation, the parts will be separated and destined for disposal or washed and cleaned in a special machine. The contents of the forestomach will be collected separately from the rest of the material to be disposed of. During the emptying of the forestomaches, the recovery of the electronic identification devices will also take place.
- MEAT STORAGE AREA
There are several storage units, equipped with a lockable entrance door and identified with progressive numbers. The facilities were conceived in in order to accommodate all the regularly slaughtered meats. Tripe and offal will be stored on trolleys manually pushed into the cold room.
During the slaughtering operations, all three categories of by-products will be created (CAT. 01, CAT. 02 and CAT. 03). During processing, the operators will separate the three types, allocating them to the various suitably identified containers. For disposal, the company relies on an external company. The removal takes place at the end of the slaughtering activity.
- MEAT OUTPUT
The company has equipped itself with a special area for loading meat. Generally, the operation takes place the day after slaughter and involves cutting the carcass into quarters for cattle, buffaloes and horses, in order to facilitate transport operations. For loading operations on the vehicles, the company has prepared a mechanical arm that allows the coupling of the quarter / half-car from the rail and the release on the vehicle. For the delivery of the slaughtered meat, the company owns means of transport. This service, however, can also be carried out by the owner of the slaughtered animal himself or by specific companies that carry out the meat transport activity.
The waste water from all the activities, better marginalized in the previous chapter, is conveyed to the purification plant that the plant is equipped with. The operation of the existing purification plant is characterized by the following phases:
a) BIOLOGICAL PHASE – SEDIMENTATION This phase is the heart of the plant and can technically be defined as an activated sludge treatment with low sludge load, total mixing, with discontinuous operation. The basin is characterized by its discontinuous functioning, this works, in fact, for about twenty hours a day, accumulating and treating the sewage introduced; it then stops to allow the sedimentation of the activated sludge and to discharge the purified liquid from above. In the aeration basin the organic substance is attacked and demolished by the bacterial flora present, whose life is guaranteed by a continuous supply of atmospheric oxygen. Oxygen is introduced by means of a blower and relative porous septa, which also create the necessary mixing to avoid sedimentation phenomena and intimately mix the incoming fresh sewage with the activated sludge present in the tank. This type of plant, whose automated operation, has the considerable advantage of allowing the elimination of the secondary sedimentation tank. Furthermore, during the shutdown period, the plant is in absolute calm, thus limiting the danger of the activated sludge floating. This solution is particularly interesting due to the great elasticity towards the polluting load. This elasticity is essential in the specific case where such variations are sensitive and practically unavoidable. The sizing was done in such a way as to contain the production of excess sludge that can be removed from the plant automatically, during the rest period, by means of a submerged electric pump sent to the relative sludge accumulation and thickening basin. This type of plant, whose automated operation, has the considerable advantage of allowing the elimination of the secondary sedimentation tank.
b) SLUDGE TREATMENT The excess biological sludge that forms in the natural biological purification process is sent to the relative sludge accumulation and thickening basin.
- Dry matter inlet 1%
- Accumulation time about 90-120 days
- Dry matter output 4 – 5%
- Weekly production of excess sludge after thickening mc. 3.50
- Up to now, the purification plant described above has allowed the discharge of purified waste water into the municipal sewer network collector, in compliance with the limits set for discharge into the sewer system.
PURIFICATION PLANT IN PROJECT
The current owner, for business needs, has decided to build a new waste water purification plant, downstream of the existing purification plant. The latter will continue to be used as a wastewater pre-treatment plant (…) The series operation of the two purification plants and specifically, the existing plant as a pre-treatment of the wastewater and the new plant as a final purification, will allow the discharge of purified wastewater, by means of a special new drainage pipe, in the nearest receiving body, namely the Mela stream (…) The new wastewater treatment plant will be designed considering a maximum daily flow rate of 15m3 / day and its operation will be from the following stages:
a) OXIDATION In this compartment the sewage mixes with a mass of flaky solids in a very fluid state of mud (activated mud) inside which a huge number of microorganisms live, especially bacteria, which feed and reproduce at the expense of organic pollutants contained in the sewage; simultaneously in the oxygen-rich environment of the aeration tanks, complex physical, chemical and above all biological phenomena are established. First of all there is a chemical oxidation of reducing compounds such as hydrogen sulphide, then with physical and biological phenomena microorganisms present in very high concentrations (colonies constituting “mud flakes” that is very small gelatinous masses) that agglomerate the sedimentable solids and block the colloidal solids for effect of adsorption phenomena, mobilizing forces of surface attraction that induce the colloidal substances to adhere and remain incorporated in the flaky mass; there are also particular mechanisms of direct coagulation of colloidal substances. Finally, during the time in which the sewage stays in the aeration tanks, the microorganisms use part of the solid organic substances for their development, transforming them into sedimentable living substance and at the same time proceed to the processing of the sedimentable and colloidal solids incorporated in the flocky mass after solubilization. with particular enzymes. The result is a net increase of microorganisms and the flakes in which they are agglomerated, passing the sewage in the subsequent sedimentation phase, settling on the bottom while the purified sewage overflows above; that is, summing up the fundamental result of the biological treatment is to make organic substances that otherwise could not be removed from the liquid phase settle with a sedimentation process. To carry out this purification phase, a blower must be installed which is automatically controlled by a special electrical panel and by a series of air diffusers, in the lower part of the septum in question, with micro bubbles. The air blown from the bottom by means of oxygenation blocks with fine bubbles, has the dual function of achieving effective mixing of providing the oxygen necessary for biological sewage purification processes. The operating speed of the blower can be adapted (by means of an appropriate timer system) to the foreseeable flow of sewage and therefore to the real oxygen requirement in the system. The bubble system, the arrangement of the oxygenating blocks and the recirculation system of the sludge collected in the sedimentation compartment, have been designed to ensure the best use of the oxygen supplied and a perfect mixing of the aerated mass in order to avoid preferential paths and a homogeneous concentration of the mud in the tank.
b) SEDIMENTATION The wastewater mixture is conveyed by the starvation of coagulation and flocculation and to the sedimentation phase. In this phase, the final sedimentation of the wastewater will take place: in fact, due to the low ascent rate, the mud settles on the bottom, while the purified wastewater overflows above and conveyed to the last stage in which a final filtration phase will take place.
c) POST DISINFECTION The sedimented wastewater undergoes a post-disinfection process, through the use of special disinfectant products such as hypochlorite or peracetic acid, the dosage of which takes place through the use of a special dosing pump.
