At a slaughterhouse, pigs and cattle are killed for food production. The slaughterhouse uses a Boerger Rotary Lobe Pump to transfer animal blood.
Once the animals have been slaughtered, the blood drains off in the bleeding zone. A large stainless steel basin is there to collect all the blood flowing from the incision. The Boerger Rotary Lobe Pump conveys the blood from a recess in the basin to a storage tank.
The slaughterhouse was previously using a membrane pump to do this. However, the ear tags from the animals kept getting stuck between the membranes and causing damage. The operators at the slaughterhouse sometimes had to open up the membrane several times a day, which cost time and money. The customer is now highly satisfied with the Boerger Rotary Lobe Pump. Alongside the pump's resistance to solids and the operation stability, the customer was particularly impressed with the low maintenance.
