Franklin Miller grinders, screens and packaged solutions have proven their dependability in years of operation worldwide.

Grinders Series

Fruit & Vegetable Processing

TM Shredder

The large volume of wastewater from processing fruit and vegetables requires treatment to remove the total suspended solids (TSS) and other pollutants from the water. The TASKMASTER® Industrial Food Waste Shredders and TASKMASTER Grinders reduce the solids and pre-treat the fruit and vegetables. The SCREENMASTER® Rotary Drum Screen allows the liquid to flow through, while capturing solids through a variety of screen sizes. The SPIRALIFT® screens, washes, transports and dewaters the solids entrained in the wastewater flow.

Dairy & Meat Processing

Grinder renderings

The abundant wastewater from dairy applications is found to be high in solids, oils, phosphorus and nitrogen. Even cleaning products used to sanitize the plant can often be found in the wastewater. Similarly, meat processing and dairy processing wastewater is often heavily burdened with fats, oils, and grease (FOG) which must be separated and treated. Poultry processing plants have their own challenges. This wastewater has high levels of organic matter, fat and microorganism, which needs to be screened and/or separated.

Rendering & Slaughterhouse Processing

Rotary Drum Screen

During the rendering process, waste animal matter is separated from fats and wastewater creating useful animal byproducts and materials to be used for rendering edible and non-edible goods. Slaughterhouse wastewater often includes fatty tissue, hair, feathers, offal, blood, and even parts of the carcass or bones. TASKMASTER® Grinders and the SCREENMASTER® Rotary Drum Screen grind and separate solids, fat and grease, resulting in a clean flow of wastewater.

Seafood Processing

TM2370 Fish Grinder

Seafood wastewater, high in TSS and biological oxygen demand (BOD) must be processed and treated. Thawing, eviscerating, washing, pre-cooking, spray cooling, solution filling, can washing and sterilization lead to a lot of wastewater. TASKMASTER® Grinders and the SCREENMASTER® Rotary Drum Screen process and treat the wastewater to meet discharge.
