The report contains the preliminary studies, process development, process calculations, and process design for a system to successfully handle the paunch manure in a beef slaughtering operation. These studies resulted in a system in which the paunch manure is collected from the slaughtering operation and is fed to a screening device which separates the coarse solids. The screenings are dewatered to a solids content of 37 percent. This dewatered material is then sent to a fluid bed incinerator via a screw conveyor. The liquid stream from the screening is fed to a settler and is combined with the liquid stream from the dewaterer prior to sand filtering. The filter cake is fed to the incinerator using a screw conveyor. The filtrate is recycled back to the settler.
