Application- Poultry Processing (PAA sanitizing system)
A poultry processing plant in North Carolina that processes 400,000 chickens per day, installed a polypropylene piping system for their PAA sanitizing system; however, the piping system was not
made for this application. This caused problems including the high material cost and labor of installation. Additionally, the system was limited in fittings and not UV resistant.
Some poultry processing plants use PVC/CPVC cemented piping systems for PAA; however, leaking joints and long cure times can result in loss of production. Because of these issues, they decided to switch to Chem Proline®.
