Limed Fleshing

The Centrifuge for Processing of Limed Fleshing in Tanneries

Limed fleshings is a byproduct from tanneries. Valuable animal fat can be recovered during the processing of limed fleshings. Our customers profit twice over from this fat recovery: Firstly, the disposal costs are drastically reduced and, secondly, a valuable raw material is obtained - the fat.

Increasing fuel costs are making fat recovery in tanneries increasingly attractive. The recovered fat can also be used for firing the boiler used for generating the steam.
