Did you try sane-airscan instead of sane-escl?

Do you really need each of 3000 machines to have access to each of 530
I guess, on each of the 530 stores you have one scanner and ~6 machines,
connected through the local network.
If you use eSCL protocol with the working backend, and client machine
and scanner are on the same LAN, typically no configuration is required;
scanner is automatically discovered by client computers via LAN.
So in your situation, it would be better to rely on automatic discovery
and configure 0 machines instead of 530 or 3000.
I'm also concerned about technical possibility for a single computer to
serve 530 scanners to 3000 clients. It can be quite noticeable load for
a single computer.
