Chris Christopher - Sunfresh SaladsMy name is Chris Christopher and I am the owner of Sunfresh Salads in South Australia.
I installed an Aerofloat 100 unit to treat the production wastewater.
I am impressed with the commitment of the Aerofloat team, and the effectiveness of their product.
And ultimately… I am now comfortable that I am continuously meeting the SA Water discharge standard.
I would be happy recommending Aerofloat to similar companies with waste water problems
Sam Montalto of Monte Fresco CheeseSam has been working in the cheese-making industry all his life. Two years ago he had a vision of what he wanted his new Sydney factory to look like and called upon Aerofloat’s Michael Anderson to help him to realise his dream. “Michael was able to pull all the pieces together and help me to create exactly what I had envisioned – and all within my budget.”
“I didn’t want to go with the conventional DAFs. I’ve used them all my life and they generate alot of smell. Aerofloat’s DAF has the waste going into an enclosed chamber so it isn’t exposed.”
“In my lifetime career working in the dairy industry this is the only DAF that I’ve found that eliminates the smell factor. What’s more, the water board is happy with the end result – and that’s important!”
Monte Fresco Cheese was awarded a Gold Award at the 2016 Sydney Royal Cheese and Dairy Show for its beautiful ricotta.
Allen Box - Norco FoodsENV Solutions conducted an independent comparative analysis of different solutions, and the Aerofloat DAF system was the one it recommended. Box says Norco employees travelled to New Zealand to see a similar project installation for Westland’s Milk, and agreed to move forward with the Aerofloat solution.
Now our people are getting involved to find out all the ins and outs of how it works,” Box says. Also, because the Aerofloat tanks are fully enclosed, Box says this should eliminate the odours associated with older units that operate by more traditional DAF units on other sites, which use scrapers to remove scum, demanding more maintenance and staff supervision.
With no moving parts, he anticipates that Aerofloat’s solution will prove far easier to operate than these. “With these new units, we’re hoping we can do a daily check to make sure it’s working alright, and then let it run itself,” he says. “If this works out as we hope, then Aerofloat may well become the solution for our other plants when existing DAFs reach their end of life.”
Karen Neil - Ruby and Roy’sKnown for their multi-award winning (and utterly divine) yoghurt brand, Ruby and Roy’s, Karen and Simon worked with Aerofloat’s Ray Anderson to install a new DAF system late last year.
After exploring the products on offer, Karen and Simon felt that Aerofloat would give them exactly what they needed, with the confidence of a job well done and the added bonus of the right price tag.
Karen muses on the process of finding the right supplier for their business, “Ray made us feel completely assured that we were going in the right direction. We met other suppliers promising improbable results for a lot of money. Ray was never going to leave us with something that was half-done.”
“Ray is passionate about what he does, and it shows.”
Matt Savage - Apex Environmental New ZealandGeorge Weston Foods Auckland bakery needed to reduce the levels of fat, oil and grease in their discharge in order to comply with trade waste laws. With Aerofloat’s support, the treatment facility was able to reduce the levels of suspended solids by 97%, and oil and grease levels by 99%, thereby easily achieving compliance with council regulations.
In both examples, the compact nature of the Aerofloat system allowed for the installation of additional treatment products on sites that have space constraints.
The Aerofloat DAF and MBBR systems dramatically reduce the COD in the effluent from dairy processing plants with a simple and economical option - making them the go-to solutions for dairies in Australia and New Zealand.
