U-Sonics (located in Malaysia) are a world leader in the manufacture of loudspeaker componentry. Aerofloat was contracted to investigate U-Sonics existing wastewater treatment facility which was underperforming and resulting in effluent not meeting discharge standards. Due to the extensive knowledge of the Aerofloat engineers in wastewater treatment, a thorough and effective design was proposed to incorporate some existing infrastructure combined with the Aerofloat technology.
In November 2015, Aerofloat completed the installation and commissioning of three Aerofloat 200 DAFs to create an overall treatment capacity of 600L/min for U-Sonics. A fast tracked project plan was developed and executed. Components were manufactured, tested and sent from both China and Australia. Simultaneously, Aerofloat engineers were working with U-Sonics (providing detailed instruction and drawings) to complete any required preparatory work. With the help of local staff, Aerofloat then spent 3 weeks on site completing the full installation and commissioning of the system. At the conclusion of this period, the treatment plant was fully functioning and producing superior effluent quality.
