Visy turned to Aerofloat again for its wastewater solution.

After successfully installing a sophisticated wastewater treatment plant for its challenging inky wastewater in New Zealand, Visy asked Aerofloat to manage its new Australian facility.

The Need

A wastewater treatment facility to process the inky wastewater from a corrugated box processing and printing plant. The wastewater needed to be treated to a level suitable for sewer discharge.

The Solution

Aerofloat installed its more conventional open-top stainless steel AeroCIRC DAF.

The Benefit

Aerofloat provided a compliant solution for Visy. Aerofloat added remote monitoring of the facility so its engineers can assist in the optimisation and management of the facility if required.


Visy produces cardboard boxes for the packaging industry. It turned to Aerofloat to manage the wastewater from its new production plant in Melbourne, Australia.

Aerofloat’s experience in treating the inky process wastewater for Visy, New Zealand and for other packaging companies meant that it was the first choice for Visy’s Melbourne wastewater treatment facility. Following the success of the Visy New Zealand plant, Aerofloat was asked to provide a proposal for a dissolved air flotation (DAF) and associated process equipment to treat the process wastewater prior to sewer discharge.

The Aerofloat Solution

The design utilises Aerofloat’s conventional open top, AeroCIRC DAF 200 SS made from 304 SS material with a 60-degree hopper bottom tank, mechanical scraper for the float, a beach, sludge hopper and chute.

The project not only included the AeroCIRC DAF but also all associated process equipment, tanks, sludge dewatering and controls.


Aerofloat successfully installed a wastewater treatment plant to treat the process wastewater of approximately 5000-7000mg/L suspended solids down to an effluent discharge of less than 100mg/L.

Visy were again happy clients with an effective solution that was delivered on time, and on budget.
