Cupitt’s Estate required a wastewater treatment plant to successfully treat domestic sewage and wastewater from its brewery, cheese production and winery processes.
Aerofloat’s wastewater treatment design included Sequence Batch Reactors (AeroSBRs) that applied Aerofloat’s patented aeration system and unique ALS decanter. The system was fully automated and had remote monitoring capabilities to assist with system optimisation and diagnostics.
The mixed waste from Cupitt’s Estate was treated to a quality suitable for discharge to the surrounding terrain, meeting the strict regulations by local authorities.
A clever process wastewater and sewage treatment solution from Aerofloat allowed Cupitt’s Estate to irrigate to the surrounding land.
The estate had outgrown its existing treatment systems and was looking for a more effective wastewater treatment solution.
“Looking after our environment is incredibly important to us at Cupitt’s Estate, so having a system that treats wastewater from all facets of our operations and enables us to have high quality effluent suitable for irrigation to the surrounding land, is a great win for us.”
Tom Cupitt, General Manager of Cupitt’s Estate
The estate had outgrown its existing treatment systems and was looking for a more effective wastewater treatment solution. Given the variety of processes on site, the wastewater from Cupitt’s Estate had three distinct streams.
Firstly, production wastewater from its food and beverage processes, including its cheese-making facility, winery and brewery, required a suitable solution to remove the suspended solids (SS), fats, oils and grease (FOG),biochemical oxygen demand (BOD),chemical oxygen demand (COD) and nutrients from the wastewater. The sewage wastewater coming from the kitchen and toilet facilities at its restaurant and conference centre also required treatment. The final stream was sewage wastewater from the onsite cottage accommodation.
The team at Cupitt’s Estate was recommended to speak with Aerofloat given the company’s experience in providing innovative solutions for wastewater and sewage treatment. Aerofloat’s proprietary technology for sewage treatment offered a mechanically simple solution that provides a high effluent quality and maintenance-friendly operations.
