The presence of whey as a common by-product of the milk and cheese manufacturing processes presents wastewater management challenges to the dairy industry.

Most food manufacturers aim to filter suspended solids (SS) and fats, oils and grease (FOG) from their wastewater. In the dairy industry, biological treatment methods may be required to remove the soluble lactose and proteins in the wastewater, which contribute to the BOD and COD levels.

Aerofloat has extensive experience in the dairy industry and can custom design a treatment plant to effectively meet regulatory requirements.

Aerofloat designs the most economic and practical solution for you following analysis of your manufacturing processes, wastewater patterns, and the local authority discharge requirements. This may mean recommending only partial flow treatment, whey capture and discharge, physical separation to remove the associated suspended matter contributing to the BOD, or a full biological treatment solution.

Aerofloat has a range of products to effectively treat dairy wastewater.
