Relevant products

When designing a water treatment plant, Aerofloat engineers utilise a range of different proprietary and off-the-shelf products to deliver the best water treatment solution.


Aerofloat’s own patented DAF technology in the AeroDAF was designed to provide a compact, low maintenance and affordable DAF solution and has been successfully applied to numerous plants around the world.


AeroCIRC DAF is a traditional stainless steel, top scraper, open DAF with unique design features that enhance the maintenance and cleaning of the system.


Moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) involves a biological process commonly used to remove soluble contaminants, such as BOD and COD (typically dissolved sugars and proteins).


AeroSBR technology is a suspended growth biological treatment process whereby the microorganisms are settled, and effluent decanted, within the same reactor.


The AeroASR (Activated Sludge Reactor) is an aerobic, suspended growth biological treatment process and the mixed liquor containing the microorganisms which flows from the ASR are settled in a separate clarifier.


Filtration is a common step in any water treatment process, helping to achieve high quality effluent. Aerofloat has access to a number of filtration products including reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, microfiltration and sand filtration units.


Disinfection is typically the final crucial step in the water treatment cycle, and there are several ways this can be achieved. Aerofloat’s engineers advise the best method to meet each client’s needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Water treatment is crucial primarily for ensuring the safety and healthiness of water for human consumption. In Australia, where diverse environmental conditions prevail, untreated water may contain harmful contaminants like bacteria, viruses, and chemicals, posing significant health risks. Moreover, water treatment is integral to environmental protection. It minimises pollution by treating wastewater from industries and households, which is especially vital in maintaining Australia’s unique ecosystems.

Additionally, water treatment is essential for industrial and agricultural applications. Industries require water of specific quality standards for product safety and consistency, while agriculture relies on treated water to prevent disease spread in crops and livestock. The process, thus, is not just about making water safe for consumption but also about sustaining the country’s economic and environmental health.

Yes, water treatment in Australia is governed by stringent regulations to ensure safety and quality. The Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (ADWG), established by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and the Natural Resource Management Ministerial Council, set the framework for these standards. These cover microbial, chemical, and radiological water quality aspects. Additionally, individual states and territories may implement their own supplementary regulations, ensuring consistent water quality standards across various uses and regions

Water treatment can indeed be customised to suit specific water sources or requirements. The variability in water quality, whether from surface water, groundwater, or reclaimed sources, necessitates tailored treatment solutions. Aerofloat’s engineering expertise enables them to analyse these variances and design systems that cater to the unique aspects of each water source, employing suitable filtration and disinfection techniques.

This customisation also extends to fulfilling the distinct needs of various industries or communities. For instance, the water treatment required for the pharmaceutical industry can significantly differ from that for agricultural use. Aerofloat’s capability to provide such specialised treatment ensures that clients receive water that not only meets their specific needs but also aligns with Australia’s comprehensive water quality standards and regulations.
