Our team of engineers successfully installed a solution to meet effluent problems of the customer, and significantly reduce their trade effluent bill.
The acidic waste from a fruit processing plant was generating low pH in their effluent and causing corrosion in the local sewer network. In addition, fruit waste was generating extremely high suspended solids which contributed towards a high trade effluent bill.
We set about installing of a bacterial Effluent Treatment Plant comprising of a wedge wire screen to remove suspended solid, a pH balancing system to neutralise and maintain pH at point of discharge and flow and wastewater sampling equipment to accurately monitor effluent discharge.
The solution was a state-of-the-art treatment plant that successfully reduced suspended solids by over 95% from 12,000mg/l to below 500mg/l and balanced the pH consistently to 7.6.
