Primary Treatment processes

Hydroflux has a wealth of experience in the design and construction of primary or physical and chemical treatment plants

Although every application is different and to ensure that the treatment plant performs consistently a high level of knowledge of the wastewater and production processes are requited, a primary treatment plant will often utilise similar unit processes such as screening, DAF or clarification and sludge handling. There are some unique process operations that can be applied in some instances that offer very favorable returns so please contact our experts for a discussion on potential possibilities.

A primary treatment plant will often involve the following processes.

Biological Treatment Processes

Biological treatment plants are mostly designed to reduce the concentrations of BOD, COD and nutrients. Unlike sewage which is reasonable consistent, in industrial applications a biological treatment plant needs to be designed to suit every application.

Alliteratively, please review some of the case studies below for details on a few industrial wastewater treatment plants Hydroflux has completed.

Pactum (Wastewater treatment plant for long life dairy plant in Western Sydney)

Pactum Ingleburn is a business unit of Freedom Foods Group. The wastewater treatment plant was designed and constructed by Hydroflux Industrial and completed in 2017.

The Yeeda Processing Station is located between Broome and Derby in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The wastewater treatment plant was completed and commissioned in 2015.

Transpacific Mackay (Waste Oil Recovery plant in Northern Queensland)

Located at Cleanaway’s Liquid and Industrial Services Facility in Paget, eastern Queensland, the facility receives industrial wastewater from various sources including oil filter recycling and industrial abrasives. The wastewater treatment plant was completed and commissioned in 2016.

NCMC (Chrome removal at a Tannery in Northern NSW)

The Northern Co-operative Meat Company Ltd operates a tannery at Casino NSW as part of its integrated processing service. The wastewater treatment plant was designed to remove Chrome from the wastewater stream and was completed and commissioned in 2015.

Australian Country Choice (Fat removal from an Abattoir red stream in Brisbane)

The ACC Primary Processing facility at Cannon Hill has a daily capacity of 1280 head of beef cattle or approximately 80,000 tonnes of carcase beef per annum. The wastewater treatment plant was designed to remove fats from the red stream and reduce the load on the aerobic ponds.

Baiada Ku-ring-gai (Dissolved air flotation at a poultry further processing plant in Sydney)

The Ku-ring-gai facility is one of Baiada’s newest highly automated advanced processing plants. The wastewater treatment plant was designed to remove solids, fats and BOD to ensure compliance with Sydney Water’s discharge requirements.

HUON (Dissolved air flotation at a fish processing plant in Tasmania)

Just north of Devonport on the Bass Highway, is Huon’s Parramatta Creek processing facility and Smokehouse and Product Innovation Centre. Hydroflux installed a DAF system to reduce the laod on the aerobic lagoons.
