• Description: Miraka
  • Location: Taupo
  • Installed: 2011
  • Project type: APEX50 DAF Unit

The Apex DAF unit with the capacity of  50m3/hr was installed at Miraka as part of a greenfields development to process dairy factory wastewater at a number of different flow rates depending on the level in the upstream balance tank.  The unit includes an acid dosing system for the coagulation and removal of milk fat and solids and features our robust white water (dissolved air solution) pump, the ability to run in traditional recycle or side stream modes, an automatically retracting and clean in place pH probe on the DAF feed and a turbidity probe to continuously monitor plant performance and automatically reprocess any wastewater that has not been sufficiently treated.

Treated wastewater is neutralised by the additional of powdered lime following the DAF unit and before irrigation to land.
