• Description: Wastewater treatment plant upgrade
  • Location: Palmerston North
  • Installed: 2014
  • Project type: Design, build, install and commission

A major upgrade of the wastewater treatment plant at Fonterra Brands Kapiti Ice Cream included the installation of an Apex 20m3/hour DAF unit for the removal of milk fats and solids from the wastewater to ensure consent compliance.  The old treatment plant was decommissioned and the new plant  installed without disrupting production on site.  The DAF has been designed to operate with minimal operator involvement and includes automatic cleaning of the scrapers and pH probes.
