Food manufacturing wastewater typically contains fats and oils (usually emulsified), proteinaceous and/or cellular material, fibrous matter, and a variety of surfactants and chemicals – all of which cause problems when discharged to sewer.
Our MaxiFlox® range of coagulants and flocculants are specifically developed for a wide variety of applications across the food and beverage manufacturing sectors. This range is available in both powder and liquid form and in a variety of molecular weights and charge densities tailored for the following sectors:
- Bacon, ham & smallgoods
- Margarine & edible oils
- Bread, biscuits, cakes and pastries
- Pet foods
Why MaxiFlox® is Better
- Since 2001, we have been providing purpose specific chemistries for wastewater clarification and sludge dewatering in the various food sectors. Science Development’s success is derived through providing our customers with tangible wastewater treatment performance improvement and cost savings compared to the traditional and conventional treatment chemicals used in this sector. These cost savings may not necessarily be curtailed to solely the chemical cost of treating water, but the broader world that makes up total wastewater costs, i.e., sludge disposal costs, trade waste charges, acid & alkali costs for pH correction (or “acid splitting”), and labour costs of operating treatment plants.
- Treatment of wastewater in the food sector has generally used the traditional metal salts’ coagulants such as ferric chloride to treat their wastewater. Our MaxiFlox® chemistry therefore offers companies the opportunity to achieve operational benefits and cost savings compared to conventional metal salts’ coagulants, such as Ferric Chloride or PAC.
- Our unique combination of proprietary research and specialised manufacturing enables us to develop and manufacture site-specific products in relatively short times. This has been done for numerous customers in the food sector where the composition of their wastewater is exceptionally unique and varied and requires an unconventional approach.
