Food products manufacturing

Food manufacturing wastewater typically contains fats and oils (usually emulsified), proteinaceous or cellular material, fibrous matter, and a variety of surfactants and chemicals ...

All of which cause problems when discharged to the sewer. Our MaxiFlox® range of coagulants and flocculants has been specifically developed for applications across the food and beverage manufacturing sectors. The range is available in both powder and liquid form and in a variety of molecular weights and charge densities tailored for the following sectors:

  • Meat
  • Bacon, ham & smallgoods
  • Poultry
  • Snackfoods
  • 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 various industry sectors. Science Development’s success is derived through providing our customers with tangible wastewater treatment performance improvement and cost savings compared with those offered by conventional treatment chemicals used in this sector. These cost savings are not limited to solely the chemical cost of treating water, but the broader elements that make up total wastewater costs: sludge disposal, trade waste charges, acid & alkali costs for pH correction (or “acid splitting”), and labour costs of operating treatment plants.
  • Treatment of wastewater in these sectors has generally used traditional metal salts coagulants such as ferric chloride and PAC 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.
  • Our unique combination of proprietary research and specialised manufacturing enables us to deliver site-specific products in relatively short times. We've achieved this in numerous instances where the composition of wastewater is unique and has needed an unconventional approach.
