Wastewater Treatment

Effectively treating wastewater produced by the food and beverage industry can be difficult. Typically, pretreatment is necessary to comply with Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTWs) permit requirements. 

Wastewater plants at food and beverage manufacturing facilities are challenged by changes in influent conditions. Common occurrences include:

  • Sludge loading from the production facility 
  • Overloading the wastewater plant through production increases
  • Temperature changes
  • Operation malfunction
  • Handling of wastewater sludge to increase ROI

Operators Unlimited assists our food and beverage customers through a variety of services. From chemical supply and optimization to system design and operations our experienced team has decades of experience to accurately assess your current process and make recommendations for system enhancements to remain fully compliant.

The challenges of food and beverage effluent requirements can include pH, Fat-Oil-Grease (FOG), Total Suspended Solids (TSS) and Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD). While others include Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD). No matter your challenges, our team has the experience and expertise to help you experience operational efficiency, remain compliant, eliminate down-time and maintain cost predictability.
