Dairy & Cheese

If you're distracted from churning out the creamiest, tastiest products because of your wastewater needs, we haven't done our job (yet).

For everything that doesn’t end up in your milk, ice creams, cheeses, butter…

Interrupting here before we make ourselves too hungry. Managing your wastewater is a necessary part of your business, but it’s not why you got into the dairy industry. Let our proven, user-friendly technologies and our onsite services take the stress out of meeting your wastewater treatment requirements.

Get your dissolved oxygen more efficiently, more serviceably, more durably.

If you’ve got old existing aeration basins, let us help you make it work harder for you, rather than you working harder for it. How?

  • Our Matrix Plus membranes last longer, particularly in harsh meat processing wastewater, and help keep your system operating at its peak.
  • Our FlexAir diffusers optimize your air distribution to maximize your dissolved oxygen.
  • Our ModuleAir configurations offer access to your diffusers, even those at the bottom of a full basin.
  • Turn your existing activated sludge plant into a more efficient, reliable, and simpler system with BioPorts IFAS.

Not all aerated basins are created equal. Don’t replace your aeration without considering whether your system could work harder, more reliably, with less cost.

Look Inside

FlexAir aeration comes in many forms, including disc, tube, panel, or even Streamline which integrates the diffuser into your piping for ultimate efficiency.

Did you know?

Membranes come into direct contact with wastewater’s harshest contaminants, and choosing the right material can be the difference between a system that lasts a month or a decade.

Case Study

More than a decade ago, Leprino Foods, globally one of the largest mozzarella makers, started taking EDI up on our Aeration for life™ promise.

Achieve ultra-low Phosphorus levels.

If you’re discharging environmentally, there’s a good chance phosphorus limits are in your future (if not your present reality); after all, its a key contributor to algae overgrowth and resulting dead zones in our lakes and oceans. In many jurisdictions, phosphorus limits as low as 50 micrograms (0.05 mg/L) are becoming the norm, and how are industrial dischargers supposed to meet that? We have the answer.

With Blue PRO® reactive filtration, you can meet phosphorus and metals limits down to microgram-per-liter levels previously thought untouchable, and best of all its built on an easy-to-use platform that delivers excellent solids polishing and is California Title 22-approved for reuse-quality wastewater.

Did you know?

Blue PRO meets the lowest-known municipal Phosphorus limit in North America.

The proven Centra-flo continuous-backwash upflow sand filter is the perfect platform on which to base Blue PRO reactive filtration.

Case Study

For almost a decade, Marlborough, MA has used Blue PRO to meet Phosphorus limits of <0.07 mg/L—without breaking the bank.

Expand your treatment capacity, not your footprint.

You can achieve more treatment with less space. Whether you discharge environmentally or to a municipal treatment plant, you want to use as much of your real estate for expanding production that makes you money, not wastewater treatment. But expanding production also means more high-loading wastewater that either needs to be treated to meet your discharge permits or to avoid huge municipal surcharges.

You may think that you don’t have the space or money to cut your loading, but have you met the BioPorts MBBR? With its HPDE media providing a perfect home for the bacteria that breaks down your organic loading, a BIoPorts MBBR can handle high-strength and highly-variable wastewater. It does so in a way that’s easy to run, low maintenance, and so efficient on space, it can fit in spaces you might never have considered wastewater treatment could fit.

Did you know?

Because the BioPorts media breaks up bubbles, low-maintenance coarse bubble aeration gets fine-bubble-level oxygen transfer efficiencies.

BioPorts MBBR media has a proprietary design that maximizes durability and protected surfaces.

Case Study

Leeds, AL was wondering whether their tight site had the real estate to upgrade their treatment capacity. Then they met the BioPorts MBBR.

Let us handle your dirty work.

Even if you have full-time wastewater treatment staff, there are some jobs worth offloading. Maybe it’s the on-water work of inspecting and cleaning your aeration diffusers. Maybe it’s the big job of replacing outdated, inefficient membranes. Maybe it’s getting your brand new equipment installed by the manufacturer’s own wastewater treatment experts, not just any contractor between paving jobs, and having that single point of responsibility.

It’s worth hiring the right team to get the job done right, done faster, and with a warranty. That right team is SiteWorks, our elite onsite wastewater treatment squad and your wastewater operator’s new best friends. SiteWorks’ only goal is to ensure your plant is well installed, serviced, and (should the need arise) repaired, so you never have to worry about your wastewater treatment again. 

Did you know?

SiteWorks installs, services, and repairs all makes and models of wastewater treatment plants.

Decide once…

…have it done right forever. Service contracts from SiteWorks ensure your treatment plant gets the attention it needs, when it needs it, without you lifting a finger.

Case Study

Since 1994, Duckett Creek, MO’s 5 MGD plant has saved tens of thousands of dollars annually thanks to upgrades, services, and expansions performed by SiteWorks.

The right membrane for your aeration can make all the difference

The wrong fine-bubble aeration membrane will be eaten alive by the fats, oils and greases in the average dairy wastewater. The membrane is the mere millimetres-thick material on the outside of your aeration diffuser that makes the fine bubbles and prevents fouling. Choosing the right membrane could mean it lasts 30-50% longer, and maximizes your system’s efficiency over that time. So how do you know which is the right membrane?

The membrane experts in charge of EDI’s FlexAir fine-bubble aeration have tested it. We have helped many different dairy producers identify the right material for their aeration; we have even developed custom membranes for different industries, like our proprietary Matrix and Matrix Plus EPDM-embedded membranes. Having the right membrane keeps our customer’s wastewater treatment running, because we know dairy production doesn’t take a day off, so neither can our aeration.

Look Inside

It’s science: FlexAir’s 1-2mm diameter bubbles have a higher surface area-per-volume and rise more slowly than bigger bubbles. The resulting increase in dissolved oxygen makes your treatment plant work more efficiently.

Did you know?

Adding aeration to a pond not only improves performance, but might actually save you expensive desludging.

Case Study

One of the largest municipal wastewater treatment facilities in Asia, Bai Long Gang in Shanghai treats an average of 2.8 million m3/day (740 MGD). What did FlexAir aeration save them by increasing efficiency just 10%?
