Clearwater Industries offers a variety of solutions and equipment for wastewater produced by the food and beverage industries. Our clarifiers and chemical preparation systems provide treatment solutions for various applications, from pretreatment to polishing.

The food and beverage industry uses a lot of water in its production process, creating large volumes of wastewater. Usually containing high levels of suspended solids (TSS), fats, oil, grease (FOG), biological oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), nitrogen (TKN), phosphorus (TP), and other contaminants, the wastewater requires treatment before discharge or reuse. Growing consumer concern for sustainability, rising utility costs, and evolving regulations pressure processors to find efficient wastewater treatment.


Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) Systems are proven to significantly reduce TSS, FOG, and BOD from food and beverage wastewater streams. Dissolved air micro-bubbles float the organic loads to the top of the water, where a skimmer removes the sludge. DAF systems provide pretreatment, tertiary treatment, sludge thickening, and post-biological treatment sludge separation. Our DAF systems operate in various food and beverage industry applications providing efficient mechanical treatment with minimal operator attention.


In the food and beverage industry, chemical systems accurately prepare and dose necessary chemical solutions for pH adjustment, coagulation, and flocculation. Our chemical systems provide a uniform chemical solution with automated dosing to guarantee efficient chemical conditioning.
