Dissolved Air Flotation & Oil Water Separator


Carole Park, Queensland


A large international company that designs, manufactures, and distributes engines, filtration, and power generation products, required a wastewater treatment solution to treat effluent from the wash bay at their reconditioning facility to a standard complying with Queensland Urban Utilities trade waste guidelines.

MAK Water was asked to undertake a comprehensive bench testing program and subsequent validation of the proposed wastewater treatment process. The client then engaged MAK Water to design, manufacture, install and commission a plant to treat up to 36,000 litres a day of wash bay water contaminated with oil & grease.


The design incorporated an oil water separator (OWS), Flocculation and dissolved air floatation (DAF) processes to remove solids, oil and grease contaminants from the effluent.

  • Oil Water Separator pre-treatment, to decrease the load on the DAF during heavy oil contamination events
  • Bench testing to confirm compliance with trade waste discharge compliance
  • Removal of existing equipment, supply and onsite installation of interconnecting pipework and electrical
  • Onsite commissioning and training of local operators, with an ongoing service and maintenance agreement
  • ClearAccess™ Remote Monitoring and Control
