Many industries have some level of wastewater pretreatment before discharging to the local Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW). In the food and beverage industry, pretreatment with Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) is common to remove fats, oils and greases, along with associated Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS). These food and beverage companies are in the business of making their products, not wastewater treatment. So, often times, selecting the right piece of equipment can be a challenge.
