Water and Wastewater Solutions For The Food and Beverage Industry

  1. Microbial Control In Cheese Making
    12/5/2014

    Microbial contamination of food and beverage products is a potentially catastrophic occurrence resulting in foodborne illness or food spoilage. The same nutritive properties that render cheese and dairy products such a valuable food also provide an ideal growth medium for microbes if contamination occurs.

  2. Desalination Plants Benefit From MagMeters With Unique Virtual Reference Feature
    11/15/2011

    In certain applications, conventional grounding of electromagnetic flowmeters can pose special challenges. This article illustrates those challenges and sheds light on a unique solution that is especially suitable for problematic applications, some of which are found in desalination facilities.

  3. The Advantages Of Automating Wastewater Treatment
    10/1/2016

    Wastewater treatment operations are beginning to embrace the power of automation. How can it help? And how is it implemented?

  4. Leak Detection Using Conductivity
    11/11/2013

    Virtually all industries from food and beverage to chemical processing use heat exchangers, condensers,or jacketed vessels. Leakage of the process into the cooling water represents a loss of product and can be a source of fouling or corrosion in the cooling water system.

  5. Sanitary District Generates EPA Award By Turning Trash To Treasure
    4/3/2018

    The Greater Lawrence Sanitary District (GLSD) in North Andover, MA, was one of 28 organizations nationwide to be honored for an innovative water or wastewater project in the most recent PISCES Recognition Program sponsored by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF). PISCES stands for Performance and Innovation in the SRF Creating Environmental Success.

  6. Stainless Steel XFP Pump For Reliable And Efficient Pumping In Tough Conditions
    7/21/2018

    The wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) of the Avebe cooperative consists of several pumping stations equipped with stainless steel pumps type Scanpump, built in 1996.

  7. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactor Technology Being Evaluated For Dissolved Gas Removal From Water In Many Hydrocarbon Processes
    6/28/2017

    The oil and gas industry has utilized various deaeration technologies for many years to remove dissolved gases, particularly oxygen, from injection water. In many hydrocarbon recovery and water processes, degassing is necessary in order to minimize environmental impact, improve operating efficiency, avoid process issues and help protect system components.

  8. Advanced Membrane Degassing Technology For Radiation Source Term Reduction And Corrosion Control In Nuclear Power Plants
    7/4/2017

    Dissolved gas control in a nuclear power plant’s water system, including the primary make-up water storage tank and refueling water storage tank, can be essential to reduce radiation source term (defined as a release of radioactive material). In particular, controlling dissolved gases can also help reduce the formation of unwanted radionuclides, such as 14C and oxides of 60Co, and alleviate primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC).

  9. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors Can Help Meet Pure Steam Requirements In Pharmaceutical Industry
    8/10/2017

    Pure steam is used in sterilization chambers as a common method to sterilize pharmaceutical products, such as equipment parts, instruments, containers and materials for sterile environments.

  10. On-Site Disinfection Generation Enables City To Provide High Quality Water For Industrial Food Processing Customers
    7/13/2018

    The city of Buhl, Idaho, obtains all of its drinking water from groundwater sources through multiple wells. Prior to 2009, the city did not treat the groundwater but only added chlorine in the form of bulk 12.5% sodium hypochlorite to provide a disinfectant residual. A combination of factors including: changes in EPA and state DEQ regulatory requirements, growth of the residential population and growth of the industrial food processing customers forced the City to build a new water treatment plant to provide filtration to address the naturally occurring arsenic present in the groundwater.
