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. Kirin Beer Uses 3M Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors For CO2 and O2 Removal to Prevent Pipe Corrosion at Three of Their Japanese Breweries
    6/28/2017

    In the food and beverage industry, there is a growing awareness of environmental considerations wherever chemicals are used. In response, companies are trending towards alternative systems that operate with less chemical usage.

  3. Using ‘TransMembraneChemiSorption’ (TMCS) For Ammonia Removal From Industrial Waste Waters
    7/4/2017

    Dissolved gases like NH3, H2S or NOx in waste water lead to contamination in the sewage system and high treatment costs for municipal waste water treatment plants. 

  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. 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.

  6. Flow Meter Ensures A Smooth Running Recovery Process At Bakery Production Plant
    2/24/2016

    Employing roughly 5,000 workers in 12 countries, Vandemoortele bakery and production plant owes its success to high standards of quality, innovative production technologies, and a flair for finding economic alternatives. The latest example is the SITRANS FC430 Coriolis flow meter.

  7. Feds Take Steps To Regulate Water For Food
    4/30/2014

    Due to new rules proposed by the FDA, monitoring services and new pumps will likely be shopping-list items for food processors.

  8. New Methods In Photometry: Testing A New Spectrophotometer
    1/27/2016

    Photometry is an important part of modern laboratory activity within a beverage company. The determination of bitterness units, colour and photometric iodine samples are just some examples of the routine analysis that takes place in a brewery laboratory. These methods involve various enzymatic detections, such as the determination of alcohol or sugars (sucrose, fructose and glucose).

  9. Fresh Air, Fresh Fish
    2/2/2016

    Farming operations to plan and control fish reproduction have been around since the 15th century and are a sophisticated, mechanized arm in the food production industry today.

  10. Make The Most Of Food And Beverage Effluent
    3/30/2017

    As focus on resource recovery intensifies, food and beverage operations are under a particularly large microscope. An anaerobic digester designed for the food and beverage industry can create value out of the space’s unique wastewater.
