Water and Wastewater Solutions For The Food and Beverage Industry

  1. Precise Control Of Dissolved O2 And N2 In Semiconductor Applications Using 3M Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors
    7/12/2017

    Semiconductor manufacturers increasingly want precise control of O2 and N2 concentrations in ultrapure water. Specifically, the polishing loop of a semiconductor plant needs to control dissolved O2 to low levels of 1 ppb or 5 ppb while simultaneously controlling the dissolved N2 between 8–12 ppm.

  2. Monitor Your Pump For Process Efficiency
    12/3/2017

    Pumps are all too frequently one of the most overlooked and abused pieces of equipment in process automation, yet nothing moves without them and a process becomes inefficient when they don’t operate properly or completely shutdown. 

  3. A Cool Method For Industrial Water Reuse
    4/3/2017

    By harvesting heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) condensate, industrial operations can take advantage of a cool, convenient source of clean water.

  4. Rokeby Generating Station Saves 50% In Capital Expense By Using 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ EXF-14x28 Series Membrane Contactors To Remove CO₂ To Extend Mixed Bed Resin Life
    8/10/2017

    Lincoln Electric Systems (LES) recently commissioned a membrane decarbonation system using  3M™ Liqui-Cel™ EXF-14x28 Series Membrane Contactors to remove CO2 prior to their mixed bed deionizers.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Aerobic Treatment Of Wastewater For Fish Flour And Fish Oil Company For Reuse
    8/8/2018

    As a result of Fluence’s reuse solution, this fish processing company has zeroed its water footprint, reducing water consumption to the point that the company no longer needs to buy water, but instead produces a surplus available for irrigation, reuse, or reintroduction into the environment.

  8. Alcoholic Beverage Fusel Alcohol Testing With Static Headspace
    9/2/2014

    A static headspace method was developed using Teledyne Tekmar automated headspace vial samplers to meet the method requirements of the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau of the US Department of the Treasury (TTB) method SSD: TM:2001 for testing fusel alcohols in alcoholic beverages.

  9. Premiere At The Goldsteig Cheese Dairy
    2/5/2016

    A Kaeser EBS series screw blower is making wastewater treatment considerably more efficient and effective at the Goldsteig dairy factory in Cham in the Upper Palatinate region in Germany.

  10. Improving Compliance Through Real-Time Phosphorus Control
    4/18/2017

    Levels of phosphorus, a chemical element that promotes organic growth, must be controlled in wastewater coming from beverage, food and dairy processing plants. Failure to control phosphorus accurately has a negative impact on water quality and can lead to large fines.
