Water and Wastewater Solutions For The Food and Beverage Industry

  1. 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. In Poland, traditionally, trout farms are relatively small family businesses where product quality remains high during every stage of the process. Learn how Kaeser’s rotary blowers turned a rural fishpond into an automated aqua farm by delivering air to ensure the fish are raised in the best possible environment.

  2. Wastewater Disinfection And Energy Generation Make ‘Hot’ Couple
    2/21/2014

    When the Pasteurization Technology Group (PTG) first presented their heat-based wastewater disinfection system to a group of environmental engineers, they didn’t get the response they expected.

  3. Coriolis Installation At Brewery Indicates Bright Future For SITRANS FC430
    1/10/2019

    A global beverage company produces, markets, sells and distributes a variety of beverages including beer, malt, soft drinks, fruit juices and mineral water. The brewery has utilized several types of SITRANS F flowmeters from Siemens to regulate all aspects of the brewing process for more than a decade, including SITRANS F C Coriolis meters to monitor the sugar concentration in wort prior to fermentation.

  4. Capturing Ammonia In Flue Gas Condensate Treatment For Biomass Power Stations With 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors
    8/10/2017

    Heat and power generation in biofuel engine cogeneration plants has become increasingly important as process industries look for more economical and environmentally friendly ways to produce energy.

  5. Pumps Improve Wastewater Treatment In A Sugar And Bioethanol Plant
    7/24/2018

    In the sugar and bioethanol industries, robustness and reliability of the equipment are of paramount importance.

  6. The Rotostrainer Joins The Craft Beer Revolution
    8/20/2018

    Spent hops and general brewery wastewater are natural by-products of the beer-making process and must be reused or disposed of accordingly. Some brewers are charged substantial fines for dumping high-solids wastewater into the city sewer system. With Parkson Rotostrainers, over 90% of the Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) of wastewater can be filtered out, greatly reducing the city sewer charges. Many breweries can even sell much of the spent grain and other captured solids to local farms as livestock feed, thereby profiting on an otherwise ‘waste’ product.

  7. Tap Vs. Bottled Taste Test: Consumers Weigh In
    9/18/2013

    DC Water’s taste test shines the spotlight on municipal water quality, public perception, and consumer relations.

  8. Technology Qualification Of 3M Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors For Deoxygenation Of Low Salinity Water For Polymer Flooding
    7/11/2017

    The use of low salinity water in Enhanced Oil Recovery processes has been a recent topic of discussion. The potential to increase recovery rates by altering the reservoir characteristic from an oil-wet to a water-wet state, along with potential cost savings, has garnered attention in recent years.

  9. Manipulating Dissolved Gasses With SEPAREL®: Beverages
    2/28/2018

    In the beverage industry, there are many opportunities for degassing with a SEPAREL® hollow fiber membrane due to the fact that water treatment is not as elaborate as other industries. The main focuses of water treatment in the beverage industry are the removal of harmful bacteria and dissolved chemicals for health reasons as well as the conservation of water’s natural flavor by eliminating dissolved ions, particles, and chlorine.

  10. Increase Ink Jet Print Speeds By 15% With 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ SP Series Membrane Contactors
    6/30/2017

    Many high-speed, wide-format ink jet printer manufacturers are now using 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ SP Series Membrane Contactors to remove air bubbles and excess gases from ink to reduce downtime and improve yields. Entrained bubbles and excess gases are often the cause of printing surface defects and ink flow interruptions that can cause printer shut-downs.
