White Papers and Case Studies For The Food & Beverage Industry

  1. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Degassing Modules Improve Ice Production At The Ice Palace In Moscow
    8/10/2017

    An innovative approach to high quality ice production has been adopted by the new Ice Palace in Moscow.

  2. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors Provide An Easy, Flexible Solution For Managing Dissolved Oxygen In Hard Cider
    7/11/2017

    Controlling dissolved oxygen (DO) levels during beverage production is vital for ensuring consistent product quality and shelf life. This is particularly true for canning, where high DO levels can cause breakdown of the can lining, corrosion and even leaking – which in turn can result in product waste and customer dissatisfaction. In some cases, can supplier warranties have exclusions for high DO levels.

  3. 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.

  4. Food Processor Monitors Water Usage And Verifies Meter Calibration
    11/22/2015

    A food processing company in northern California has a small wastewater treatment plant to treat its wastewater before releasing it back to the local municipality.

  5. 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. 

  6. Bubble Removal From Aqueous Streams Using 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ SP Series Membrane Contactors
    7/18/2017

    Many manufacturing processes, analytical measurements, and other industrial processes that involve aqueous solutions are adversely affected by bubbles in the fluid stream. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ SP Series Membrane Contactors provide a very simple, cost effective solution to help eliminate bubbles from such processes.

  7. Environmentally Sustainable Waste/Wastewater Treatment System For Leading Snack Manufacturer
    4/22/2016

    Jack Link’s, a leading protein snack producer, was in need of a water treatment solution at its facility in Alpena, South Dakota.

  8. Foods - Biochemical Oxygen Demand And Chemical Oxygen Demand
    1/25/2016

    A food manufacturer in Washington state had a source of well water contaminated with vegetable and fish oils. A five gallon sample was was sent to Kaselco for testing via our electrocoagulation process.

  9. 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.

  10. Deaeration System Eliminates Need For Maintenance And Cuts Cost For Paulaner Brewery
    12/10/2013

    High oxygen levels in beer will cause organoleptic problems in the final product, so breweries aim to achieve oxygen-free water. Since Paulaner Brewery installed a modular, water deaeration system that uses hydrophobic hollow fiber membranes to remove dissolved gasses, the unit has operated maintenance-free. This tech brief outlines the unit’s design, operation, and the resulting reduction of energy consumption costs.
