White Papers and Case Studies For The Food & Beverage Industry

  1. 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.

  2. How Much Water Is Really Used In Food And Beverage Production?
    9/30/2016

    People concerned about their water footprint often make an effort to turn the faucet off quickly, take shorter showers, and cut back on watering the lawn.

  3. Successful Ammonia Removal From Wastewater Using 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors At A European Manufacturing Facility
    8/10/2017

    Ammonia is used as a cleaning and bleaching agent in the production of fertilizers, plastics, explosives, and many other products.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Supplemental Aeration System Reduces High BOD Levels And Solves Odor Issues
    9/1/2018

    A leading fruit juice company had expanded over the past ten years and increased wastewater flow from 7,000 to 11,000 gallons per day (gpd), without upgrading its wastewater treatment plant. Read the full case study to learn how after a Mazzei AirJection system was installed, dissolved oxygen levels increased in the aeration basins, which immediately eliminated the odors.

  7. Brewed To Perfection; Fifth Largest Brewery Installs RO Units
    4/9/2015

    With water shortages and energy costs increasing worldwide, brewers are turning to state-of-the-art technologies to access water and use it more conservatively.

  8. Dairy Processing Plant Maximizes Performance With New Scaling-Resistant Solution
    3/13/2017

    Wastewater from dairy applications has high amounts of calcium and phosphorus. This characteristic may cause scaling on the media of a Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor and may cause poor COD removal. Veolia was able to retrofit the client’s existing MBBR with the newly designed Z-MBBR media by AnoxKaldnes, which improved the operation of the entire wastewater system.

  9. Carbon Adsorption & Reactivation
    8/2/2016

    Chemical, petrochemical, and oil-refining plants are process-intensive operations with regulatory requirements to protect the surrounding water and air from the effects of industrial pollution. These external demands are matched by equally compelling internal pressures to address product purification needs, find alternatives to utilizing costly fresh water in production processes, reduce the carbon footprint, and operate efficiently and profitably.

  10. 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.
