White Papers and Case Studies For The Food & Beverage Industry

  1. Municipal Water Reuse Done Right: Lessons In Efficiency
    2/24/2014

    California water reuse program provides multiple benefits, serving as a model for other municipalities.

  2. Use Of Pure Oxygen To Resolve Capacity And Odor Problems
    7/27/2017

    The Escalon Industrial Waste Water Treatment Facility’s service area is seasonal and centered on tomato and pickle processing. The production season (roughly mid-July through mid-October) sees high hydraulic- and BOD loads that strain the facility’s capacity. During the high season highly variable BOD load depletes DO and causes permit violations and odor complaints. Praxair installed 4 X 15 HP Medium Velocity Oxygenation (MVO™ oxygenation system), with the ability to deliver up to 6 TPD of oxygen to supplement the existing aeration capacity at the facility.

  3. 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.

  4. Springdale, Arkansas, Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators Call Headworks Screens 'Bulletproof'
    1/4/2017

    The Poultry Capital of the World is a city in northwest Arkansas in the heart of the Ozark Mountain range. Springdale, Arkansas, the fourth largest city in the state, is the headquarters for Tyson Food Corporation, the world's largest meat-producing company. The city was founded in the mid-1800s and has been a hub for agriculture and industry in the region since then. In addition, the region is home to outdoors activities like fishing, hunting, camping, boating, etc., and the natural, outdoors life is enjoyed by many residents as well as visitors to the area.

  5. Fluence Provides Coca-Cola FEMSA With Wastewater Treatment For Reuse
    1/26/2016

    At the Coca-Cola FEMSA plant in Buenos Aires, Argentina, increases in production required an expansion of their wastewater treatment plant. RWL Water technicians and engineers implemented an airlift ultrafiltration (UF) system operated with a membrane bioreactor (MBR) to provide wastewater treatment for reuse.

  6. Advanced Membrane Degassing Technology For Radiation Source Term Reduction And Corrosion Control In Nuclear Power Plants
    7/4/2017

    Dissolved gas control in a nuclear power plant’s water system, including the primary make-up water storage tank and refueling water storage tank, can be essential to reduce radiation source term (defined as a release of radioactive material). In particular, controlling dissolved gases can also help reduce the formation of unwanted radionuclides, such as 14C and oxides of 60Co, and alleviate primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC).

  7. The Highs And Lows Of Flow Measurement
    3/18/2014

    In Feb. 2014, the Federal Bureau of Reclamation informed central California farmers that they would receive no irrigation water from the lakes, canals, and reservoirs under the Bureau’s control due to severe drought conditions. During the previous year, the farmers were only given 20 percent of their normal allocation of water.  California officials who oversee the state’s water holdings also released information that no water will be available to the farmers for irrigation. Residential users also saw severe cuts.

  8. Water Intense Meat Production Processes Will Have To Change
    10/15/2017

    A few years back, the Secretary of the International Farm Management Association (IFMA) announced that if the world’s population consumed food in the same manner as the citizens of the U.S., we would need 6 planet earths to keep up with demand. Now we know that the traditional diet of hamburgers, steaks and all-you-can-eat buffets across America’s heartland is slowly being diversified by a growing number of eating options, many far greener, i.e. Salad Works. 

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
