White Papers and Case Studies For The Food & Beverage Industry

  1. Nestlé Pumps Innovation Well For California Water Savings
    6/5/2015

    In parched California, Nestlé USA is undertaking numerous measures to conserve water in its food and beverage operations across that state. Four years into a significant drought in the nation’s most populous state, California government officials recently began initiating mandatory controls on water usage for businesses, farms, and residents. Nestlé is hoping to stay ahead of these developments and allay pressure from environmental groups that criticize increasing use of bottled water, one of the company’s major product lines.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Kirin Beer Uses 3M Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors For CO2 and O2 Removal to Prevent Pipe Corrosion at Three of Their Japanese Breweries
    6/28/2017

    In the food and beverage industry, there is a growing awareness of environmental considerations wherever chemicals are used. In response, companies are trending towards alternative systems that operate with less chemical usage.

  5. Aeration System Eliminates Odors From Winery Wastewater Lagoons
    5/1/2017

    A California winery was having odor problems from its wastewater evaporation lagoons. The wash and wastewater from this facility contain large amounts of organic matter. The wastewater is collected and pumped to two main lagoons for evaporation, percolation, and sprinkler irrigation.

  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. Repair Of Major Damage To High Density Polyethylene Wastewater Pipeline
    8/13/2018

    Leprino Foods, the world's largest mozzarella cheese producer, operates two plants that share one wastewater pipeline – a 16” SDR11 High Density Polyethylene Pipeline (operating at approximately 160 PSI). During dirt work an “auger” hit the wastewater pipeline and drilled an 8” diameter hole in the line. Leprino needed immediate access to a repair fitting for this line.

  8. AnoxKaldnes MBBR Reduced Wastewater OPEX At Meat Processing Facility
    4/22/2016

    Valley Pride Pack wanted to reduce the operational costs associated with their wastewater treatment system.

  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. 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.
