  3. 5 Approaches to Treating Wastewater in Food (Meat) Production
    5/10/2016

    The meat processing industry consists of two major groups - slaughterhouses and packinghouses. A slaughterhouse is a plant that harvests animals and whose main product is fresh meat as a whole or smaller meat cuts. A packinghouse is a plant that both slaughters and processes fresh meat to cured, smoked, canned and other prepared meat products.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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. 

  7. Wastewater Transformed From Problem To Profit
    9/4/2014

    Latin America and the Caribbean have rich potential to replace fossil fuels with green energy as technology delivers profitable and environmentally friendly alternative sources of heat and electricity generation.

  8. 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.

  9. The Benefits Of Reusing Wastewater
    1/16/2015

    Since water is an essential element in food or beverage operations, reusing it can reduce a business’s water usage ratios, help meet sustainability goals, lower supply risk and contribute to cost savings, making it a top priority for many companies today.

  10. 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.
