WATER & WASTEWATER TREATMENT FOR THE FOOD & BEVERAGE INDUSTRY

Location, Location — The Key To Aeration
Location, Location — The Key To Aeration

As with any industrial process, the right tool for the job depends on the nature of the task at hand. In aerobic wastewater treatment, that optimal choice often comes down to a balance between the biological and financial demands of the application. Either way, here are several performance comparisons of how multiple aeration methods and locations stack up in industrial wastewater treatment applications.

  • On-Site Disinfection Generation Enables City To Provide High Quality Water For Industrial Food Processing Customers
    On-Site Disinfection Generation Enables City To Provide High Quality Water For Industrial Food Processing Customers

    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.

  • The Rotostrainer Joins The Craft Beer Revolution
    The Rotostrainer Joins The Craft Beer Revolution

    Spent hops and general brewery wastewater are natural by-products of the beer-making process and must be reused or disposed of accordingly. Some brewers are charged substantial fines for dumping high-solids wastewater into the city sewer system. With Parkson Rotostrainers, over 90% of the Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) of wastewater can be filtered out, greatly reducing the city sewer charges. Many breweries can even sell much of the spent grain and other captured solids to local farms as livestock feed, thereby profiting on an otherwise ‘waste’ product.
