  • Fish Hatchery Chooses UV Disinfection (Case Study)

    Located on the Klamath River in Hornbrook, California, Iron Gate Hatchery is a salmon and steelhead hatchery that releases fish back to the Klamath River. Due to the presence of the fungus Saprolegnia sp and primarily bacteria Flavobacterium psychrophila and Metallogenium sp), hatchery yield was thwarted due to disease.

  • Salmon Hatchery Upgrades Its UV Disinfection System (Case Study)

    While the facility was receiving awards and accolades for their aquaculture production, they were having challenges keeping their former UV system operating consistently and reliably. Spare parts were expensive and they often experienced periods of down-time, negatively affecting operations.

  • Food Sanitation Startup Uses Innovation And SMART Digital Dosing To Fight COVID-19

    As a startup that has been recognized for its innovation in food safety, Clean Works quickly recognized its unique position to help fight COVID-19 by using its produce disinfection technology to disinfect critically needed masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE).

  • SMART Digital Dosing Pumps Help Craft Brewer Focus On Water Quality

    Consistency is paramount in brewing operations. Careful attention to water quality control ensures every beer tastes the same everywhere it’s distributed. This is especially true for MadTree Brewing, Ohio’s first canned craft brewer. Since the company’s inception in 2013, reverse osmosis (RO) has been used for all its process water

  • How Food And Beverage Companies Can Get Ahead Of The Water Scarcity Curve

    High-quality water is critical to food and beverage production — both as an ingredient and a process enabler — so the sourcing challenges faced by municipal water systems pose an ongoing threat to the health of the industry. Fortunately, there are a variety of technology options now available to improve water security.

  • America’s Oldest Brewery Improves Bottom Line With A “Solids” Solution

    Yuengling brewery plant in Pottsville, PA, brews four major products – Ale, Lager, Pilsner and Porter – each with a different brewing process. Their wastewater contains mostly sugar and yeast and small quantities of spent grain, which is treated at their onsite wastewater treatment plant, built in 2000. Yuengling had operated the static screens for several years, tolerant of the screens’ performance and the resulting operational inefficiencies, however, decided it was time for change.

  • 4 Benefits Of Electrocoagulation For Food And Beverage Wastewater Treatment

    With a global population of over seven billion people, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of companies in the world that produce the food and beverages that are needed to meet this global demand. These companies require massive amounts of water to produce their products, and those products result in equal amounts of wastewater. It’s simple enough to just discharge the wastewater into a nearby stream or surface water source and be finished with it. However, with constantly changing environmental regulations and pressure to be more environmentally conscious, food and beverage companies face increasing requirements of beverage and food wastewater treatment.

  • MBR System Treats Nut Processor’s High Strength Wastewater with Ease

    The macadamia nut is indeed favored by many as a high quality nut, evidenced by its extensive use in desserts or simply as a premium stand-alone snack. One of the world’s leading producers of these delicious nuts produces more than 15 million pounds each year from its Hawaii processing plant.

  • MBBR-DAF System Provides The 'Perfect Solution' For Alchemist Brewery

    Alchemist Brewery is a microbrewery specializing in brewing, packaging and distributing its award-winning IPA beer, Heady Topper. An unprecedented following of the signature ale drove the need for a larger brewery and retail sales center. The brewery operates with a profound respect for environmental responsibility, so with a new facility in the horizon, there was opportunity to explore wastewater treatment system options that would allow them to minimize their impact on the town’s wastewater infrastructure.
