RESOURCES FOR THE FOOD & BEVERAGE INDUSTRY

  • Co-Digesting Food Waste With Wastewater Solids To Produce Energy

    Inspired in part by California’s Senate Bill 1383, which was enacted to reduce organic waste and methane emissions, co-digestion is fulfilling those goals while converting wastewater treatment plants into water resource recovery facilities.

  • DELUMPER® LP Crusher Improves Cocoa Butter Processing

    Chef Rubber, based in Las Vegas, Nevada, is a manufacturer and distributor of specialty supplies for chefs and well-known confectioners. The products include silicones, molds, colorants and colored cocoa butter. These unique tools are widely used by artisan chefs to create edible works of art for special events, competitions and other artistic applications.

  • Crusher Breaks Up Large Cakes Of Enzyme Products

    American Laboratories, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of enzyme products for many food, dietary supplements, nutritional and industrial applications. The company has grown steadily, currently operating three facilities in Omaha, Nebraska. To keep pace with this expansion, the company realized, some years ago, that a more efficient way to process the enzyme material was necessary. After examining their options, they made a decision to purchase a Franklin Miller DELUMPER® Crusher 1077 S4.

  • The DELUMPER®: A Sweet Success At ADM

    ADM Cocoa Plant in Hazle Township, Pennsylvania needed help with their cocoa bean production. The plant processes two and a half million pounds of cocoa beans each day, turning them into cocoa powder, cocoa butter, and chocolate liquor. The company needed a machine to process sugar with over-sized lumps that could occur in transport or storage. Unless these agglomerated clumps were reduced to a granular form, the process could not work dependably. The machine also had to handle the large quantity of sugar processed daily and be sanitary.

  • Microbiologist Develops Improved Technology For Poultry Food Safety

    One Friday evening in the spring of 2019, Abhi Upadhyay, assistant professor of food microbiology and safety in the Department of Animal Science, found himself watching a video showing microbubbles for pet care and grooming. He started thinking about using this technology for food safety and spent the weekend researching its potential, current state of the field and appropriate grant opportunities.

  • We Brewed Beer From Recycled Wastewater — And It Tasted Great

    On Earth Overshoot Day (August 22 this year), Village Brewery, a Calgary craft beer-maker, joined University of Calgary researchers and Xylem Technologies, a U.S.-based water technology company, to brew a crisp blond ale from reused wastewater — the first case of direct potable reuse in Alberta and possibly Canada.

  • Meat Processing Companies: Benefits Of Electrocoagulation

    While vegetarianism and veganism have both grown in popularity in the past decade, vegans and vegetarians combined are vastly outnumbered by people who love meat. In the United States, where we have hot-dog-eating contests and food-eating challenges, we consume a lot of meat of all types. Therefore, meat-processing water treatment is required to package and process these foods within the U.S. and across the world.

  • Treating Food Wastewater Efficiently Using Jet Aeration

    Food processing is a water-intensive process, and its wastewater byproduct is typically high in volumetric daily flow and also biochemical and chemical oxygen demand (BOD and COD), organics, and nutrients. Consequently, significant on-site treatment and resources are necessary.

  • MBBR Technology Helps Plant Maintain Discharge Compliance, Achieve Sustainable Growth

    A bacon processing plant in the Midwest was overloaded by more than 50%. Even though the system continued to maintain compliance, the plant proactively decided to expand its wastewater treatment facility to ensure they met their growing demand and maintained their standing as exemplary corporate citizens and environmental stewards.

  • Optimal Ultrafiltration Uses For Beverage And Dairy Companies

    When you’re sipping on a cold soda or snacking on a creamy piece of cheese, you probably don’t really think about what went into making your food or beverage. Aside from the automated production-line machines, one of the most important things that goes into the making of any soda, juice, wheel of cheese, or gallon of milk is water. Producing beverages and dairy products uses substantial amounts of water within production processes.

SOLUTIONS FOR THE FOOD & BEVERAGE INDUSTRY

  • The Supreme Roller Mill - Durable, Versatile & Dependable

    The Supreme Roll Mills provide dependable size reduction of a wide variety of solids. They utilize two cylindrical rollers to fracture the material with an efficient, once-through milling action. These units can produce output sizes from 4-70 mesh and produce output in an extremely narrow size range and do so without degradation of the material. These results are impossible to accomplish with any other size reduction technology. The Rolls are available in smooth or corrugated roll configurations in order to meet exacting output size and consistency requirements.

  • DEFINER® KM

    DEFINER® KM Knife Mills are high performance processors that quickly and efficiently reduce cannabis and hemp to desired output size. They employ high shear knives that accurately cut solids to desired output size with a shear action without overgrind or excessive fines. DEFINER knife mills deliver more consistent output while maintaining the product integrity.

  • DEFINER® DF

    The DEFINER® DF2000 is an advanced lab style rotary knife mill designed to meet the stringent demands of the pharmaceutical, hemp, herb, cannabis, and food industries. The DEFINER's precise cutting action, unparalleled simplicity and ease of maintenance make the DEFINER truly unique and effective.

  • PISCES™ CFSBR Continuous Fill Sequencing Batch Reactor

    Parkson’s PISCES™ CFSBR combines the process benefits of cyclical treatment with the simplified operating concept of continuously filling all reactor tanks at all times.

  • Magnetic Flowmeter Used In Winery For TTB Audit Compliance

    The U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (or TTB for short) oversees industry compliance with U.S. government laws and regulations governing the tobacco and alcoholic beverage industries. Both large and small wineries are scrutinized for their compliance with regulations addressing alcohol content, fill levels in bottles, etc. For example, TTB guidelines require a traceable check and balance system verifying the amount of gallons used for wine blending equals the amount of gallons produced by the blending process.
