RESOURCES FOR THE FOOD & BEVERAGE INDUSTRY
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.

Advances In Flowmeter Technology
This article disucsses two trends turning the flowmeter industry on its ear: advances in flowmeter diagnostics and the adoption of smartphone-like technology to improve access and communications.
Successful Screening Pilot At A Major Waste-To-Energy Player
Parkson recently had a very successful pilot test at the facility of a bio-feedstock supplier of waste products turned into fuel. The Rotoshear® unit, equipped with a .060” wedgewire screen, successfully removes solids directly from Industrial Waste Hauling trucks to recover grease. Screening this material before it enters the receiving station allows the facility to focus on proper treatment of the industrial wastewater rather than the expensive downtime to drain and clean their receiving pond.
Coriolis Installation At Brewery Indicates Bright Future For SITRANS FC330
