RESOURCES FOR THE FOOD & BEVERAGE INDUSTRY
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.
Frozen Vegetable Supplier Exceeds Effluent Requirements With MBBR
A frozen vegetable company was the premier supplier of individually quick-frozen onions, potatoes, roasted potatoes and vegetable blends to large food service companies. At their processing facility, a significant barrier to growth was faced due to an aging wastewater treatment system, which could not treat the anticipated flows that a plant expansion and production increase would generate.
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
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.
