Food and Beverage Water Treatment Applications
Boiler and Cooling Tower Pretreatment
Efficient operation of boilers and cooling towers demands a very high quality of water. If contaminants are present in this feedwater, it can result in various negative effects – such as loss of heat efficiency, increased fuel consumption, corrosion, scaling, fouling and reduced productivity. Both reverse osmosis and chemical treatment assist food and beverage manufacturers in improving operations while decreasing costly maintenance and downtime.
Water treatment technologies aid food and beverage producers in reducing wastewater discharge and energy consumption. Treatment methods for this application include chemicals, reverse osmosis, ozonation and various other filtration solutions. Ultrapure provides a comprehensive, multi-tiered approach to wastewater management, complying with all EPA standards.
Process and Ingredient Water
The consistency and quality of food and beverage process or ingredient water plays a large role in overall product safety and cost efficiency. Various water treatment methods are used to achieve the desired water quality, which changes depending on the recipe and manufacturing process. Carbon filtration, reverse osmosis, ultraviolet purification, ozonation and water softening all remain solutions for reducing costs and minimizing use of capital or environmental resources.
In food and beverage production, liquid waste can be reclaimed and recycled, which provides manufacturers with several benefits. These include reduced plant operating costs and improved water-use ratio.
