Food and Beverage Processing

Food and beverage processing companies have unique challenges requiring advanced food and beverage water treatment and wastewater treatment solutions. These challenges include optimizing water efficiency and exceeding regulation compliance standards.

There is typically four main water processes involved in food and beverage processing. These processes are cooling water, process water, boiler feed water and process wastewater. The typical allocation of water used in each process varies by industry, from about 60-65% for processing uses in the meat & poultry industry to about 15-20% for the sugar processing industry.

Process water in the food industry typically includes the washing of raw food items and food processing equipment, dissolving/extraction, and the addition of water to the final product.

Cooling water is typically used in refrigeration equipment and in equipment required to cool raw materials used in production.

Boiler feed water is used for cooking, evaporation or heating equipment used in production.

Wastewater treatment in food/beverage processing operations typically involves treating varying strength effluent streams that can fluctuate in flow and composition including total suspended solids (TSS), fats/oils/greases, particulate BOD and COD, making wastewater treatment challenging.
