Companies in food & beverage industry have unique challenges requiring advanced food & beverage water treatment and wastewater treatment solutions. These challenges include optimizing water efficiency and meeting regulatory compliance standards.
There are typically four main water treatment processes involved, 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 is typically used in 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 at food & beverage companies typically involve treating varying strength effluent streams that can fluctuate in flow and composition including total suspended solids (TSS), fats, oils, greases, particulate BOD and COD, which makes wastewater treatment challenging.
