WATER & WASTEWATER TREATMENT FOR THE FOOD & BEVERAGE INDUSTRY

Neutralizing Dissolved Solids Aeration Concerns
Neutralizing Dissolved Solids Aeration Concerns

The presence of dissolved solids presents both physical and financial challenges for aeration diffusers in any wastewater treatment operation and can be particularly problematic in high-concentration industrial and food-processing applications. Here are some warning signs, insights, and solutions for coping with conditions that can lead to excessive dissolved solids accumulation.

    Aeration Considerations: What To Know Before You Buy

    Unlike most municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) applications, industrial wastewater can vary widely from one application to another, even within the same plant, depending on the process being run. Industrial wastewater professionals — especially those facing specific challenges or planned volume increases — can benefit from comparing key points of differentiation in jet aeration system options before making any upgrade.

  • Water Intense Meat Production Processes Will Have To Change

    A few years back, the Secretary of the International Farm Management Association (IFMA) announced that if the world’s population consumed food in the same manner as the citizens of the U.S., we would need 6 planet earths to keep up with demand. Now we know that the traditional diet of hamburgers, steaks and all-you-can-eat buffets across America’s heartland is slowly being diversified by a growing number of eating options, many far greener, i.e. Salad Works. 

  • Translating Aeration Efficiency Into Dollars
    Translating Aeration Efficiency Into Dollars

    The hardest aspects of comparing efficiencies among submerged aeration technologies are the many variables in capital expense (CAPEX), operating expense (OPEX), and complexity of wastewater makeup. Instead, consider comparing the physics of different aeration technologies and the relative costs associated with them. Here are five major categories for evaluating industrial wastewater aeration efficiency.

  • DO Or Die — Dealing With Aeration Basin Oxygen Deficiencies
    DO Or Die — Dealing With Aeration Basin Oxygen Deficiencies

    Managing the treatment of wastewater — especially industry-generated wastewater that can elevate dissolved oxygen (DO) demands far beyond those of municipal/residential applications — is hard enough. Trying to do so during upset conditions is enough to put any water treatment professional on edge. Here are several preventive and remedial options to keep in mind before or after DO readings go haywire.

  • Flow Meter Ensures A Smooth Running Recovery Process At Bakery Production Plant

    Employing roughly 5,000 workers in 12 countries, Vandemoortele bakery and production plant owes its success to high standards of quality, innovative production technologies, and a flair for finding economic alternatives. The latest example is the SITRANS FC430 Coriolis flow meter.

  • How To Be More Industrious About Water-Quality Measurement

    Precise water quality is critical for municipal water treatment operations, but many industrial applications have even more rigorous requirements, regulations, and guidelines to follow. The energy, pharmaceutical, food processing, and other industrial fields require exact water quality in order to function efficiently.
