Water treatment for the food and beverage industry

With growing international and local pressure, the food  and beverage industry has to look for new ways of steering its product development and achieving continual control over costs and health risks in a bid to meet the demands of its customers.

As such, water is a major issue, whether it is an integral part of its  production processes, involved in product composition, or used for refrigeration, steam production or cleaning operations. To keep water consumption under control and ensure the reliable operation of its production, while taking account of seasonal variations and new product lines, industries are looking for a safe and top-quality water supply.

Wastewater treatment processes must be effective and scalable to ensure control over health iand environmental issues and incorporate sustainable, cost-effective sludge treatment lines.
