WATER & WASTEWATER TREATMENT FOR THE FOOD & BEVERAGE INDUSTRY

Location, Location — The Key To Aeration
Location, Location — The Key To Aeration

As with any industrial process, the right tool for the job depends on the nature of the task at hand. In aerobic wastewater treatment, that optimal choice often comes down to a balance between the biological and financial demands of the application. Either way, here are several performance comparisons of how multiple aeration methods and locations stack up in industrial wastewater treatment applications.

  • The Rotostrainer Joins The Craft Beer Revolution
    The Rotostrainer Joins The Craft Beer Revolution

    Spent hops and general brewery wastewater are natural by-products of the beer-making process and must be reused or disposed of accordingly. Some brewers are charged substantial fines for dumping high-solids wastewater into the city sewer system. With Parkson Rotostrainers, over 90% of the Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) of wastewater can be filtered out, greatly reducing the city sewer charges. Many breweries can even sell much of the spent grain and other captured solids to local farms as livestock feed, thereby profiting on an otherwise ‘waste’ product.

  • Milk Waste - BOD, FOG, PO4
    Milk Waste - BOD, FOG, PO4

    A milk producer operates an evaporated milk production facility that generates an average of 58,000 gpd of contaminated water with spikes of 1,200 gallons up to 12 times per day. Two 2,000 gallon batch tanks are used for pH adjustment before discharge. Most of the flow goes through the tanks.

  • Aeration System Eliminates Odors From Winery Wastewater Lagoons
    Aeration System Eliminates Odors From Winery Wastewater Lagoons

    A California winery was having odor problems from its wastewater evaporation lagoons. The wash and wastewater from this facility contain large amounts of organic matter. The wastewater is collected and pumped to two main lagoons for evaporation, percolation, and sprinkler irrigation.

  • FlexRake® Fine Screen Delivers Reliable Performance In California Winery
    FlexRake® Fine Screen Delivers Reliable Performance In California Winery

    The McManis Family Vineyard is surrounded by rural land in Ripon, California. All water on-site is courtesy of the vineyard’s own well system. With no access to city facilities, the matter of managing the site’s waste falls to the Duperon® FlexRake® FS Winery Model.

  • Using ‘TransMembraneChemiSorption’ (TMCS) For Ammonia Removal From Industrial Waste Waters
    Using ‘TransMembraneChemiSorption’ (TMCS) For Ammonia Removal From Industrial Waste Waters

    Dissolved gases like NH3, H2S or NOx in waste water lead to contamination in the sewage system and high treatment costs for municipal waste water treatment plants. 

  • Fresh Air, Fresh Fish
    Fresh Air, Fresh Fish

    Farming operations to plan and control fish reproduction have been around since the 15th century and are a sophisticated, mechanized arm in the food production industry today. In Poland, traditionally, trout farms are relatively small family businesses where product quality remains high during every stage of the process. Learn how Kaeser’s rotary blowers turned a rural fishpond into an automated aqua farm by delivering air to ensure the fish are raised in the best possible environment.

  • Successful Screening Pilot At A Major Waste-To-Energy Player
    Successful Screening Pilot At A Major Waste-To-Energy Player

    Parkson recently had a very successful pilot test at the facility of a bio-feedstock supplier of waste products turned into fuel. The Rotoshear® unit, equipped with a .060” wedgewire screen, successfully removes solids directly from Industrial Waste Hauling trucks to recover grease. Screening this material before it enters the receiving station allows the facility to focus on proper treatment of the industrial wastewater rather than the expensive downtime to drain and clean their receiving pond.
