Breweries and other industrial beverage companies face a dilemma: They are major water users, and they also incur major wastewater costs. Some companies are trying to streamline the process by cutting out the middleman and treating their own wastewater.
Wal-Mart may be in trouble after a customer reported that he was injured when drinking what he had believed to be store brand water, but contained a chemical similar to window cleaner.
Scientists say a recent breakthrough makes it possible to put brewery wastewater to good use.
Though progressing cavity pumps are not the most-common pumps used for conveyance in food and beverage production, certain applications, such as those requiring high-pressure or conveying highly-viscous media, require this pump type. Progressing cavity pumps can be well-suited to food and beverage applications’ needs regarding contamination avoidance, but require an additional pump be included in the system for effective Clean-In-Place (CIP) procedures. With the right system design, progressing cavity pumps can reduce cost, lower maintenance needs, and achieve better results in complex conveying applications within food and beverage production.
The success of high pressure process (HPP) implementation by a large number of companies demonstrates HPP is an effective food safety measure that can be applied to mitigate risk for a variety of foods.
Flash back to a moment in time just 10 years ago — two 20-somethings out on the town stop into a burger joint. They look at the menu, order, and eat without thinking much about anything other than taste and price. Imagine a similar scenario today, but instead with assistance from the couples’ smartphones, they pause to consider the establishment’s source of beef, if gluten-free buns are offered, and whether the company uses recyclable products.
Believing your food safety processes are of the highest standard isn't enough. Can you be certain every employee made the best food safety decisions every time they faced one? Can you support this with data? If not, ask another question: “Do you want to sit in front of a jury relying on a belief your company produced food at the highest possible standards?”
