Water is as essential to the food and beverage industry as it is to our survival. Without it, the food and beverage industry wouldn’t exist. Some food and beverage plants use water directly from the municipal water supply, while others get distilled or deionised water brought in on trucks. Some food and beverage plants recycle treatable wastewater onsite, so as little water as possible is wasted. In fact, many plants are now installing water treatment facilities onsite to drive down…

When you acquire plant and machinery like a water treatment system the biggest decision you will have to make is how to structure the purchase. Should you buy it outright? Should you lease it? Should you finance it? Your decision will come down to what works best for your cash flow situation. In December 2020, the Government extended the £1m Annual Investment Allowance (AIA) to December 2021 to aid recovery during the coronavirus pandemic. This means businesses can spend up…

The three stages of wastewater treatment are known as primary, secondary and tertiary. Each stage purifies water to a higher level. In some applications, only one or two stages are necessary. The level of treatment necessary depends on the water’s intended use case, and what environment it will be discharged into. Primary treatment (stage 1) Primary wastewater treatment involves sedimentation. This is when wastewater is temporarily held in large sedimentation tanks to remove settleable solids. With gravity, heavier solids sink to the…

Ever since UVC light was discovered in the 1870s it has been used for disinfecting hard surfaces. In 1908, the French started using it to disinfect the municipal water supply and this started the application of UV water purification. UV water purification systems are extremely effective at destroying illness-causing microorganisms. The powerful energy from UVC light breaks down DNA at a genetic level, cutting through microorganisms like a knife through butter. While UV water treatment is often used in industrial processes like…

Water recycling reclaims water and treats it so it can be reused. Recycled water is commonly used in agricultural processes like irrigation and industrial processes like drilling because it significantly reduces tap water consumption. The petrochemical, chemical, food and beverage, and pharmaceutical industries are good examples of industries that use significant volumes of water; and wastewater and effluent are natural by-products of their industrial processes. This waste can be treated to a specified quality so that it can be reused…

With the correct treatment system, even the dirtiest wastewater like sewage can be transformed into drinking water. If that notion disgusts you a little bit, that’s probably because you see sewage as waste rather than as the valuable resource it is. Each day in the UK, sewers collect over 11 billion litres of wastewater, which equates to approximately 150-litres per person. This ends up in water treatment facilities, where it is processed to purify it so it can be discharged…

COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by a new strain of coronavirus. Research has shown that it can live in water for at least a few days. Thankfully, water treatment facilities in the UK have processes that kill viruses during purification, and because of this, COVID-19 has not been detected in drinking water yet. One of the most effective processes at treating water for COVID-19 is UV treatment, a process we enable with our UV water treatment range. UV light…

Wastewater is used water that needs to be treated before it can be returned to the water cycle. Wastewater treatment describes the process we use to purify wastewater, to remove contaminants and make it cyclable again. This treatment process is essential to return wastewater to a specified quality so that it can be used again or returned to nature. Treatment phases There are two basic phases of water treatment: Solids removal. This is the primary stage. Techniques used: Sedimentation, skimming,…

Industrial Pre treatment Processes across the UK are facing a chemical supply problem, brought about by an industry shortage as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. This got us thinking – how many water treatment plants out there are struggling to source the chemicals they need for their production, and what is the alternative? The answer: more than likely, the majority would be facing the issue and reverse osmosis could be the solution. Read More About RO Systems As you may know,…

‘Water Filtration’ is a term that refers to the filtration of impurities, contaminants, and chemicals from any water source to improve its quality and make it fit for its intended use. Types of Water Filtration Systems Water is the only natural resource that is used universally for multiple purposes. Water is a significant component for many crucial processes in industrial and commercial businesses, and not just for drinking purposes. Each water filtration system varies from the other to subsequently achieve…
