Water Treatment Solutions
Food and beverage industries provide essential services, with water as an essential ingredient. Saltworks can help you boost freshwater recovery and minimize brine waste. Contact us to see how we can significantly improve your water recovery.
Food & Beverage Challenges
Saltworks can help food and beverage producers to treat wastewater for reuse or surface discharge. We can treat the toughest brines, even those laden with organics. Our experts help you to meet your recovery targets with enhanced reverse osmosis (RO) systems: we can augment your existing process with ‘bolt-on’ solutions, or we can design and build a new plant that’s fitted to your needs.
- Enhance RO—from incremental to turbo charged
- Address fouling risk
- Use selective removal to target ion discharge limits
- Wine tartaric stabilization
- Reduce waste volumes
- Water and reagent recycling
- Zero liquid discharge (ZLD)
- Treat and recover acid
- Treat high organics e.g. oils and grease
Expertly Optimized RO
The food and beverage industries use RO to desalinate, producing a more concentrated, lower volume fluid (or even solids) that allows discharge of freshwater, makes disposal easier, and lowers transport costs. Safe final disposal involves discharging brine to sewers, surface water, injection wells, or sending it to environmental service providers.
We can help to get the best performance, cost-effectiveness, and longevity out of RO systems, while managing scaling and fouling risks:
- Our XtremeRO brine concentrator products run at high recoveries and are suitable for a wide range of wastewaters
- Our XtremeUF ceramic ultrafiltration (UF) system removes organics and particulate and uses intelligent self-cleaning to manage fouling risk
- Our ScaleSense sensor measures scaling ions in real-time while our BrineRefine automated chemical softening system can treat them with precise dosing, efficiently increasing recovery.
- Our SaltMaker evaporative crystallizer products can further concentrate brine to minimal or zero liquid discharge (MLD or ZLD).
Wastewater Treatment Options
To meet food and beverage producers’ wastewater treatment needs optimally, it may be necessary to combine treatment, transport, and disposal options. Saltworks’ brine management experts can help you to understand your options—including discharge regulations and economics.
