Demineralized water for brewery with low water and energy consumption
Process water - production of beer and soft drinks
Water is one of the primary ingredients in beer and soft drinks. Therefore, a brewery has a large consumption of high-quality water.
This is also the case for the Danish brewery in Skælskør owned and run by Harboes Bryggeri A/S since 1883. Harboe is a company with a very strong corporate culture emphasizing responsibility, collaboration, quality and results. When it was time for replacement of the existing water treatment plant, it was a matter of course to exploit new and energy efficient technology in order to minimize the consumption of water and energy.
The result was a thorough upgrade instead of just a replacement. EUROWATER supplied, installed and commissioned a newly developed series of reverse osmosis units - the RO-PLUS. This series is interesting because it is designed for a recovery of up to 90 % compromising neither reliability nor water quality.
The upgrade has resulted in considerable savings as well as a lower environmental impact due to reduced water and energy consumption. The return on investment (ROI) was about one year.
Flow: 3 x 20 m³/h
Conductivity: < 15 µS/cm
Recovery: 88 %
