Water treatment for food and beverage production

Think water treatment first

Process water within the food and beverage industry includes water in various qualities for purposes such as ingredient, processing, steam, washing, cooling, CIP or sanitation. Correct water treatment ensures:

Product quality

Consistent level of product quality


Food safety

Correct use and control of water as food contact material (FCM)


Water supply

Operational reliability in water supply


Hygienic design

Hygienic design ensuring low risk of microbiological growth


High water utilization 

The production of food and beverages requires a large amount of water and the water quality is crucial to the product quality and operational reliability. This calls for technologies that can provide the required water quality but also reduce water consumption.

EUROWATER has the products and the know-how to meet these demands without compromising the reliability nor the water quality.


Save water and energy with RO-PLUS units

RO-PLUS is a series of reverse osmosis units for demineralizing water. The units are designed for low water and energy consumption:

- Water recovery rate up to 90 % 
- The reliability nor the water quality is compromised
- Chemical free solution
- High efficiency pumps designed to reduce energy consumption

Selection of water treatment within food & beverage industry

Dechlorination, odour and taste adjustment

Activated carbon filter removes organic compounds from the water, that make the water taste or smell bad. Activated carbon filtration can also remove chlorine, which in some countries can be common in tap water from public water systems used for disinfection of the water. Chlorine must be removed from inlet water prior to softning by ion exchange or membrane filtration, because it can cause severe damage to membranes and ion exchange resins.

Activated carbon removes:

  • Organic compounds

  • Pesticides 


  • Chlorine

  • Chlorine bi-products

See activated carbon filters


Optimize with UPCORE™

UPCORE is an ion exchange technology using the counter-current principle for regeneration. Using this principle for demineralized or softened water ensures:

- Excellent water quality 
- Reduced water and chemical consumption
- Self-cleaning regeneration  
- Pressure loss is kept low for less energy consumption
- Insensitivity to product variations and stops

Own water supply?

Many companies establish their own small waterworks. This to get the amount of treated water that are required for keeping operational reliability.  

Get drinking water quality with a closed pressure filter that removes iron, manganese, ammonium, arsenic, pesticides and mechanical impurities.
