Water treatment for Food and Beverage industry 

Production of food and beverage requires a large amount of water in the right quality. Drinking water, process water, water for CIP, cooling water, rinse water, and boiler water are examples of applications where treatment of the water in one or more steps is necessary.

With today’s comprehensive environmental regulatory changes, the cost of water and access to clean water has become a major concern. This calls for technologies that can provide the required water quality but also help reduce water consumption.


High water utilization

Use efficient technologies to reduce the water and energy consumption of your water treatment plant without compromising the reliability nor the water quality.


Optimize with the UPCORE™ principle

Use ion exchange units with the countercurrent principle UPCORE™ for demineralized or softened water. This principle ensures:

  • Excellent water quality 
  • Reduction in water and chemical consumption
  • A self-cleaning regeneration effect ensures clean ion-exchange resin  
  • Pressure loss is kept at a constantly low level
  • Insensitivity to product variations and stops 

Go to demineralization plants or softening plants


Save water and energy with the RO-PLUS units

RO-PLUS is a series of reverse osmosis (RO) units for demineralization of water. The units are designed to reduce both water and energy consumption:

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

Go to reverse osmosis units


Process water

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

  • Consistent level of product quality
  • The safety of the food produced
  • Operational reliability in water supply
  • Hygienic design ensuring low risk of microbiological growth

Boiler water

Direct heat or heat from the hot water is an essential factor when producing food and beverage.

  • Obtain operational reliability with water in the right quality
  • Reduce blowdown with demineralized water
  • Deaerate feedwater with a thermal deaerator to minimize corrosion

Go to water treatment for industrial steam boilers

Brewing water

In addition to malt, water is the most important ingredient of beer. Decide the quality of the water and give your beer a unique taste.

  • Adjust the bicarbonate content by mixing dealkalized water and raw water
  • Get softened water by removing calcium and magnesium
  • Remove chlorine from the raw water with activated carbon filtration
  • Use reverse-osmosis to get demineralized water

UV disinfection on incoming water

To ensure adequate disinfection of municipal drinking water supplies, an UV disinfection system can be the solution as a hygienic barrier.

  • Reduce microbiological growth in water
  • Applicable to almost all water types
  • Ensures germ-free process water
  • Minimum maintenance

Own water supply

Many companies establish their own small waterwork to make sure they get the amount of treated water that are required for keeping operational reliability.  

  • Get drinking water quality with a closed pressure filter
  • Removes iron, manganese, ammonium, arsenic, pesticides and mechanical impurities
  • Nozzle plate ensures efficient backwash
