New dealkalizer for French brewery

Reference ID: 129671
Industry: Beverage industry, Breweries, Food industry
Application: Ingredient water, Process water, Rinse water

The customer is a French brewery with a yearly beer capacity of 100,000 hectolitre.

When brewing, the bicarbonate content is important. Through dealkalization, the hardness and the bicarbonate content of the water are reduced, thus typically reducing the salt content in the water by approximately 75%. This can be adjusted by mixing dealkalized water and raw water.

To improve the water treatment process, the brewery has replaced an old dealkalizer by a new duplex plant including UV disinfection unit and pumps with frequency inverter for energy saving. All the water treatment equipment has been updated to frame-mounted solutions from SILHORKO-EUROWATER.

Regenerations are performed with sulfuric acid and effluents are neutralized before drain.

The plant is controlled by a PLC with touch screen and communication through Ethernet.
