One of the most important issues within the food and beverage industry is a reliable daily supply of the desired water quality and quantity. It is vital for insuring high-quality products as well as dependable production with no downtime. The focus of Danone Ukraine is to follow extremely high international standards providing the best dairy products for the Ukrainian market.
The supplied RO unit is custom-made in sanitary design and equipped with a selection of customer-defined measurement equipment following the very high Danone standards for all components. The production needed a reliable supply of 12.5 cubic meters of demineralized ingredient water per hour.
The horizontal pressure vessels holding the membranes as well as the pipe system and valves are in stainless steel, quality AISI 316L. The unit also includes a UV disinfection unit as well as a cartridge filter on the inlet, and is equipped with a range of very high-quality instruments for measuring flows, conductivity, and redox. The inlet water for the RO unit is pre-treated in existing sand filters and ultrafiltration units.
The solution includes a CIP unit for the RO as well as installation and start-up. A factory acceptance test (FAT) has been performed in Denmark before delivery.
