Disinfection for F&B Industry
Cleanliness and Disinfection in the food industry are very critical requirements. Disinfection is the process by which microorganisms are killed so that their numbers are reduced to a level which is neither harmful to health nor to the quality of perishable goods. Disinfection is required in food plant operations, where wet surfaces provide favorable conditions for the growth of microbes.
What can Pristine Water offer you for your Food and Beverage business?
Pristine Water Pristine Water Electro chlorination systems offer Sodium Hypochlorite Generator which produces a strong disinfectant from common salt and electricity. The disinfectant is always freshly prepared and offers significant sanitation benefits for beverage processing, including increased beverage production, chemical cost savings, improved safety, more effective sanitation, and greener applications.
Because there is no need to continuously purchase chlorine chemicals, an On-Site Generator (OSG) like the Pristine Water Electrochlorination system typically produces chlorine at a much lower cost than traditional delivery methods as the only consumables are salt and electricity used to generate the chemical. In fact, many beverage plants will already have food-grade salt available, simplifying procurement of the only “chemical” required for the generator. Decreased transportation and safety-related costs, and lower insurance premiums offer additional savings.
Since mixed oxidants are effective at eliminating biofilm, bacterial contamination is reduced or eliminated and disinfectant requirements are reduced; and a more durable disinfectant residual safely prevents recontamination. Taste and odor carry-over are eliminated when switching from one beverage to the next, plus the solution is easily rinsed from the system, eliminating residual “chlorine” taste and odor quickly.
Effluent Management in Food and Beverage Industry:
In Food and Beverage Industry water is used as an ingredient, an initial and intermediate cleaning source, an efficient transportation conveyor of raw materials, or the principal-agent for sanitizing plant machinery and work areas. As a result of the extensive use of water, the food industry’s primary concern is that water and wastewater are handled in the most cost-effective method and reused in whatever capacity possible to reduce costs. Pristine Water offers E-Coag, electrocoagulation technology for treatment of wastewater. This offers significant removal of suspended solids, oil & grease, and BOD. It is simple and easy to operate, good settling ability of the sludge, lower sludge production, bigger produced flocks compared to the chemical treatment, and reducing secondary pollution by not using the chemical compounds and also being economic, safe, and environmentally friendly. The other capability of this process is the removal of contaminants, such as heavy metals. For instance, it is utilized for the removal of chromium, colloidal and suspended solids, fat, oil, grease, organic compounds, bacteria, viruses, cysts, dye mono-azo acid red, and dye oranges from an aqueous environment. The electrocoagulation process is suitable for a wide variety of waste-water treatment plants, such as dairy products, removal of cyanide, biochemical oxygen demand, and chemical oxygen demand (COD) from olive oil waste-water and removal of detergent from industrial waste-water of the automobile industry.
