Food & Beverage

Food & beverage as well as agricultural industries require large volumes of water for their production, while correspondingly they generate large volumes of waste water out of the production process as well. Waste water from these industries generally has a high organic content, turbidity, solids and oil & grease. Those contaminants need to be removed prior to discharge into the sewerage system or the environment.

In view of strict legal regulations, the requirements for the water used in the production process in the food & beverage and agricultural industry segments are extremely high. This comes along with a need for high quality water treatment systems.
