Water is used extensively in the food industry as part of a manufacturing process or as a utility, including:
The quality of incoming water (well, surface water, city water, etc.) can be quite diverse. Manufacturers have multiple requirements, and all depend on their specific use.
Elmatec offers its expertise in defining the most suitable solution in terms of investment and operating costs.
Special considerations must be given to water that may come into contact with the food (including in the form of steam).
It will be necessary to incorporate the water from the resource, its treatment, storage and distribution, to ensure that the water meets the criteria for water intended for human consumption from a bacteriological and chemical point of view.
Therefore, the recommendations of the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) and Regulation EC 1935/2004 regulations should be followed carefully.
An increasing number of manufacturers are concerned about reducing their water consumption. After passing through a wastewater treatment plant, the reuse of water is possible, but for a relatively limited number of applications (cooling towers, floor washing, etc.). In such cases, Elmatec uses membrane separation (hollow fiber ultrafiltration, nanofiltration or reverse osmosis) and ultraviolet technology.
