all food-processing uses water to wash and process the food.
Contamination as a result of fertilizer, insecticides and decomposition
all create a need to disinfect the water prior to discharge into the
processing uses and contaminates water in large quantities. It the past
most of this water was disposed of with little more than filtration or
settling. As litigation increases, the requirement for disinfection grows. Below are just a few of the most obvious requirements for which
we have contacts.
While all animal
processing causing disinfection needs, special consideration and studies
have involved several large universities in trying to find economical
solutions to this problem.
Pride and other large processors are coming under increasing opposition
and legal problems as a result of disease and illness downstream from
their processing facilities.
Special units for
high turbidity and viscosity up to 66 Brix will be necessary.
Above 66 Brix, the osmotic pressure of the syrup prevents the

trucks used to transport food and chemicals all need to be washed prior
to reuse. While some of this water can be reused, much of it needs to be
disposed off. In many cases, the water will need to be disinfected prior
processes create emulsions of various chemicals. Some of them harbor
particularly virulent pests. Decontamination will be required soon in
those cases where it currently is not.
Brine water is
created for a number of food processing situations. This brine is
subject to the same contamination as ocean water. disinfection will be
required prior to disposal in the next few years.
Many research and
hospitals are already required to clean air prior to discharge. This
