Clean, fresh water of a specified quality is mandatory in the brewing and beverage industries. As water is a main ingredient in most in beer and most beverages, high quality, reliable water, no matter the source, is always required. As the need to reduce energy consumption and water footprint is the standard in this highly resource-intensive industry, filtration solutions that tap into the economic benefits linked to water conservation and reuse are preferred.
X-Flow delivers membrane modules that can be used in a wide range of filtration applications. We help equipment manufacturers, engineering and construction contractors to exceed their clients’ technical and commercial expectations. Drawing on our practical experience and implementation know-how we can recommend configurations with the lowest TCO and highest efficiency.
X-Flow’s membrane technology sets the standard in both water and wastewater treatment. The X-Flow membrane modules can be used in either a vertical or a horizontal application for the treatment of:
- Surface and ground water to potable water or process water (UF)
- Water reuse to potable water or process water (UF)
- In process solutions, for beer, juice or wine filtration (MF)
X-Flow provides an excellent answer to the challenges associated with water usage in the brewing and beverage industries. These membranes can be used for:
- Beer, wine and cider filtration
- Biological wastewater treatment
- Water recycling and reuse
- Color removal
In the brewing and beverage industries the plant location, processing steps, ingredients, and final consumables vary significantly between sectors, which can include such diverse products as beer, soft drinks, wine, juice, spirits and cider. Consequently, the water and wastewater needs will differ at the plant level.
X-Flow microfiltration modules, such as the R100, are the chosen filtration method for wine, cider and grape juice for producers. Worldwide more than 35 percent of the total wine production is filtered with X-Flow membrane modules. X-Flow's microfiltration membranes greatly improve the wine or beverage quality, operation economics, taste stability, environmental impact, and amount of product loss. The membranes are also an excellent choice for beer filtration.
The X-Flow portfolio offers a wide array of membranes including Xiga, Aquaflex, X-line, HFW1000 and High Solids for use by your water specialists.
X-Flow supplies membrane technology in wastewater treatment systems can be used in several configurations including Airlift Crossflow, low-speed crossflow, Crossflow XL and Anaerobic MBR.
The brewing and beverage industries are typically the segment that generates highly loaded wastewater streams. Wastewater treatment primarily uses bacterial degradation in reactors using no-, low- or medium levels of oxygen. Biological systems such as MBR use membranes for separation of water from the active biomass and therefore create an excellent water quality for reuse.
