Brewery Wastewater Treatment
A bespoke solution for wastewater treatment
Working with breweries
We have gained a wealth of experience through working with some of the UK’s leading breweries. Our expert knowledge of pH balancing, BOD reduction and effluent monitoring make us a leading brewery wastewater treatment plant supplier.
The brewing process produces alcohol, sugars and proteins that form part of the wastewater. If this wastewater is discharged without effective treatment then it can cause significant problems down the line.
Brewery wastewater is usually treated in stages by passing through a series of tanks. Brewery wastewater contains all the grain from the brewing process like barley and hops. This needs to be filtered or allowed to drop out, before further treatment.
The alcohol and sugars in brewery wastewater create an acidic solution, which needs treatment.
Water companies are increasingly targeting businesses that breach their pH consent, as unbalanced effluent entering the sewer network can erode their sewer pipes. CIP or other caustic cleaning processes also require pH balancing before discharge.
In our installations we use our range of monitoring instruments. They utilise the latest technologies. Therefore offering a truly user friendly experience for effluent management and monitoring in your effluent plant.
