Food water industry: a large water user

  • Abundant and inexpensive source of water is a requirement for success in the food processing

Most food industries rely on water supplied by local municipalities;

  • However, some are learning the value of on-site treatment

Water used during the food preparation step must be treated to a potable level:

  • Filtration systems, UV disinfection, ion-exchange systems, and membrane systems such as reverse osmosis

Over the last decade there has been an increased demand for bottled water and other beverages. This demand has drawn manufacturers’’ attention to the need for specialized filling techniques, proper sanitation practices and enhanced water disinfection and bottle sterilization. Most bottling companies rely on the use of ozone to meet these ever-increasing legislative and consumer quality demands.

There are three main applications for ozone in the bottling industry including the ozonation of the wash water used to clean the bottles prior to filling, ozonation of the actual bottling water and ozone for Clean In Place (CIP) system sanitation. Experience has indicated that a small dose of ozone from a high concentration ozone monitor in the region of 0.3 mg/l to 0.5 mg/l is sufficient to sanitize the product and the product packaging.

Regardless of the application point of ozone, the final bottled product will be dramatically improved with consumer safety and confidence increased.
