In the food and beverage industry there is a trend towards using water purification systems to improve the quality of the water that is being used and for ensuring that the quality (and taste) of the end product is excellent and consistent. AQUA|STILL’s objective is to help create processes that can make significant improvements over existing technologies. For example, by using AQUA|STILL’s technology, one manufacturer of fruit juices is able make fruit juice concentrates that better preserve taste, odour, and colour. By using membrane distillation, liquids can be processed at a lower temperature, resulting in less discoloration of the liquid and less deterioration in taste. At the same time membrane distillation has the potential to reduce the number of steps in production processes.
Competitive technology for safe and excellent food solutions
An important aspect of creating consistent quality for dairy products is to develop processes that not only are reliable but also provide repeatable results. In general, membrane distillation can be part of the total fluid management system in the food and beverage industry, resulting in a more optimized process with lower operating costs; minimized waste volume; reduced product losses and system downtime; and less chemical, water, and energy consumption.
