Breweries need power to produce beer, and power plants need consistent, high-quality water to operate effectively. Because source water varies based on location, water chemistry and time of year, a power station for a major North American brewing company turned to Dow Water & Process Solutions and Consolidated Water Solutions to deliver a means to a flavorful, full-bodied and satisfying end.
Water for Power
RO elements help brewery power plant meet feedwater requirements
In the late 1990s, a coking facility in Detroit closed, and the site was subjected to strict cleanup requirements as part of new government regulations. As part of the overall site cleanup, the facility was required to capture groundwater contaminated with creosote oil, aromatic hydrocarbons, ammonia and iron, and prevent it from migrating off site and contaminating surrounding areas. The final destination for the groundwater was a municipal wastewater treatment plant.

R14 Series reverse osmosis (RO) systems for water purification in commercial settings are ideal for applications including municipal water treatment, steam boiler and steam sterilizer makeup, laboratory use, spot-free car washes, food processing, and metal plating and finishing, as well as for water for humidification.
The compact, wall-mounted, heavy-duty RO systems come in three models for flow rates up to 5,400 gal per day (gpd). They are available with brass or stainless steel fittings.
Spectrus TD1100E is a non-oxidizing microbiological control agent used to kill or control growth of microbial populations in open evaporative cooling systems. It is designed to reduce microbiologically influenced corrosion and the potential risk of Legionella bacteria, helping avoid damage to equipment and keeping system inefficiencies at bay. A decreased use of chemicals lowers environmental impact.
This backwashable LS Series aquatic sand filter is ideal for sensitive aquatic environments or saltwater systems such as aquariums, or science and research facilities. The filter has a corrosion-resistant thermoplastic housing and base, a stainless steel gauge and an efficient, multilateral underdrain assembly. It is available in 31-in. (99-gpm) and 36-in. (130-gpm) sizes.
The new website will be available in more than 30 languages
U.S.-based Genesis Water Technologies announced the launch of its new corporate website.
“The dramatically redesigned site embodies the forward-thinking vision and commitment to the growing needs of sustainable water treatment solutions by our clients worldwide,” the company stated in a release.
The website launched the first week of January 2015 for the U.S. market in English and will be rolled out globally over the next week with translation capability in more than 30 languages.
AWWA CEO David LaFrance thanks water professionals nationwide for keeping water safe for drinking
Dec. 16, 2014, marked the 40th anniversary of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), which today includes regulations for more than 90 contaminants. American Water Works Assn. (AWWA) CEO David LaFrance issued the following statement to mark the occasion.
The company's filming amine emulsion will be used in the university’s cooling water towers
The University of Michigan is partnering with the U.S. division of French water purification company Mexel to perform a 12-month demonstration using the company’s filming amine emulsion Mexel 432/0 for cooling water treatment.
Neo-Pure stainless steel filter housings provide filtration with flow rates from 7 to 4,400 gpm. Each housing is constructed in the U.S. out of sturdy 304L or 316L stainless steel for durability in commercial and industrial filtration applications. These housings are available in standard poly-coat finish, electro-polished, or with 3M epoxy coating. ASME "U" code designs and high-pressure housings up to 600 psi are also available.
New L1-Series light commercial RO systems are ideal for a wide range of applications, including food and beverage preparation, aquariums, hydroponics, misting and more. The 200- to 300-gpd systems feature a new single-pump design, extra-low-energy membranes with auto flush, pre- and post-filtration, and a compact wall-mount space-saving design that is simple to install. They also are energy efficient.
