Over the years, many companies have entered the commercial and industrial (C&I) water treatment market more by happenstance than by planning—opening them up to great risks.
The food, beverage and brewing industries operate under exacting safety and quality standards. Any microbial contamination in the process can cause discoloration, affect flavor and shorten shelf life, not to mention create potential health risks for consumers. Effective microbial disinfection of the whole process is therefore essential.

WaterSense is encouraging hotels across the country to keep track of water usage
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) WaterSense program is continuing its H2Otel Challenge in 2015, encouraging hotels to assess, change and track their water use using best management practices. To date, 800 hotels have pledged to tackle projects throughout their properties that can improve water efficiency and performance while providing the highest-quality experience for guests.
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.

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.
