Potable Water Treatment For Beer & Cider
Production of your quality beers and ciders naturally creates waste water, and this needs disposing of in a responsible way to ensure you comply with environmental regulations. Re-balancing the pH of water before it enters the water system is paramount – CO2 is the most popular method of achieving this.
Treatment method explained…
Historically, acid was the ‘go-to’ method of neutralising the pH of water for safe disposal, however, CO2 is now typically the recognised method for a safer, more effective and cheaper way of controlling pH levels.
With acid comes the risk of adding too much and the need to repeat the neutralisation process – more time, effort and cost to your business. Choosing carbon dioxide ensures your waste water does not drop below pH 6 in a more gradual process. CO2 is introduced in as small or large doses as you like, promoting control and ultimately, more accurate results. Crucially, your business benefits from a safer and more economical site – a consumer and business-friendly solution.
Advantages of CO2 in Water Treatment:
- More cost-effective than other treatment methods
- Less chance of over-acidification
- Easy application
- Safer method
- More environmentally-friendly site
