Clarify Wastewater from Fruits and Vegetables Processing

From conveying and washing to cooking and bottling, fruits and vegetables processing applications are highly dependent on water in their processes. Because we’re dealing primarily with earth-grown materials, generated wastewater has high loads of organic content tied up in it. To manage the high volumes of water and elevated levels of organics, a DAF system should provide lots of surface area and be paired with the right chemical program.

Every wastewater treatment application is unique.  It has its own set of variables that make having an experienced process designer an absolute necessity.  JWC Environmental’s wastewater process design team has worked on many fruits and vegetables processing wastewater treatment applications.  With this wealth of experience we design treatment programs specifically to your project needs.  Whether supplying a single piece of equipment or delivering a turn-key solution, JWC’s IPEC rotary drum screens and FRC DAF Systems, the PCL Plate Pack, the PWL Open Tank or the PCCS Compact will meet your unique application’s needs.

Industrial Shredders Can Help Reduce Waste Costs

In the food processing industries, industrial shredders can help reduce waste costs.  As waste disposal costs increase, minimizing the volume of waste that needs to be hauled away can be a huge cost savings.  JWC Environmental offers a line of shredders in various sizes – 1-SHRED, 3-SHRED, 4-SHRED and 7-SHRED that can significantly reduce the volume of waste from food processing.

Our Grinders have also been employed in shredding a variety of fruits and vegetables, such as sugar beets to be able to pre-treat these items for use in digestion and biogas applications and potatoes for use in pet food and animal feeds.
