BEAVER DAM, WI, Feb. 25, 2014 -- Gehl Foods of Germantown, Wis., recently chose Engineered Treatment Systems (ETS-UV), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Neptune-Benson, to supply the ultraviolet (UV) treatment systems to disinfect its process water.
The UV systems will provide a high level of disinfection to treat Gehl's well water and will also reduce the chlorine if municipal water supplies are used. Ensuring the integrity of their water supply, ETS' disinfection unit operates as variable power, has automatic wipers and will maintain a target UV dose at all times.
Any water being used in food or beverage processing, either for product or as part of the process, must be treated in order to safeguard the quality of the end product. As such, UV disinfection provides a reliable and efficient disinfection solution. There is no residual left behind by UV, which would interfere with the taste, color or product chemistry of the water, but it does eliminate any present pathogens and spoilage organisms.
"The Gehl Foods water has excellent optical properties and we measured UV transmittances over 95 percent for both the well water and the city mains," stated Jon McClean, Chief Technical Officer of ETS-UV.
Engineered Treatment Systems' Ultraviolet Disinfection Systems ideal for applications such as drinking water and wastewater treatment, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, food and beverage, pulp and paper, and aquaculture.
