  • How To Improve Water Conservation In Food And Beverage Processing

    The production of food and beverage products in the U.S. accounts for around one-third of the total freshwater use of the country. While it is unimaginable to consume so much water just for yourself, industrial and agricultural applications are on a scale of their own. At the rate we are going, water demand is not going to slow down anytime soon. Water supply, on the other hand, is going in the other direction. 

  • How Can The Food And Beverage Industry Reduce Its Water Usage?

    Food and beverage production and processing consume massive amounts of water — both in products and as an essential material for various cleaning, cooling, and utility purposes. As climate change and drought threaten existing water sources, businesses and consumers are paying more attention to how industry at large uses it.

  • Energy Use In Agriculture

    Farmers are looking for new sources of energy as volatile electricity prices create various economic problems in agriculture. Agricultural cooperatives, which you can read about here, and individual farmers are turning to renewable energy as innovative technologies develop as they offer many opportunities, including reducing energy consumption and increasing efficiency. This article will learn what alternative energy sources are provided today and what benefits they provide.   

  • The Complicated Truth About Organic Food

    Organic food is a popular trend among health food advocates. These are products grown without the use of fertilizers, including chemicals. At first glance, it seems like the perfect way to get healthy food, but it's not that simple. Research shows that organic foods are more harmful to the environment than conventionally grown foods. There are increasing reports that they are as damaging to the climate as biofuels or ethanol from corn, sugarcane, and wheat. In this regard, scientists call farm coops for a compromise between healthy eating and environmental protection. Let's try to understand what precisely organic foods are and why they are not as safe as they seem at first.

  • Applying Variable Speed Compressors In Multiple Compressor Applications
    8/23/2021

    Variable speed control for all types of industrial equipment is readily available on the market with competitive pricing to non-variable speed controlled alternatives, including in the air compressor industry. With the advent of prescriptive rebate programs for variable speed compressors and other equipment, the demand for these types of controls has increased.

The Value Of Digital Transformation In Water At JEA

Every industry is grappling with the rise of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The increasing availability of low-cost sensors and the development of new analytical tools for making use of the data they produce is driving organizational change across a diverse range of industries. But in a broader landscape being transformed by data, water utilities face their own unique challenges in adopting digital transformation strategies.

Achieve Functional, High-Quality Plant Proteins With Pall Purification Solutions

In order to preserve protein’s natural functionalities, the production process must minimize potential denaturation effects induced by thermal, chemical or mechanical stress and prevent carrying natural contamination such as suspended solids, bioburden, fat and antinutritional factors. This paper reviews different filtration techniques used in the industry and offers insights into how the process effects the final product.

Depositing - The Future Of Hard Candy

Hard candy depositing is a process that has developed and grown rapidly over the last 20 years. Deposited hard candies and lollipops are now produced in every major confectionery market around the world by manufacturers ranging from regional specialists to major multi-nationals. This paper will review the basic principles of depositing and discuss the fundamental aspects of design that should be considered when engineering a complete depositing solution.

Plant-Based Foods: Meeting The Challenges Of Innovation And Food Safety

Physical contaminant prevention is important and therefore is part of every food safety plan; that is not likely to change. But what is continuously changing is the addition of  new, innovative food products that require consideration of the most appropriate food safety inspection solutions. One of the fastest growing areas of innovation is plant-based proteins. Read more about this trend and how product inspection programs can adapt.

APPLICATION NOTES & CASE STUDIES

  • A Guide To Preparation Of Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC) Solutions
    11/18/2021

    Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), also known as cellulose or cellulose gum, is water-soluble and used to bind free water. Since it has a tendency to form lumps or fish-eyes when in contact with water dispersion of CMC using conventional agitators can give rise to several problems. Read how a high shear mixer can overcome those challenges.
