Effective wastewater treatment in the food industry is essential. Thanks to the widespread use of water in the food and beverage markets, production and processing facilities need dependable cleaning and treatment solutions. Wastewater can contain all types of harmful contaminants and chemicals. SSI Aeration, Inc. installs systems designed to remove these contaminants so the water can be reused or released back into the environment.


Workers in manufacturing and processing plants often use wastewater treatment solutions to decontaminate water used for food and beverage production. Depending on the type of product, wastewater may contain several substances, from biological oxygen demand (BOD) and suspended solids to chemical oxygen demand and other organic and inorganic materials.

With the right wastewater treatment system, it’s possible to remove all these materials and maximize wastewater quality. Here are some common applications of wastewater treatment in the beverage and food industry.


Industrial leaders use massive amounts of water in the production and processing of:

  • Meat
  • Poultry
  • Cheese
  • Yogurt
  • Ice cream
  • Nuts
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Potatoes
  • Chips
  • Grain
  • Sugar


There are multiple wastewater treatment solutions for beverage processing as well. Some common beverages include:

  • Milk
  • Carbonated beverages
  • Drinking water
  • Juices
  • Beer
  • Liquor

The Wastewater Treatment Process

Food and beverage wastewater treatments help processing facilities conserve the most water possible during industrial applications. A major challenge within the food and beverage industry is that the types of chemicals and solids in the water depend on the materials used in production. That’s why SSI Aeration, Inc. offers versatile and efficient solutions that can handle complex treatment requirements.

SSI Aeration, Inc. provides aeration diffusers designed to meet the demands of the food industry. In most cases, wastewater goes through a screen first to remove bigger solids. Then, it goes through aeration diffusion, which biodegrades smaller particles and compound substances by forcing air through the wastewater.

Clients can take advantage of SSI Aeration, Inc.’s variety of solutions, including lagoon aeration systems, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membranes and check valves. The proper levels of aeration within the system will provide the oxygen needed to degrade the waste efficiently. PTFE-coated membranes are ideal for the food and beverage industry because of their tough design and fouling resistance.

Benefits of Working With SSI Aeration, Inc.

Working with SSI Aeration, Inc. gives manufacturers access to precise, efficient systems that can operate with easy maintenance and, in many cases, lower costs. Each product is designed with durable parts and maximum airflow, increasing productivity and reducing downtime. SSI Aeration, Inc.’s PTFE membranes are also incredibly strong, holding up against greases and oils while providing long-lasting reliability.

Access to full system design services and staff training gives manufacturing leaders and workers an advantage in the industry. SSI Aeration, Inc. also does system installation, which allows workers to focus on more important parts of the manufacturing process.
