Food and beverage processors use large volumes of water to transform raw ingredients into marketable products. This process yields a lot of waste that must be responsibly managed in order to send the water back to the city, or reused in the process. Dewatering your slurry is a critical process in achieving a drier sludge or filter cake. Ultimately, the drier the cake, the more efficient your dewatering process is, enabling you to reuse more water in your process while reducing your plant’s maintenance and operating costs.

Balancing consumer pressures for a smaller environmental footprint and sustainable operations with managing rising utility costs and evolving regulatory requirements are ongoing concerns for processors. Learn how your filter cake may hold the key to helping you achieve your objectives.
