Beverage industry - water technology according to purity law

Plants that clean wastewater, for example in beer or mineral water production, are among the specialties of INVENT. The legal requirements vary by country and location. "If a brewery is located in the middle of the city, it can often direct its wastewater directly into the municipal sewage system," explains Dr.-Ing. Marcus Höfken, Chair of the Board at INVENT and Chair of the VDMA Water and Wastewater Technology Group. "The brewery must then follow the rules for an indirect discharger, which means that it drains water into the sewage system and must be able to store the wastewater temporarily." Read more  

drinktec 2017: Wastewater treatment in Belgian breweries 

In the context of the drinktec, world’s leading trade show for the beverage and liquid food industry, September 11-15 in Munich, Germany, the water-technology@drinktec symposium provides lectures, discussion sessions and information about the subject of water on all exhibition days.

Our global process expert Dr. rer. nat. Peter Huber reports about “Wastewater treatment in Belgian breweries” with INVENT mixing and aeration technology. Therefore, the energy efficient INVENT HYPERCLASSIC® hyperboloid mixers and mixer/aerators are used. Learn how we optimized the wastewater treatment of one of the world’s biggest beer producers at no cost of operational reliability – but with a significant reduction of energy consumption. Visit the lecture at the VDMA booth in Hall B3, Stand 113.

Longevity of INVENT Products

INVENT hyperboloid mixer as well as hyperboloid mixing and aeration systems are worldwide the pharmaceutical and chemical industries’ first choice when it comes to meeting challenging aeration demands. OmniChem, a corporation of SA Ajinomoto OmniChem NV, with locations in Balen and Wetteren/ Belgium, among others, is one of the global leaders in the pharmaceutical industry; 20 years ago they chose to implement INVENT mixers as well as INVENT mixing and aeration systems. During a visit at OmniChem in Balen OmniChem employees presented the INVENT mixers, which have been running in the aeration tanks since their installation in 1996. 

The mixing and aeration systems have worked reliably for 20 years despite those challenging demands. When we saw this, we admit that it made us a little bit proud!
