Treating mains water at a large brewery in Ireland
Large Brewery Mains Water Treatment, Ireland
Our Ireland office, based in County Tipperary, was asked by a large commercial brewery to supply a reverse osmosis system and ancillary equipment.
The purpose of the project was to obtain water of a very consistent quality from which they could then easily make formulations for their different brews.
J&F were provided with a series of mains water analyses showing the types of fluctuations that the proposed new water treatment installation was required to manage.
The brief was for 3 m3/hr, a close co-operation resulted in J&F supplying the following equipment:
3 x High flow filter housings with 20 micron sediment filters
1 x Duplex softener using Clack WS1.25 control valves (mains water supply at approximately 320 ppm total hardness)
3 x Carbon backwashing unit using Aquasorb CS activated coconut based carbon for de-chlorination & Clack WS1.25 control valves
1 x MO-3 Reverse Osmosis system complete with permeate rinse capability
We also recommended experienced electrical contractors, pump and pipework contractors and installation/commissioning engineers.
Working in collaboration with the above companies our RO manufacturer and the breweries technical and engineering staff, the treatment plant was installed without disruption to the ongoing manufacturing processes.
