Water quality is a vital part of food processing operations. Distilled water may be used as an ingredient in food and drink products as well as in the processing of food and drink. Water must be clean and clear, as well as tasteless and odorless, to be used in food production as an ingredient. If lower quality water is used, it may cause the final product to have a reduced shelf life, or it may affect the appearance, taste, or texture of the food or drink.
Food processing operations also use distilled water as part of the process of making foods or drinks. Pure water can be used for heating and cooling, rinsing, steam generation, and much more. In addition to that, distilled water can be used as part of the cleaning process. It will lather more and require less soap or detergent than hard water, which can also cause hard water buildup on machinery.
Each food processor has unique needs. You may currently be using a complex filtration setup with prefilters, reverse osmosis, and softeners to get the desired results. Reverse osmosis requires membranes to be changed out and wastes significantly more water than distillation. Perhaps you rely on bottled water delivery. These services can be interrupted or unavailable as many folks discovered during the COVID-19 pandemic. By discussing your needs with our experienced team, we may be able to help your company take control of your own water supply. Our commercial water distillers can be networked for the proper capacity. They are durable and long-lasting and come with many useful features such as purity sensors and auto shut off features. An investment in your own water purification equipment reduces risk and will save your company time and money.
