The food and beverage industries utilize various processes that create hazardous or malodorous emissions which must be controlled. HEIL has designed and built numerous pollution control systems in these markets for the protection of the employees, equipment, and facilities.
Food processing companies utilize acids, alkalis, and buffers to enhance various aspects of food. Common food industry acids include Acetic Acid, Phosphoric Acid, and Hydrochloric acid. These compounds are used in Sweeteners, Flavorings, Preservatives, and other food enhancement processes. Sulfur Dioxide is often used as a preservative in the drying and ripening of fruits and vegetables, as well as to maintain the color of certain foods.
Beverage Processing facilities also utilize acids, alkalis and buffers to enhance various aspects of consumable alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages. These processes can create off gassing which must be controlled to prevent worker exposure, along with facility and equipment corrosion. Sulfur Dioxide is used in soft drinks and juices to preserve and extend their shelf life.
Odor compounds are often created during food and beverage processing, and considered a nuisance to the employees and neighboring residences or businesses.
