Ask The Expert: Treating recycled cooling water for bottles and cans
12/06/2000 
 
Question: We recycle our water that's used to cool cans and bottles as part of our food processing system. Can you recommend the standard water treatment devices/systems that are usually found in this type of closed loop?

Answer: The technology required to accomplish this will depend on what contaminants are picked up in your process and the water quality requirements of your cooling system. It is difficult to answer your question on recycled water without knowledge of the first use of that water. Most often recycled water is processed by ultrafiltration. This results in excellent water clarity and should provide excellent cooling water. More than likely, the optimum technology will be a membrane process; however, we can only be sure after we receive a more detailed water analysis.
