Reduce Operating Costs & Increase Efficiencies
Balancing utility costs with water quality can be a struggle for food and beverage facilities. By providing comprehensive water and process solutions through our integrated approach of chemical treatment, service, and innovative equipment and engineering capabilities, we help our customers reduce water and sewage costs, and maintain or even improve heat transfer efficiencies that save thousands of dollars annually.Overtreating your wastewater system can result in excessive chemical costs, and inefficient facility operations can lead to costly surcharges or fines. Our wastewater treatment experts will conduct an extensive plant survey to understand your equipment and regulatory restrictions while working as an extension of your team to establish an integrated treatment plan for your facility to increase efficiency and minimize operational costs.

U.S. Water can assist food and beverage facilities with understanding the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requirements to implement a compliant water treatment and sanitation program. Our integrated approach includes water purification equipment, pathogen and foam control, culinary steam and sanitation to provide facilities with confidence that water and process systems will meet and exceed quality assurance specifications. Our potable water treatments, control packages, and pre-treatment equipment packages include reverse osmosis units and dealkalizers. Our products and programs meet regulatory compliance for FDA, USDA, FSMA, NSF, Kosher and the National Organic Program.
In order to provide the very best products, extend shelf life and operate within regulatory compliance, it is crucial that production facilities monitor and treat water and waste systems to prevent issues that might impact product quality. U.S. Water offers the latest in food technologies and approaches including post-harvest processing, irrigation water treatment and disinfection, and greenhouse sanitation and clean up.
U.S. Water’s comprehensive on-site system analysis includes water testing, irrigation flow uniformity evaluations, field evaluations and irrigation equipment inspections. Our products and services ensure both water and fertilizer are uniformly distributed to your crops for efficient and cost-effective water use while enhancing the opportunities for maximum yield potential.
By integrating chemistry, equipment and automation, we help our customers reduce energy and water usage, pollutant discharge and chemical feed. Our customized Reverse Osmosis (RO) units for steam boilers provide a return on investment in energy and chemical savings by increasing boiler feedwater quality, and our graywater and reuse systems eliminate or reduce the use of fresh water for plant operations, and even eliminate water discharge to the environment.
Scale, corrosion, deposits and microbiological fouling are common problems in sterilization equipment. Hydrostatic cookers, retorts, autoclaves and aseptic processing equipment are all prone to stressful conditions because of the high pressure and temperatures within the vessel. U.S. Water’s thermal processing expertise allows us to design a water treatment program unique to our customer’s particular process that protects equipment from corrosion and fouling concerns.
