Food Production

Water Treatment for the Food Industry

As with any sector Kirton supply systems to, the Food Production sector require a unique set of regulations to comply with. For example, our use of food grade materials, prevent any form of contamination with our clients product.

Typical systems currently installed include the use of an Iron Manganese Filtration System fed from a new Bore-hole. The system is inclusive of specialist media filters dosed with sodium hypochlorite to both aid precipitation of the iron and manganese present in the bore-hole feed and provide a residual amount in the feed to a water storage tank. As with all systems we design, processes are automated and are programmed by our specialist engineers to ensure efficient use with minimum maintenance implications. Training for on-site engineers in the operation of the system can be arranged.

All our systems are unique in design, ensuring efficiency throughout the power and cost spectrum. With the lowest management/maintenance cost possible, we will always ensure to provide the best quality of products in the industry.
