KWI’s catalogue of solid-liquid separation solutions are adaptable to the fluctuating conditions in the food and beverages industry. These wastewaters are known to be highly loaded with organic content, suspended solids and have a significant presence of fat. The solution portfolio proposed by KWI as full turnkey solutions or as standalone units includes physical chemical treatments such as KWI DAF and lamella clarifiers, filtration technologies such as traditional sand filters or ceramic membranes, biological treatments including SBR, MBCR and sludge management solutions for biomass.
KWI and its long-lasting involvement has developed complete solutions that include conception and supply of complete process treatment chains that guarantee the highest discharge standard at the lowest capital cost. This strong involvement in the water sector has materialized with hundreds of references all over the world tested and trialed in various food and beverage production sectors.
A new treatment unit in the food and beverage sector often face the challenge of limited space. The size of the production center is extremely variable from a small-scale local producer to a centralized global manufacturer. All these parameters together complicate the conception of a full treatment chain.
KWI manufactures DAF and clarifiers in stainless steel that guarantee an unbeatable lasting solution against wastewater.
Historically KWI Dissolved Air Flotation units have been widely used in this sector mainly for their compactness, their efficiency toward oil and grease content and their performance in suspended solids removal. We offer a diverse range of products and are adaptable to any constraints.
KWI lamella clarifiers are an easy upgrade from existing, overloaded clarifiers with no room for expansion. Their key features include increased sedimentation surface and system capacity. We offer flexible mounting styles for different clarifier designs.
KWI offers high quality separation technologies including traditional sand filtration and ceramic UF membranes.
KWI is experienced in the design and manufacturing of medium- and large-scale horizontal dual media filters such as pressurised filters, V-type filters and variable pore filters to remove total suspended solids and silt before the reverse osmosis.
KWI offers high quality ceramic UF membranes. The ceramic material offers a unique resistance to abrasive water. The water quality reached after UF treatment is excellent for water reuse.
Biological treatments reduce the organic and nutrient content of the water with proven processes such as BAF, denitrification filters, and MBR equipped with ceramic membranes.
BAF combines biological oxidation and filtration together in one structure, eliminating the need for a secondary sedimentation.
Under anaerobic conditions, denitrification filters are widely used for TN removal as either secondary or tertiary treatment for plants to reach rising standards.
Ceramic MBR can treat nitrogen, phosphate with higher processing efficiency while producing less sludge.
KWI's well-crafted sludge management system offers DAF for sludge thickening and thin film dryers along with ancilliary equipment for both wet and dry sludge management. Our products are optimized to help clients reduce energy consumption and operational costs.
KWI manufactures DAF units specially designed for biological sludge thickening with high organic content.
The thin film dryer is a versatile patented technology that can achieve waste reduction and other resource requirements surrounding waste management.
KWI wet sludge management is designed for 60%-80% moisture level sludge and includes auxiliary equipment such as sludge silo, hydraulic sliding framework and wet sludge pumps.
KWI dry sludge management generally manages <60% moisture level sludge and includes auxiliary equipment such as Z-type bucket elevator, dry sludge silo, anti-cavitation sludge unloading device, and closed spiral for dry sludge transporatation.
