Packaged Meat Products - pH Adjustment System

This meat processing facility was required to deploy a pH adjustment system for their wastewater discharges due to changing regulations and fines associated with pH exceedances. The client conducted equipment cleaning and other activities that sometimes resulted in water with high pH and other times resulted in water with low pH. WaterTectonics worked in partnership with the client’s consultant to conduct bench testing and design a system that could fit within a small interior footprint. The system was built and tested at WaterTectonics’ facility prior to installation in order to allow for a short installation window and minimal impact to the client during changeover from the old system to the new system. The system utilized multi-stage pH monitoring, mechanical mixers for homogenous blending, and automated valves to ensure that discharged water met pH requirements.
