A new ultrafiltration (UF) and reverse osmosis (RO) solution for water treatment in the production of beverages has been introduced. GE Water & Process Technologies’ BEVPAK is designed to process poor quality and challenging source water with optimal removal of particulates, microorganisms and total dissolved solids (TDS) while reducing the footprint and lowering costs.

BEVPAK, which incorporates GE’s ZeeWeed 700B horizontal-designed, inside-out UF membranes with its BEV Series RO technology, can deliver beverage producers a distinctive product that provides ease of operation, smaller footprint, installation simplicity and monitoring capabilities. It is suited for solids tolerance and ingredient water production, and it simplifies the process and removes equipment needed for air scouring.
