pH in Food & Beverage

pH in Food & Beverage

Water is critical as both a primary ingredient, as well as a processing component in food and beverage production. In order to comply with government regulations and ensure high quality, water must be treated and tested throughout. Testing takes place during cleaning, sanitizing, packaging, and cooling to maintain high standards. Wastewater is discharged at the end of the process and must be monitored and treated before it is released. pH control is critical in food and beverage applications to ensure human health and safety. pH measurements are made across many parts of the process including:
  • Cleaning / Rinse Solutions
  • Raw Water Quality
  • Fruit / Cheese / Meat Measurement
  • Brewery / Wine Production
  • Sugar Processing
  • Raw Material Quality Control
  • Finished Product Quality
  • Effluent Wastewater Control
