Valence Water 
Food Manufacturing Processing

Balancing consumers' needs, tight labor markets, and stringent environmental regulations, makes it that much more vital for industry to stay committed to developing sustainable processes.  Effective pretreatment solutions maximize contaminant removal therefore minimizing the overall impact of the process on municipal wastewater treatment facilities, and reducing sewer discharge fees.


Valence Water's versatile platform provides pretreatment solutions in all types of food manufacturing processes. The WaterMiner® platform removes total FOG and emulsified oils to nearly undetectable levels and is excellent at processing wastewaters of up to 4% solids contents and COD levels up to 100,000 mg/L.

Valence Water designs and builds containerized, skid mounted, or permanent modular industrial wastewater treatment platforms. 

Our low-footprint WaterMiner® systems can be implemented in areas with restricted space and can be scaled to accommodate a wide range of flow requirements.


The WaterMiner® is a compact, fully automated, electrocoagulation and electrooxidation water treatment system.  The continuous flow through system is available in a variety of modular units including climate-controlled containers and skid mounted options. 


Working with each plant’s specific requirements the WaterMiner® Platform can be scaled to meet maximum and minimum flow rates.
