Valence Water 
Food Processing

Balancing consumers' needs, tight labor markets, and stringent environmental regulations makes it that much more vital for the 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.
