THE USE OF THE AQUADRON IN BEVERAGE PRODUCTION

You guarantee flavour and quality, we guarantee that it stays that way!

The AQUADRON produces Innowatech Anolyte, a biocide solution, at the point of use on a just-in-time basis for reliable plant hygiene in the beverage industry.

The AQUADRON coupled with the HyClean Concept can ensure and preserve the product quality of non-alcoholic beverages starting from the raw materials through to the bottled product.  The application of INNOWATECH Anolyte® guarantees the complete elimination of all harmful bacteria and yeasts within a short contact time.

Multiple Uses
The system has a number of uses within the production process - 

Use of Anolyte in Well Water and Municipal Water 
The addition of Anolyte to the water supply, eliminates all relevant germs, breaks down existing biofilms and effectively prevents the formation of new biofilms.  This guarantees that the water and the pipework at the site are not potential sources of contamination within the production process.

Bottle and Cap Disinfection
PET bottles and pre-forms are often contaminated during transport before reaching their final destination.  Maintaining germ free conditions by rinsing bottles and caps with Anolyte has been proven successful at many sites.  An additional benefit is reduced water consumption by reuse of the rinsing water, this is possible as there is no aggressive reaction on metals and elastomers.   Anolyte concentration applied < 5ppm are very effective, even with short exposure times.  The system allows easy integration into the existing installation and helps operators achieve low costs for effective disinfection in hazard and odour-free working areas .

Use of Anolyte within the CIP System  
The production line – valve centre, sugar solvation tank (flash pasteuriser plant, liquid sugar), sugar filter (kettle filter), sugar tanks (separate cycle), mixer, CO2-carbonator, flash pasteurizer-plant finished beverage, filling plant, CIP return to water tank – can be cleaned with help of the existing CIP installations and disinfected by INNOWATECH Anolyte .

Filling and packing
The filling is the last process step during the preparation of beverages and also the first step of the packaging process. This is one of the most sensitive steps within the whole production cycle. It decides how long original quality can be maintained and thus the minimum durability of your product. The longer the period until the expiry date is, the better are the possibilities for distribution. 

During the filling process high demands for filling hygiene and quality assurance have to be met, the process speed also has to be maintained. The HyClean Concept allows a permanent disinfection in the filler area and its surrounding environment during the whole filling time. Sensitive, hygienically endangered areas are continuously disinfected by the use of a special spraying system. This technology maximises the microbiological safety.

The use of the Hyclean Concept means that periodic filler flushing and rinse down is not needed, this saves time and reduces water use.
Beverage CIP flushing time
Comparison of filler flushing and the HyClean Concept
Production stop times due to additional cleaning and disinfection are avoided. This allows a more efficient use of the plant.  As a side effect the water consumption is reduced.  The technology of permanent disinfection in the filling area, where the last hazardous point for the contamination of the beverage existed, improves the hygienic situation so dramatically, that the addition of sterilants to the beverage can be reduced. In some cases the addition of in-drink sterilants becomes redundant.  With costs for sterilants of 1-2 pence per litre of beverage this means that significant cost savings can be achieved.
