Reverse Osmosis for Brewery Water Supply in Northeast

Problem: A Northeast-based rapidly growing microbrewery moved to a new facility aiming to expand production. Their well-fed water quality was inconsistent and greater control over water quality was desired. The brewery wanted to reduce TDS (total dissolved solids) and monitor quality feeding key brewing applications

Solution: Pure Flow proposed adding reverse osmosis in order to reduce TDS and provide a more consistent feed water quality. The brewery already had a softener, so softened water supply was routed through triplex backwashing carbon tanks for de-chlorination and then fed to two GE E4 RO’s operating in parallel for constant water supply.

The brewery used reverse osmosis to minimize TDS and establish key water quality metrics centered on conductivity. This resulted in consistent water quality supply to key brewing applications regardless of variability in well water conditions.
