Whether the process media is water, steam, chemicals or raw and processed ingredients, the food and beverage processing sector naturally has some of the most stringent regulations when it comes to maintaining sanitary industrial conditions and standards of hygiene, and rightly so. A lapse in pipeline integrity causing leakages or contamination to the processed product can have disastrous economic and reputational consequences or in extreme cases, harm to, or loss of life. Use of DeltaV-Seal™ technology within these food and beverage processes can mitigate or even eliminate these risks entirely as well as reducing secondary costs associated with ongoing pipeline maintenance.
Stopping expensive leakages at historic brewing facility
With the title of ‘the oldest brewery in Norway’, the Aass brewery is about as close as it gets to being a Norwegian institution. Situated on the banks of the river in the busy port city of Drammen in central Norway, this family-run enterprise has been producing a wide range of beers, ciders, spirits and non-alcoholic beverages for the Norwegian domestic market for over 180 years.
DeltaV-Seal™ stops flammable leakage, prevent fires
In facilities that use hot oil heat transfer fluid systems, fire hazards are a significant challenge due to the combination of organic combustible liquids, which run at temperatures above their flash point, making them volatile, and failing gaskets in the system. Many industrial fires and plant explosions can be traced back to the integrity of heat oil transfer fluid systems, where seals in disrepair are a significant source of preventable leakages.
