challenges

In an increasingly competitive marketplace that has seen the consumption of non-alcoholic beverages grow rapidly, producers must find highly flexible and sustainable processes.

As the variety of beverages has expanded to include carbonated soft drinks, mineral and bottled water, juices, energy, and health drinks the entire industry is challenged, especially due to the rather short shelf life of some of these products.


Higher costs for raw materials, water, energy, and logistics in virtually every geographical area has forced the industry to change their investment philosophy and optimize their economies of scale. Non-alcoholic beverage producers are focusing on quality consistency, cost competitiveness and sustainability. These important initiatives are resulting in the need for continuous and fully automated production facilities with cost-efficient and environmentally friendly systems.

While a stable supply of high-quality carbon dioxide (CO2) has always been a key factor for soft drink bottlers, in recent years the demand to reduce their carbon footprint and environmental impact has grown.


solutions

Pentair meets these challenges with an integrated and sustainable beverage production concept. It is based on innovative valve technology, membrane technology for water purification and filtration, continuous beverage processing, carbon dioxide (CO2) purification, liquefaction and storage, and quality control equipment to create a highly efficient and advanced production operation. Our CO2 capture or self-generating plants enable soft drink bottlers to eliminate CO2 supply risks and reduce fuel consumption.
