Summit Focuses on Safety
The Food Safety and
Security Summit is just around the corner, March 6-8 in Washington, D.C.
The event will feature expert speakers and provides a forum for food
processors, retailers, foodservice, academia and government personnel to
exchange ideas, find solutions and engage in networking opportunities.
Following are some beverage-related items to look for at the show.
Pall Corp. will feature
the Pall Aria SA water filtration system, designed to meet the sanitary
requirements of food and beverage producers. The new system combines
stainless steel components with proven microfiltration or ultrafiltration
membrane modules. Available in custom configurations with flow rates
ranging from 50 to 300 gpm, the system treats water from municipal, surface
or ground sources. It produces a continuous supply of clean water,
regardless of source, without the need to replace elements. In some cases,
it may be used prior to a reverse osmosis process in food and beverage
production, and may extend the life of the RO system. — Pall Corp., 2200 Northern Blvd., East Hills, N.Y. 11548;
