Winery Case Studies
Bergfeld Vineyard is one of the oldest vineyards in the Napa Valley. They were having issues with a “rotten egg” smell and the loudness of the aging paddlewheel aerators. ClearBlu utilized energy reducing pond aeration with a dissolved oxygen monitoring system that turns aerators on and off based on oxygen levels in the pond to optimize their waste water usage. Bergfeld was also able to take advantage of energy rebates.
Castoro Cellars needed an easier, less labor intensive, and cheaper way to treat their wastewater. So they called ClearBlu Environmental to ask for their help. We were able to implement pond aeration and bacteria solution that provided a solution to their problems.
Conn Creek Winery
The winery was unable to meet Napa County Health Department standards for land applying their wastewater, i.e., to use it as irrigation water, due to high TSS levels. ClearBlu was able to implement a pond aeration and bacteria solution that provided a solution to their problems.
Daou Vineyards and Winery
Daou Vineyards and Winery, located in western Paso Robles, is a case winery that has recently undergone an expansion of their production operations. ClearBlu assisted by providing package treatment system including lift stations, solids screening, pH balancing, and aerobic digestion.
Jordan has one 300,000 gallon pond and one 150,000 gallon pond. They had built up 14″ of heavy sludge in pond one and wanted to reduce their energy consumption. ClearBlu helped them accomplish this with our pond aeration and bacteria technology.
Scheid is a large custom crush and high-quality wine producer located in Greenfield, CA. They have the capacity to process up to 30,000 tons of fruit per year. ClearBlu helped them remove sludge from their water process this our pond aeration and bacteria technology.
Paso Robles, CA Winery
A custom crush facility in Paso Robles, CA was discharging process wastewater into leach fields. The Winery approached ClearBlu to add a treatment system that would treat the wastewater to the necessary levels for land application.
Brewery Case Studies
Anderson Valley Brewing Company
They were interested in increasing treatment capacity so they could irrigate using reclaimed wastewater. After discovering ClearBlu and visiting an existing installation they decided to incrementally add UltraFine Bubble aerators to increase treatment.
ClearBlu provided duplexing in-ground lift stations and a self-cleaning waterfall hydroscreen for the brewery who self-installed the equipment. ClearBlu design and instructions made it possible for the brewery to install the lift stations and screen themselves, as well as to have the screen stand fabricated locally.
Real Ale Brewing Co.
A scaled primary and secondary wastewater treatment system enables a Texas craft brewery to meet municipal discharge limits. ClearBlu Environmental designed the system with lift stations, screening and dewatering equipment, pH balancing and an aerated lagoon.
Worthy Brewing Company
ClearBlu worked closely with the facility’s architect and engineers to incorporate plans and allocate space for a complete aerobic treatment system at the facility. Upon startup, the brewery was only required to implement a pre-treatment system, which includes solids screening, settling, and automatic pH balancing.
Blanco Texas Brewery
An efficient treatment system was required to process the wastewater generated by the brewery. ClearBlu Environmental designed the pretreatment system, which included screening, settling, and ph balancing, as well as the pond design, aeration system, bacterial treatment, and final-stage flow monitoring.
High Capacity Brewery Wastewater Pre-Treatment System
A keg manufacturing, servicing and washing company was planning a new facility that would require their wastewater to be screened and pH balanced prior to discharging to the municipality. ClearBlu designed a custom pH adjustment unit in a 10,000-gallon fiberglass tank. The tank allows both equalization and rapid mixing when chemical addition is required.
