Stone Brewing chooses Blue-White for its water reclamation project
Stone Brewing Co. in Escondido, California, selected Blue-White Industries to provide metering pumps as part of the system the craft brewer is using to reclaim its generated wastewater. Regulated by the county and state, Stone Brewing is required to meet wastewater discharge protocols. To achieve the standards required for safe disposal of wastewater and assist with the purification of approximately 100,000 gallons of wastewater generated per day, Stone Brewing installed four of Blue-White’s Flex-Pro A2 Peristaltic Chemical Metering Pumps to deliver accurate amounts of chemical into its treatment system.
