Seccua Filtration in Food Production

City Water is widely used for Food Production and Food Processing.
How clean is City Water? Can water contaminate food?

Seccua Filtration in Food Production

„Water & Food caused outbreaks“

Water in food production is a vehicle for the transmission of many agents of disease and continues to cause significant outbreaks.

Water in food production and processing

Primary Food Production

More than 2thirds of all fresh-water abstraction worldwide goes towards primary foodproduction. More and more frequently, high pathogen levels are found in irrigation water or fertilizer sludge. That’s because there are no guidlines for pathogen concentations in sludge or water used for primary food production in most EU countries.

Especially seed sprouts have to be handled with extra care: Sprouts are grown in warm and humid conditions, which facilitate the growth of pathogens. Therefor, the Alimentarius Commission CODEX recommends drinking water to be used for washing seeds during the sprouting process.

Water in Food Processing

Untreated City Water is used widely in food processing – e.g. for making ice or washing fruits or vegetables. Untreated City Water is often also used as an ingredient.

Water Quality Criteria

Taste and Odor

depends on Rust, Chlorination, Byproducts or Minerals. It effects on Esthetics, Product Quality and Yield.


changes depending on Hardness, Particles and sometimes sludge. It has an impact on Esthetics, Product Quality and Yield.

Hygiene and Safety

Micro-organisms, Viruses and Bacteria are responsible for Product Quality, Shelf Life and Yield.

Our solution for healthy water: Seccua Filtration

Seccua filtration improves hygiene quality.

Removal of disease agents

Seccua ultra-fine protection removes all bacteria, parasites and viruses. Natural minerals survive. The water is crystal clear and free of biomass, when it enters into the production process and into the product.

No chemicals

We use natural, physical technics. Seccua filtration does not add any chemicals and leaves no residuals – it’s ecofriendly and requires less energy for operation.

Better Quality & Shelf Life

Seccua filtration improves hygiene quality of both, process and ingredient water significantly. And it prevents contamination of food with pathogens from City Water – which increases the shelf life of your products.

Effective Protection

Seccua filtration can be installed in different ways – either at the Point-of-Entry of the production building, upstream the production process or into cooling or chilling water-lines.
