As you start your beverage business, you have a lot of decisions to make regarding the processing and equipment you’ll use. It can be tempting to choose older technology and equipment, as it can save you in upfront costs. However, it’s important to consider the long-term costs and long-term business requirements before you make these purchases. When you consider the future of your business as well as the present, you’re likely to decide that investing in newer technology is actually more cost effective, even if you have to spend more money up front.
Newer technologies, like spray deaeration and membrane deaeration, save money by reducing the amount of water and energy required to process your beverages. Over the course of the year, you can significantly reduce your costs of doing business compared to using older, less efficient equipment.
Newer technology like spray deaeration can also help your business by creating a superior product. Beverages processed using spray deaeration have a longer shelf life and reduced foaming.
In addition, using new technology like spray deaeration can speed up your processing by allowing you to make your beverages in larger batches. This significantly improves your overall efficiency, so it costs less to make every batch of your beverage.
Newer technology is more expensive up front. However, with the cost savings it provides, the cost is recouped much more quickly than you’ll see with older technology. Plus, you’ll have the benefit of knowing that the technology you’re using will work for your business well into the future. You don’t need to think about replacing your beverage processing equipment for years when you start with the most recent technology.
Talk with your vendor about how spray deaeration and other new processes could help your business get off to the right start. When you’re starting a beverage processing business, it really pays to think ahead.
