Food & Beverage Processing Solutions
From ion exchange to resin processes to advanced chromatography, Fluence offers a range of sustainable and cost-effective solutions for food and beverage processing
Fluence has more than 30 years of experience implementing food-processing solutions using ion exchange and adsorbent resins. Our innovative solutions are ideal for wine and fruit juice processing, as well as whey demineralization and cane sugar decolorizing.
Fluence also is a global leader in the design of four simulated moving bed (4SMB) chromatography plants for the purification of fruit juices and the production of organic fructose without the use of chemical reagents.
Sustainable Solutions for Food and Beverage Processing
Fluence has decades of experience delivering cost-effective and efficient solutions for food and beverage operations across the globe. Our expertise spans the following processes, and more.
Demineralization of Fruit Juices
Recovery of Organic Acids and Natural Colors of Fruit
- Reduced dilution of the treated juice
- High-quality end product
- Low consumption of regenerants
- Maximum use of the resin exchange capacity
Our technologies are carefully crafted to ensure optimum organoleptic properties of the end product through the careful selection of suitable materials and resins.
There are many applications of ion exchange and adsorbent resins, and the technology is continuously developing. Fluence works in close partnership with the most trusted resin production and distribution companies – including Resindion-Mitsubishi, Bayer, and Purolite - to address customers' problems and deliver innovative, cost-effective solutions.
Four Simulated Moving Bed (4SMB) Chromatography
4SMB chromatography also can be used to separate sugars such as glucose, sucrose, and fructose from demineralized concentrated must (DCM) and from concentrated apple juice.
Our technologies are the only "green and purely organic technologies" certified by the international authorities in fruit juices and sugars processing.

Featured Food and Beverage Industry Case Studies
A bioscience company wanted to improve its natural flavonoid pigment extraction. Specialty resin filters improved production and lowered operating costs.
When one of Italy’s top chicken producers needed to increase production while lowering costs, it turned to Fluence for a waste-to-energy upgrade to its existing WWTP.
Because of its commitment to sustainable development, an Italian production and trade company that offers products exclusively from organic farming chose Fluence to implement 4SMB chromatographic separation of its concentrated apple juice. The system produces less salty wastewater than plants using traditional ion exchange resins, and saves almost 60% in operating expenses.
