Few Facts

Sugar Industry Chemicals

The sugar industry relies on various chemicals to optimize production processes, enhance product quality, and ensure efficiency. These chemicals play a crucial role in the extraction, purification, crystallization, and preservation of sugar. They help to maintain the desired characteristics of sugar while improving its shelf life.

With the most advanced technology and our cutting edge expertise, Catalyst Speciality Chemicals Ltd manufactures a wide range of Sugar Industry Chemicals, from Flocculants, Antifoaming agents, Clarifying agents, Mill Sanitization agents, Color precipitating agents to Anti- caking agents and Preservatives. Here are some common sugar processing chemicals and their roles:

  1. Mill Sanitization Biocides: Mill sanitization in the Sugar industry refers to the process of using biocides to control and prevent the growth of microorganisms in sugar mills and their equipment.

  2. Phosphoric Acid: Phosphoric acid is sometimes used to adjust the pH and control the inversion of sucrose during the refining process.

  3. Anti-Foaming Agents: These chemicals help control foam formation during boiling and evaporation processes, preventing excessive frothing.

  4. Antiscalants: Antiscalants are used to prevent the buildup of scale on heat transfer surfaces during evaporation and crystallization processes.

  5. Defoamers: Defoamers are used to reduce foam formation in sugar solutions, especially during heating and agitation.

  6. Enzymes: Enzymes can be used to break down starches or other complex carbohydrates, aiding in the conversion of starch to sugars.

  7. Preservatives: Some preservatives may be used to extend the shelf life of sugar products, preventing spoilage or microbial growth.

  8. Flocculants: Flocculants are used in wastewater treatment to aid in the settling of suspended solids, clarifying effluents from sugar processing.
