AISHCHEM FLS floatation flocculant was developed specifically for use in the syrup clarification process. It can also enhance the performance of all types of syrup clarification processes. AISHCHEM FLS flocculant is the most cost-effective syrup clarification flocculant in use in the sugar industry, all over the world.
AISHCHEM FLS flocculant is an advanced water soluble polymer for use as a flocculant in the process of thick syrup clarification. This process is a flotation clarification step introduced into the normal process stream of raw & white sugar production. Thick syrup from the last or penultimate effect of the evaporator station is treated with a soluble phosphate (typically phosphoric acid) and the pH is adjusted to approximately pH 7, normally using lime sucrate. This causes the formation of the primary floc. The treated syrup is then aerated in a system which ensures the correct size and volumetric concentration of air bubbles. AISHCHEM FLS flocculant is then added to this phosphatated, aerated syrup before entry into a special clarifier. This clarifier contains an integral flocculating chamber permitting gentle mixing of the AISHCHEM FLS flocculant with the treated syrup before entry into the main body of the clarifier thereby ensuring the best results.
- The process using AISHCHEM FLS flocculant is a very cost effective syrup clarification process.
- A significantly higher overall yield of sugar is obtained along with a substantial reduction in the colour and turbidity.
