UV Systems for the sugar industry
UV Sugar Syrup Treatment
Lenntech has a special range of UV systems to disinfect sugar syrups. These systems are designed to treat sugar syrups with a viscosity up to 66 Brix. Above 66 Brix the osmotic pressure of the syrup prevents the growth of micro organisms.
The treatment with UV will increase the shelf life and prevents problems with odour and taste of the syrups.
The capacity for a single unit to treat sugar syrup is up to 34 m3/h.
Also available are special units to disinfect the venting air in the storage tanks to prevent contamination via the surroundings.
