EUROCHEM -ZUCRA has unique specialties in the industry to improve the quality of the cane, even before it’s cut, creating a hygienic environment, reducing the population of microorganisms and improving extraction with less bacterial contamination.
Likewise, this EUROCHEM- ZUCRA treatment keeps the quality of the cane by preventing the decay of sucrose to glucose and fructose from the moment it’s cut, transported, unloaded and milled, as well as during mill downtimes.
Through our exclusive patented process, EUROCHEM-ZUCRA offers a technically and economically viable option for sulfur substitution, providing the mill with an easy-to-control process, with standardized results, better quality in the final product, greater reduction in color and ash content, higher syrup purity and with a noticeable decrease in environmental contamination by SO2.
The EUROCHEM-ZUCRA process for sulfur substitution does not require investments or alterations to your factory or process, and can be implemented in just a few days.
A high clarity juice is essential to obtain a high quality final product, through a better evaporation and crystallization process due to fewer impurities.
EUROCHEM – ZUCRA has a complete line of flocculating polymers of different electric charge and molecular weight to adjust to your momentary needs, as we know that the operating conditions of the process are variable throughout the harvest.
EUROCHEM – ZUCRA technical staff will work with you to optimize the selection and dosage of our flocculants. Likewise, we will train your staff to prepare the solutions properly to achieve the best possible clarification.
EUROCHEM – ZUCRA also have special products for mud filters and presses, where the loss of sucrose will be reduced by the action of our polymers.
The presence of mineral scale in the evaporators increase process times, as well as the amount of energy (steam) to achieve an efficient and continuous operation. Additionally, stopping the process to descale the equipment is costly, both in production and in chemical products and labor.
EUROCHEM – ZUCRA understand these concepts and that is why it has anti-scaling specialties for its continuous application to the juice flow. These treatments significantly reduce the effects of scale on the surfaces, extending the production times between cleanings, in addition to modifying the structure of the deposits, facilitating their removal. Furthermore, EUROCHEM – ZUCRA has integrated a series of inhibitors, additives and detergents to clean evaporators and syrup pipes, as well as special cleaning programs for the steam side of the equipment.
Whether in the production of cane or beet sugar, the addition of biocides is of critical importance for bacterial control as this can be reflected in a loss of sucrose and in the formation of dextran. The microorganisms consume the sucrose producing dextran which interferes with the process, reducing sucrose concentration.
EUROCHEM – ZUCRA have the widest selection of biocides, enzymes and surfactants for the sugar industry, which are offered together with the best technical service in the industry. This combination can increase the output of your mill and therefore lower your production costs.
EUROCHEM – ZUCRA recommend the best option and the most suitable application methods for your extraction system, after a professional evaluation of your process.
