Low chlorate and low chloride disinfection – effective and safe
ProMinent will be demonstrating its effective disinfectant solutions for bottler injection systems, CIP applications and treating product water at Stand 6-351 in Hall 6 at BrauBreviale 2016 from 8 to 10 November 2016: The Electrolysis System Dulcolyse delivers reliable disinfectant with minimal chlorate and chloride content.
As a smart further development of ECA technology, the Dulcolyse system cheaply produces a highly effective Dulcolyt 400 disinfectant on site from water, sodium chloride and electricity. Even under changing conditions, it delivers consistent quality with a constant FAC (Free Available Chlorine) content.
The formation of problematic by-products has been reduced to a minimum. The improved electrolysis process involves significantly lower chlorate content than conventional procedures. Dulcolyse produces less than 0.01 ppm of chlorate for one dose of 1 ppm FAC (Free Available Chlorine). These chlorate levels were measured in accordance with DIN/EN ISO 103054-4 (D25):1999-07 (below detection limit).
Users also benefit from the extremely low chloride levels: The chloride content is significantly lower than in comparable processes, which often contain multiple times as much chloride.
The surfaces of pipes, machine parts and equipment are not attacked by the minimal chloride concentration and corrosion is reliably avoided.
Saving energy and costs
Considerable cost savings can be made due to the low consumption of energy and sodium chloride and the fact that no preservatives are used in beverage manufacturing processes. In contrast to conventional processes which often convert around just 5% of the sodium chloride, Smart Disinfection, developed by the Heidelberg-based manufacturer, converts around 85%. At the same time, operating costs are significantly reduced by the minimal use of resources.
