Apart from the concentrations of chlorate already found in these products from the food and beverage industry, this harmful salt is produced as a by-product when using disinfectants containing chlorate. The concentration of chlorate caused by disinfection in the production and processing process therefore has to be reduced to a minimum.
To take on this demanding job, Heidelberg-based manufacturer ProMinent developed its diaphragm electrolysis process. It produces the highly effective Dulcolyse 400 disinfectant, which delivers less than 0.01 ppm of chlorate for one dose of 1 ppm FAC (Free Available Chlorine). Compared with conventional processes, this is a considerably lower chlorate content and is well below the target limit values.
Exactly the same is true for the chloride by-product, where concentrations are also well below the figures of conventional technologies, thereby reliably preventing corrosion. Highly accurate metering of disinfectant improves process reliability.
The process is already delivering sustainable production for various manufacturers of alcohol-free beverages, dairy products and baby food.
For more than 55 years, the ProMinent Group has been a manufacturer of components and systems in the field of fluid metering as well as a reliable solution partner for water treatment.
