SternEnzym presented the industry with advanced enzyme complexes for the production of raw and refined sugar. SternEnzym GmbH has offered several enzymes to the sugar industry. Innovative auxiliary products for the optimization of the sugar process have been specially developed for the production of raw and refined sugar, both beet and cane sugar. With dextranase and amylase, Sugazym simplifies the processing of raw materials containing starch and dextrans and increases the yield of crystallization and the quality of sugar. Improved juice clarification sugaras well as the longer lifetime of filters, enable manufacturers to significantly reduce production costs.
As a specialist in the development, production and marketing of customized enzyme systems, SternEnzym has introduced new complexes enzyme for the sugar industry. Dextrans are a common problem in sugar production. After harvesting, they are produced irreversibly from sucrose by microbial metabolism. When these high molecular weight polysaccharides reach the sugar factory, the yield of crystallized sugar and the quality of the sugar decrease. Slower and less efficient purification of sugar juice, as well as clogged filters and energy losses in evaporators and crystallizers negatively affect the production process.
The new Sugazym DX L with the help of dextranase effectively removes dextran from the process flow in the sugar mill and sugar factory, avoiding financial losses. In addition to greater efficiency, the use of Sugazyma DX L also helps in a more efficient process and thus lower energy consumption. Another advantage is the significant improvement in sugar quality. This is especially appreciated in the processing industry.
The application of Sugazym DX L in the sugar mill can be carried out in the reaction tank, before the clarification tank, as well as before the last evaporator. The sugar refinery must add Sugazym DX L early in the process to the raw sugar, along with the process water, since the high concentration of sugar in the molasses protects the dextranase from premature inactivation.
Starch also represents a huge challenge for the sugar industry. As the main product of photosynthesis, it is stored in the leaves and top (bud) of sugar cane. During the production of crystallized sugar, starch often causes financial losses. The reasons are the higher viscosity of the sugar juice, the reduction in the speed of clarification by sedimentation and flotation, as well as dirty filters and an adsorber with activated carbon that reduce the efficiency of the production process.
The new Sugazym HiTaA L hydrolyzes starch and thus breaks it down economically in sugar factories and refineries. The result is an improved and uniformly high quality of sugar, with reduced processing costs. Sugazym HiTaA L greatly reduces the viscosity of sugar juice with the help of amylase. Since starch is kept at a constant low level, the activated carbon filters and adsorber last longer and dirt particles are removed faster and more efficiently. It is particularly interesting for the beverage industry that the maximum clarity of the sugar crystals allows avoiding cloudiness in clear drinks.
