The application of cationic flocculants as decolourising agents in the sugar industry

The application of cationic flocculants as decolourising agents in the sugar industry

Proceedings of the Annual Congress South African Sugar Technologists' Association ( 67): 155-159

Laboratory experiments and factory trials on cationic flocculants as decolorizing agents in sugar refining are reported. Findings indicate that these chemicals can be used to partially replace existing chemicals, thus lowering the overall chemical cost of refining, or to achieve additional decolorization during periods of high colour loading. Flocculants tested were the dimethylamine polymer Talocarb and the polyamines Bulab 5031, Primco 144 and Ultrafloc 5000.
