Coagulants & Flocculants
SYNFLOC™ series anionic flocculants based on PAM for increasing the sludge sedimentation speed in the decanters for lime and carbon dioxide purification (where present) and to improve the clarification of the juice. After harvested, sugar beets are washed to remove loose dirt. The water used for this purpose can be purified and recycled with the help of SYNFLOC™ flocculants. Synmac SYNFLOC™ series are also used in the mechanical de-watering of harvested beets on chamber filter presses, membrane filter presses or decanter centrifuges. Synmac also offer AVISTOL™ series cationic coagulants; most suited for the beet sugar process for colour removal.
