SUGAR SPECIALITY PRODUCTS

Rheochem offers an extensive range of flocculants for use in the clarification of sugar juice. By being able to supply specific products to cope with varying quality mixed juice, we are able to positively influence the overall efficiency of sugar production. Our approach, particularly on mills with major seasonal fluctuations in cane quality, is to carry out regular laboratory testing and change the flocculant to suit circumstances. The answer to typical end-of-season problems is to react quickly to changes, and Rheochem can assist by providing an efficient and reliable service.

Rheochem supplies effective juice and refinery liquor decolourisation agents to the sugar industry. We also offer refinery flotation aids.

Included in our sugar mill range are filter aids, enzymes and viscosity modifiers. We market biocides suitable for use in sugar mills, as well as a microbiological support service to ensure product efficiency.

Technical Services

Technical Services

Our reaction time to assist with problem solving in emergency situations is extremely rapid and we take an outcomes based approach in that the ultimate aim is for customers to achieve best possible results at a cost-efficient rate.

For new customers, plant surveys are carried out, followed by relevant analyses and product evaluations. This allows for application specific solutions to be offered. Equipment modifications or new equipment designs are proposed if necessary.

We provide Operator Training to existing customers, coupled with advice and training with regard to all aspects of handling hazardous or non-hazardous chemicals. This adds particular value in the case of gas chlorine, where users are obliged to meet stringent safety requirements.
