INDION  Mill Sanitation Chemicals : These are specifically developed organic biocides for improved sanitation/hygiene in sugarcane juice and sugar mills. These are vastly superior to conventional chemicals lime ammonium bifluoride, bleaching powder and other halogen compounds.

Benefits

  • Effective control of biological growth in sugar juice.
  • Prevention of loss of vital sugar by avoiding inversion.
  • Improved sanitation of mill surroundings.

INDION  Sugar Enhancer : A specially developed blend of organic compounds to extract and recover more sugar from the bulk of the cane milling process.

Benefits

  • Extraction of more sugar from bagasse.
  • Stream economy
  • Increase in throughput of clarifier and increase in evaporator efficiency.

INDFLOC Flocculants :  These water-soluble polyelectrolytes of high molecular weight have high flocculating power towards suspended solids.  Designed to excel in critical areas of composition, molecular weight distribution and ionic charge, they provide efficient clarification of sugarcane juice and are available in solid, liquid and emulsion forms.

Benefits

  • Increased throughput from existing equipment.
  • Reduced capital expenditure on clarifiers.
  • Lower retention time, lower heat loss and minimum sugar inversion.
  • Reduced time consumption and minimum decomposition.

INDION Scale Inhibitors : These water-soluble surfactants have high dispersing power towards inorganic salts.  In the evaporators, they inhibit scale formation by modifying the crystals, improving heat transfer and crushing capacity between cleanings.

Benefits

  • Improved heat transfer through clean evaporating surfaces.
  • Reduced steam/fuel consumption.
  • Minimum number of cleaning per season.
  • Prevention of over-loading of vacuum pans.
  • Enhanced equipment life.

INDION Viscosity Reducers : These organic chemicals have been exclusively developed for lowering the viscosity of massecuites in the pan.  By reducing surface tension, they improve boiling efficiency, crystallization, centrifugation and exhaustion of molasses – all resulting in improved sugar crystals and sugar recovery.

Benefits

  • Improved fluidity.
  • Reduced boiling time.
  • Improved circulation.

INDION Color Precipitant : This is a highly effective cationic polymer designed for improving color of sugar remelt/syrup in sugar mills and sugar refineries.  It also removes certain high molecular weight impurities present in sugar remelt and syrup.  Additionally, it helps to convert impurities into primary flocs in the subsequent process of phosflotation.

Benefits

  • Removes certain coloring matter from sugar remelt/syrup.
  • Improves color of sugar remelt/syrup.

INDION Flotation Aid : This is a high efficiency polyelectrolyte designed for improving clarification and filtration of sugar remelt/syrup in sugar mills and sugar refineries.  It is effective over a wide range of pH and has great flexibility in coping with fluctuations in operating conditions because of its remarkable flotation properties.

Benefits

  • Lower retention time.
  • Reduced mud volume.
  • Low pol content in filtrate.
  • Increased throughput from the clarifier.
  • Improved sugar remelt/syrup quality.
  • Higher filtration rates.

INDION Boiler Water Treatment Chemicals : Specially developed for sugar boilers, these are boiler water treatment chemicals with multi-purpose formulations containing hardness treatment chemicals, instant oxygen scavenger, corrosion control agents, polymeric sludge conditioners and sequestrants to provide trouble-free operation and clean boiler.

Benefits

  • Economical and easy to handle.
  • Prevention and removal of deposits.
  • Protection of system from corrosion.

INDION Bagasse/Fuel Additives : These are specially developed fireside chemicals for sugar boilers having multi-purpose formulations to reduce problems like clinker formation and deposits, resulting in higher boiler efficiency.

Benefits

  • Increased combustion efficiency.
  • Reduced deposit formation.
  • Reduction of unburnts.
  • Reduced frequency of soot blowing.
  • Reduced fuel consumption.
  • Elimination of glassy scales.

INDION Cooling Water Treatment Chemicals : The cooling tower, an integral part of the cogeneration plant, requires to be run at maximum efficiency with low operating cost.  Ion Exchange India are specialists in state-of-the-art technology for cooling water treatment chemicals.

Benefits

  • Prevention of cooling water related problems such as corrosion, scale fouling and microbial growth in cooling water systems.
  • Our cooling water treatment programmes ensure consistency in heat transfer at the metal surface.

Activated Carbon : In liquid sugar production, activated carbon is used for removal of color, producing the crystal clear syrups demanded by the food and beverage industries.  In addition to decolorizing sugars, activated carbon also removes taste and odour compounds by absorption.  Activated carbon may be used either alone or in conjunction with other decolorising agents and systems.

Benefits

  • Crystal clear syrup.
  • Removal of unwanted taste and odour.

INDION Water and Juice Analysis Kit : A specially designed test kit to determine the scaling and corrosion potential of water and juice.  It assists in monitoring boiler/cooling water, scale inhibition and other chemical treatment programmes.

Benefits

  • Quick, easy analysis of scale forming components such as CaO, SO4, SiO2, PO4, total hardness, sulphite, pH etc.

INDION Sugar Remelt Ion Exchange Decolorizing Process : Our INDION ion exchange sugar refining process is designed to decolorize sugar remelt after pretreatment methods like phosflotation or carbonation.  It operates by passing the pretreated sugar melt through a combination of specially suited ion exchange resin columns.  These resins have the capacity to absorb the color precursors.  The exhausted resin bed can be effectively regenerated using sodium chloride salt solution.

Benefits

  • Good color removal capacity.
  • High efficiency.
  • Good adsorption.
  • Works at higher mechanical and osmotic pressure, hence longer life.
  • High resistance to fouling.
  • Simple and economical.
