Besides a complete
range of treatment solutions to meet
process water quality and effluent
discharge norms, and condensate recovery
and waste water recycle for water
conservation, Ion Exchange LLC offers
a wide range of high performance chemicals
and processes for use in solid and
liquid sugar manufacture.
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
- 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.
- Extraction of more sugar from
- 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.
- Increased throughput from existing
- Reduced capital expenditure on
- Lower retention time, lower heat
loss and minimum sugar inversion.
- Reduced time consumption and minimum
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.
- Improved heat transfer through
clean evaporating surfaces.
- Reduced steam/fuel consumption.
- Minimum number of cleaning per
- Prevention of over-loading of
- 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.
- 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
- 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
- Lower retention time.
- Reduced mud volume.
- Low pol content in filtrate.
- Increased throughput from the
- 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.
- 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
- Increased combustion efficiency.
- Reduced deposit formation.
- Reduction of unburnts.
- Reduced frequency of soot blowing.
- Reduced fuel consumption.
- Elimination of glassy scales.
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
- 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.
- Crystal clear syrup.
- Removal of unwanted taste and
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.
- 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
- 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.
