ProMinent at drinktec 2017: Disinfection with low chlorate and chloride levels

(PresseBox) (Munich, ) Standard disinfection processes produce chlorate concentrations far above the desired minimum limits. The alternative is DULCO®Lyse, which guarantees a chlorate level far below manufacturers' specifications. ProMinent presents its optimised diaphragm electrolysis process on stand 316 in hall B3 at drinktec 2017. The trade fair runs between 11 and 15 September 2017 in Munich.

What is special about the ProMinent process is the fact that it has made it possible for the formation of problematic by-products to be reduced to a minimum. The levels of chlorate and chloride produced in the optimised ProMinent process are much lower than those of standard processes.

The highly effective DULCO®Lyt 400 disinfectant produced delivers less than 0.01 ppm of chlorate for one dose of 1ppm FAC (Free Available Chlorine). These values were measured in accordance with DIN/EN ISO 103054-4 (D25):1999-07 (below detection limit).

DULCO®Lyt 400 has proven, highly reliable bactericidal, viricidal and fungicidal efficacy. This is confirmed by the results of the Research and Teaching Institute for Brewing in Berlin (VLB), which examined its specific anti-microbiological efficacy.

Several producers of alcohol-free beverages and manufacturers of baby food are using the process with great success. For these companies, the disinfectant generated on site isn't just a cost-effective alternative to conventional chlorine disinfectants, it also ensures sustainable production with minimal chlorate and chloride concentrations and improves process reliability thanks to very accurate metering.

The diaphragm electrolysis process Dulco®Lyse ensures:

Very low chlorate content
Accurate metering and process control
Environmentally friendly, highly effective disinfection
No corrosion, thanks to extremely low chloride content
Economical production on-site from water and table salt
Long-term freedom from germs, without the need to transport, store and handle highly concentrated chemicals
