The systems are designed to with UV Light to disinfect liquid sugar: opaque and thick liquids, syrups with high osmotic pressure (brix 25-67), glucose, juices and other base materials. While these systems have been used primarily for disinfecting liquid sugars, where microorganisms can exist in spore form and can reproduce once introduced into the food and beverage lines, they have been proved effective for treating fruit juices and pharmaceutical base liquids.
Systems are scalable and available with many options including PLC controls for integration into facility network. Liquid sugar can become contaminated at many stages of the handling process. By integrating a UV disinfection system, the plant can greatly reduce this risk.
The two most often used natural sugars are fructose (fruit based sugar) and sucrose (cane sugar). Fructose (C6H12O6) is produced from fruits and corn and is generally less expensive than Sucrose. Sucrose (C12 H12 O11) contains glucose and fructose.
UV disinfection works well on fructose and sucrose.
The “IL-LS” systems are manufactured in the USA and are designed to treat flows ranging from .25 to 150 gallons per minute (1 to 568 liters per minute). Higher flows are engineered with UV design team.
The Liquid Sugar UV systems are specially designed to treat liquids in a thin film manner. Lamps are spaced close together to force the liquid to be exposed to high doses of UV energy.
