Acticated Carbon (AC) Systems

AC-dosing.gifAC Dosing

Activated Carbon is a very fine, dusty and colouring product; it is therefore not a product suited for handling inside a factory environment. At DSSE we recommend to install an AC dosing unit in a designated area separate from the sweetener processing.
The AC powder is prepared as a concentrated slurry and pumped by a dosing pump into the slurry down the stream of protein filtration.

AC Filtration

CandleFilter.jpg The DSSE Candle Filter is developed for filtration of various aqueous sugar and sweetener solutions in connection with carbon treatment.
When the pressure difference over the filter reach a certain level, the filter is automatically cleaned by a powerful burst of pressurized air.
