Concentrated sugar syrup of up to 66 Brix has a high osmotic pressure which can inhibit the growth of micro-organisms, however, once diluted certain organisms such as spores will begin to thrive. Manufacturers are now increasingly turning to UV technology, as even the most demanding of microbiological specifications can be comfortably achieved without the need for chemical filters or heat exchangers. Crucially, Ultraviolet disinfection does not affect taste, smell or texture, ensuring product quality is not put at risk.
atg UV's leading closed system design, which utilises thin film technology is perfectly suited for sugar syrup disinfection, which typically has an extremely low a transmission and reduced flow. The UV disinfection system will treat up to 28m3/hr of sugar syrup solution in a single unit, inactivating micro-organisms, bacteria, moulds and viruses such as Cryptosporidium and leggionella.
Additionally the atg UV system was specially commissioned and calibrated by onsite atg UV engineers to avoid any complications that can often be associated with sugar syrup disinfection.
The atg UV system features UV monitoring to ensure systems consistently run at optimum levels. An integrated state-of-the-art atg UV SPECTRA control system provides operators with data on flow rate, UV dose and lamp intensity, whilst the SPECTRA's built in data logger can provide performance data which can be easily downloaded to a PC or Laptop for review.
