Phytaflow®

Ensuring smoother plant operations

The effects of fouling can cost ethanol plants time and money. Fouling reduces the efficiency of heat exchangers, which increases natural gas usage, and can cause downtime in production. Fouling also can require additional sulfuric acid and/or hydroblasting.
 
Added to fermentation, Phytaflow eliminates metal chelating properties and directly reduces fouling at heat exchangers, distillation columns and evaporators. This leads to:
• Chemical savings - Reduced sulfuric acid at distillation columns and evaporators
• Energy savings - Improved efficiency of heat exchanger lowers amount of natural gas used
• Dose flexibility - A separate product addition during fermentation means you can control and optimize dose
