Q: Is any information available on the use/suitability of your products in the cleaning from juice & fermentation/alcoholic beverage handling applications etc.?  Also, what would be effective and suitable for the removal of glycerol residues?

A: We have several products focused towards Food and Beverage manufacturing used globally around the world, including juice and fermentation applications.  Our detergents are USDA authorized, USDA Organic food contact cleaning suitable, and we are ISO9001:2015 and ISO13485:2016 certified.

For removal of glycerol and other food based residues using manual methods (higher foaming detergents permissible) I would highly recommend Alconox® Powdered Precision Cleaner and Liquinox® Critical Cleaning Liquid Detergent.

For a low foaming option, Detojet® Low Foaming Liquid Detergent and Alcojet® Low Foaming Powdered Detergent should be considered. They utilize chelation/hydrolysis and oxidative cleaning mechanisms, respectively.

Tergazyme® Enzyme-Active Powdered Detergent and Citranox® Liquid Acid Cleaner and Detergent are also widely used for beverage applications. The Tergazyme detergent provides enhanced protein residue removal with enzymatic action.  While the Citranox (and its low foaming equivalent Citrajet cleaner), are often utilized in milkstone and similar inorganic residue applications, as well as disaccharide bond removal in the food and beverage industry.
