Why Dextranase L ‘Amano’?
Technical presentation
Apr-13
2 points to consider!
• Powerful! (very high endo activity)
-> Dextranase L ‘Amano’ works rapidly and
efficiently on Dextran during the process
-> Dextranase L ‘Amano’ dosage can be adjustable at
the factory depending on the purpose
• PURE! (very high purity)
-> Dextranase L ‘Amano’ helps better crystallization

Dextranase L ‘Amano’ •Very quick Dextran hydrolysis
•DP2 and DP3 production
Tangible Advantages
•
•
•
•
•
Better crystalized sugar
Gain better yield
Rapid reduction of viscosity
Higher productivity in the capacity
Shorter process time
Other advantages
• Easier maintenance of the equipment
• Prevents clogging in the event of interruption
of the process.
• Energy saving
• Lower content of Dextran in waste water
What we observed?
Voices from the market…
• Quality improvement!
– Lower dextran content in the process
-> less consumption of other chemicals
-> lower quantity of waste water
– Better particle distribution (medium size) of raw sugar
– Better and solid crystal in raw sugar
• Yield improvement
– Raw sugar yield increase up to 5-7%
• Save energy
– Lower consumption of calcium carbonate
– Lower quantity of waste water
– Lower energy against raw sugar production / Mt
• Trouble shooting! (to add Dextranase just before re-start of the process)
– Longer life of filter cloth
– Lower sugar loss
Crystallization
•
Better crystal
Irregular crystal
Decrease of irregular crystals, increase of medium size crystals.

・We assume the infection of Leuconostoc during the process
since the lactate value is increased.
・We are checking the relationship between the value and dextran amount
(Info) There are 2 types of infection
Bacteria and fungi
•Comes normally during the storage of raw material in hot condition, which leads to
lower yield of sugar.
•Normally a carbamate based microbiocide specially formulated to inhibit growth of
bacteria and fungi in cane sugar mills. Sodium dithiocarbamate, Sodium
diethydlthiocarbamate and alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium are used in some
countries.
Leuconostoc Mesnteroides
•Under cold weather, Leuconostoc Mesnteroides makes dextran during the process,
which causes filter problem and poor sugar quality (crystallization, fineness etc.)
•An organic antimicrobial based on dual antibiotics with special ingredient effective for
bacteriostatic and bactericidal action, Sodium dithiocarbamate is also used.
•Through our experience in Japan, only Dextranase is used controlling MK value during
the process (no anti-biotic agents at all).
