Food and Beverage Processing
No clogging in the pores
BASF enzymes help membranes stay clean
Membranes are a key part of food processing. They are used for example in dairy, for treating water used to brew beer and for preparing concentrates. Over time, scaling and biofouling can impair effectiveness. Conventional nonionic surfactants remove biofouling but are thought to clog membrane pores. When food producers use these agents, they risk voiding equipment warranties.
BASF enzymes support cleaning power with nonionic surfactants and have been shown to never compromise the integrity of the membrane. They clean better and faster, are non-foaming and are readily biodegradable.
