  • Dear,
    I want to know that, is this a penicillin? is there any impact of this product on bio gas generation? if this product not effect on bio gas production than I want to purchase the product. please reply

Transcript

  • 1. What is AlcoGain ? A biocide for molasses based yeast fermentation for ethanol (ethyl alcohol) Get Higher Alcohol Yields!
  • 2. Is the fermentation process in your distillery sluggish due to:
    • poor quality of molasses?
    • high contaminant level in substrate?
    • high by-product formation?
    Then AlcoGain is a sure-shot solution to all your fermentation problems!. Get Higher Alcohol Yields!
  • 3. Factors Affecting the Rate of Fermentation
    • Inhibitors present in molasses.
    • Fermentable to non fermentable solids concentration in raw molasses.
    • Bacterial contamination in fermented wash. 
    • Sugar concentration in fermented wash
    • Ethanol concentration in fermented wash
    • Temperature of fermenters
    • Agitation in fermenters 
    • Yeast strain
  • 4. Inhibitors Present in raw Molasses
    • Organic volatile acids
    • Caramel content in molasses
    • Gums, resins and waxes
    • F/N ratio < 0.9
    • Bacterial contamination
  • 5. Major Sources of Bacterial Contamination
    • molasses
    • air and water
    • dead pockets
    • Lactobacillus, Leuconostoc & L. fermentum
    • Acetobactor
    • > 500 different bacteria
  • 6. How do bacteria affect Fermentation Efficiency?
    • Lactobacillus
        • causes serious yeast flocculation problems
        • acid production
        • inhibits yeast metabolism
        • decreases alcoholic yield
    • L. fermentum
        • yeast viability strongly reduced
        • sluggish alcoholic fermentation
  • 7. How do bacteria affect Fermentation Efficiency? (contd.)
    • Leuconostoc mesenteroides
        • sensitive to alcohol
        • does not persist for long period
    • Acetobacter
        • Inhibits alcohol formation
        • Spoils alcohol quality
  • 8. Infection Control
    • only two methods exist:
            • antibiotics
            • chlorine dioxide
        • chlorine dioxide:
            • cannot be used > 50 ppm
            • expensive
        • antibiotics:
            • highly effective
            • cheaper
  • 9. How AlcoGain Works
    • controls bacterial contamination
    • minimizes by-product formation
    • faster conversion of sugars to alcohol
    • greater conversion of sugars to alcohol
    • increases rate of yeast metabolism
    • healthy active yeast growth
    • increase in productivity and spirit quality
  • 10. General
    • Product Specifications
        • Liquid form
    • Storage and Shelf Life
        • 3-4 months in cool place
    • Dosage
        • 35 L per month per 30 KLPD distillery
        • May vary as per distillery performance parameters
    • Packing
        • Available in 35 L jerry can
  • 11. Economics
    • Depends upon Fermentation Efficiency (FE)
    • Lower the FE, better the result
    • Max. increase observed 0.8 % (v/v) in wash
    • Cost per month = one day’s benefit (min.)
    • Benefits vary from plant to plant
  • 12. Safety
    • Handle with care
    • Only authorized personnel to handle
    • Should not be tasted or smelled
    • Store in a safe place
    • Keep the can tightly closed
    • Keep in a cool place
