Do you know what beet is? A sugar beet is a plant whose root contains a high concentration of sucrose and which is grown commercially for sugar production. In plant breeding it is known as the Altissima cultivar group of the common beet. Together with other beet cultivars, such as beetroot and chard, it belongs to the subspecies Beta vulgaris subsp. vulgaris. Its closest wild relative is the sea beet.
As in the U.Š., the greater demand in the Europeanmarket is for refined sugar.
In the past 10 or 15 years, ion exchange resins have aroused considerable interest in the sugar industry in general, inasmuch as this technique showed considerable promise as a new method of purification which could be capable of augmenting crystallization as the purifying technique. As a first approach, the application of ion exchange resins was investigated either for the purification of thin juices to obtain greater sugar recovery or to purify the molasses to recover the sugar which is otherwise uncrystallizable.
In large measure, the application of ion exchange resins for deionization has not yet yielded the outstanding results originally hoped for. The reasons for this have been many and the dificulties might be summarized as follows:
Thin Juice Deionization When using conventional deionization for the purification of thin juice, it is necessary to cool the juice from 90° C. down to 10*-15° C. when using a strongly acidic cation exchange resin.This is necessary, of course, to avoid serious inversion of the sucrose during and immediately after the passage of the juice through the bed of cation resin in the hydrogen form. Inversion can be controlled by use of a carboxylic cation exchanger. Additionally, when using strongly basic quaternary ammonium anion exchangers, it is necessaury to cool the juice to 60° C. orbelow to avoid undesirably high degradation of the functional groups.
Lanlang could supply you cation and anion ion exchange resin for application of beet refining.
Now, let me recommend most suitable product to you,Lanlang model is TA301D,It is equvilent to A-100;IRA94;MP62 etc.
Besides,there are another two type anion resin is suitable for beet refining.It is anion resin TA213D,analog of A860;IRA958.TA201D; A-500 Lewatit MP500 analog.
