Ingredients and Processing Aids
Hydrite offers a wide variety of liquid and dry food ingredients. We will work with your company to come up with the best fit solutions, and then deliver these ingredients ready to use. We produce an extensive line of food ingredients and preservatives,and we partner with the industry’s highest quality ingredient manufacturers for distribution, all backed by Hydrite's reputation for consistent quality.
When it comes to food ingredients, Hydrite is your one stop shop thanks to our extensive R&D facility, ability to bundle products for cost improvements, strong raw material purchasing power, privately-owned fleet for on-time delivery, products manufactured under cGMPs, and quality management systems.
Liquid Ingredient Advantages
- pH adjustment
- Pet Food
Processing aids help control unwanted scale formation and lead to longer and more efficient product runs. At Hydrite, our patented processing aids are the result of years of research and field testing to create the best product options for the dairy industry. Processing Aids from Hydrite consist of proprietary and/or patented blends of food grade polyphosphates that have been optimized for greater effectiveness over the use of single phosphate compositions. They have the potential for application anywhere undesirable calcium carbonate and calcium phosphate scale forms. They are proven to be effective in reducing fouling on contact surfaces in heat transfer equipment such as heat exchangers, pasteurizers, and evaporators.
Liquid Processing Aid Benefits
- Lower ash in lactose
- Larger, more uniform crystals
- Uniform dehydrated properties
- Less caking
- Longer membrane life
- Lower processing pressures
- Facilitates whey protein stabilization
- Prevents formation of whey pudding and calcium fall-out
- Reduced solids fallout in concentrated permeate
- Less scale formation on evaporator and RO units
- Longer production runs
- More pounds per hour through evaporator
- Reduced energy usage
- Elimination of midday wash
- Fewer chemicals required for cleaning
- Greater product recovery/higher yields
Hydrite has a line of chelating processing aids that can be used in food processing equipment to prevent scale build up and reduced production throughput.
Delta No. 594 can be used in whey or lactose RO membrane systems to prevent mineral fouling.
Prolong Plus No. 598 is used in milk evaporators to reduce “white scorch particles” on sediment disk testing during production runs.
Poly-Sperse No. 543 is a high solids liquid chelating agent for use as a scale inhibitor during lactose processing.
Reverse Osmosis Membrane Systems
Delta No. 594 has been found to be extremely useful in controlling the fouling of reverse osmosis membrane systems. Scale build up equates to higher pressures, shorter production runs, higher energy costs and more time and chemicals required for cleaning which decreases membrane life. Additionally, our processing aids come in a liquid form that can be easily and accurately metered into the process stream through the use of a diaphragm pump.
