Antifoam & Foam Control Agent for Fermentation Processes

Antifoam & Foam Control Agent for Fermentation Processes

Accepta 2904 is a high performance, concentrated antifoam and foam control agent scientifically formulated for use in various fermentation processes and similar food industry applications where foaming is an inherent problem.

Scientifically designed to optimise the use of polyalkylene glycol technology, and complying with all the relevant food grade approvals, Accepta 2904 meets the needs of the fermentation industry.

This high performance antifoam product effectively controls the foam produced in a wide range of fermentation process applications, including citric acid, yeast, antibiotic, alcohol, glutamicacid, enzyme, protein, pharmaceutical, nucleotide and cider production.

Accepta 2904 is of low order toxicity and has a neutral odour and taste. It is also dispersible / self-emulsifiable in water, allowing it to be safely used in applications with ultra filters.

Silicone free, Accepta 2904 will not create filtration or oxygen transfer problems that can lead to reduced growth rates.

This highly efficient product is soluble on cooling to below 20oC, so that all traces of defoamer can be removed by washing with cold water.

Accepta 2904 can be easily sterilised by normal heating and/or autoclaving methods without affecting product stability or performance

The antifoam can be used in extremely small amounts and with the potential for increased productivity, Accepta 2904 is the ideal cost effective processing aid.

This product is approved Kosher Parev by the Manchester Beth Din.
