Read about a few of our recent innovations below.

cooling-system.jpgA Comprehensive Safeguard Against Biofilm in Industrial Cooling System

ClearPoint℠ biofilm detection and control program is a one-of-a-kind microbiological control solution for industrial cooling towers. This novel program brings together a new-to-the-world monitoring device, proprietary chemistry and expert service to provide a comprehensive safeguard against biofilm. The monitoring device employs an advanced ultrasonic probe to detect biofilm growth earlier than other commercially available technologies, allowing corrective action to be taken before biofilm becomes an issue.

paperboard.jpgImproving the Sustainability of Paper by Enabling Papermakers to Recycle Starch 

Papermakers typically use fresh starch to increase the strength of recycled fibers, even though starch from the original manufacturing process is present in the furnish. Now, with the introduction of Solenis’ patented Biobond program, the majority of incoming starch can be preserved, reused and recycled, significantly reducing input costs in paper production. Further, all of the negatives associated with dissolved starch in the system are eliminated, improving productivity and paper quality.

corn-oil.jpgGame Changing Technology Enables Fuel Ethanol Producers to Improve Profits 

Dimension™ corn oil extraction aids enable fuel ethanol producers to significantly increase their production of corn oil — a valuable coproduct — by improving the release of oil during mechanical extraction. The extraction aids not only allow for increased corn oil production but also reduce solids in the oil, resulting in cleaner, higher-quality oil. Notably, the extraction aids have enabled a number of ethanol plants to produce up to 400% more corn oil, thereby improving their profit potential.
