OCHS S.A.S. CHEMICAL PRODUCTS together with its allied producers of specialized enzymes, continuously develops the diffusion of its use in the Andeanregion for the improvement of the productive processes of sectors such as Pulpand Paper, Food and Industry. All our enzymes are food grade and have theirrespective Kosher Registration, Halal Registration and have been endorsed byinternational entities such as FDA, JECFA, FAO/WHO.
We have α-amylase and gluco-amylases that hydrolyze starch bonds to obtain glucose and dextrin.
These specialties are usually used in sugar mills in sugar cane processing, glucose and maltose syrup processing, brewing, fermentation and distillation processes.
We have classic and GMO Cellulases that, thanks to their specificity, allow the degradation of endo and exo glucan bonds, among others.
Based on the specialties of our cellulases and the needs of the industry, we haveexperience in the application of these products in the processing of fruit juices,extraction of vegetable oils, brewing, fermentation and distillation processes.
We have a wide range of proteases that can hydrolyze peptide bonds by converting high molecular weight proteins into low molecular weight peptides.
Our experience with these applications is focused on the hydrolysis of animal and vegetable proteins, brewing, fermentation and distillation processes.
We have different kinds of Pectinases both classical and GMO that allow the hydrolysis of pectin in different parts of the polymeric chain according to their specificity.
Some of our experiences in the food industry are focused on fruit juice processing,vegetable oil extraction, instant coffee processing and obtaining cocoa powder and cocoa butter.
We have varieties of hemicellulases such as xylanases, glucanases, arabinoxylans, among others, which have been used in different industries such as grain processing, brewing, fermentation and distillation processes in general and in wine and fruit juice processing.
In our portfolio you will find lysophospholipase type enzymes that hydrolyze lysophospholipids producing glycerophosphatides plus FFA. We have applied this enzyme in the processing of corn and wheat grains to obtain glucose syrup, maltose, among others.
We also have phospholipase enzymes that hydrolyze phospholipids producinglysophospholipids + FFA; with which we have experience in the refining processes of vegetable oils of palm, soybean, rapeseed, canola, sunflower, corn, rice, cottonseed, mustard seed and peanut.
In a highly competitive market, innovative products for the production process can give you a valuable edge over the competition. By driving innovative development, a growing number of enzyme technologies are providing just such an advantage. Today the application of Biorase-A 01 (1,4-β-D-glucanase) is a reality applied in the production of tissue, liner and corrugated papers based on recycled and virgin fiber.
Product: Biorase-A 01
ELIMINATION OF CATIONIC STARCH IN THE MASS IN LINER ANDCORRUGATED PRODUCTION FROM SECONDARY FIBER.
Through the use of both a biochemical refining with Biorase CD-1 Disgregant and aBiorase C-01 Biorefiner complex that complement each other in their activities on the fiber stock comprised as the cellulose itself, the dilution water with all and their compositions is being produced liner and corrugated managing to eliminate the use of cationic starch in the mass and the reduction of traditional chemical treatments such as retention and drainage agents, load sweepers, etc.
Treatment Characteristics: Disintegrant and Biorefiner:
It is composed of two products obtained biotechnologically related to cellulose thatallow obtaining liners and corrugated from secondary fiber reaching higher mechanical strength values compared to papers produced with traditional chemical treatments including the use of cationic starch that must be used to give the quality values accepted in the market.
Reduction of costs per ton of paper produced compared to manufacturing costs when applying traditional chemistry, due to the following advantages when producing liners and corrugated:
Main activity: Stickies removal: Reduces the frequency of machine stops forcleaning and the chemicals used for cleaning, reduces coagulants and flocculantsin water clarification, reduces the production of sludge and at the same timereduces the BOD and COD of the process water.
Generation of organic products designed for the reduction of micro stickies inpaper preparation processes from recycled paper. Its action is enhanced by the addition of a biomolecule with surfactant properties that improves the release of stickies from the fiber surface and facilitates their removal.
The mechanisms of action are:
Product: Biorase C M1
Microbiological control in water. Effective control of bacterial growth in the wet circuit of the machine eliminating bad odors of the pulp because it removes microbiological deposits in pipes, tanks and places of difficult access; it also protects the operators of the machine by reducing the handling of highly aggressive products for health and the environment.
Product: Biorase CM 2
Activity: Organic matter removal and microbiological control.
Applied as a flexible treatment allowing optimization of quantities when used in conjunction with Biorase C M1 by adjusting dosages to the control requirement, aswell as at dosing points. The use of this treatment reduces or eliminates boil-out (chemical cleaning) allowing continuous production, eliminating the use of strong acids and bases and reducing environmental risks and risks to machine workers
Product: Biorase CD-1: Reduces secondary fiber losses in pulper rejects.
Product: Biorase A -02.
Biorase A -02 is a particular enzymatic product with specific activity that acts in the paper pulp bleaching process, this enzyme has a specific activity; however, its collateral effects technically identified and evidenced in celluloses obtained from wood, suggest a very interesting formula for continuous improvement to pulp manufacturing processes from celluloses obtained from eucalyptus, pine and sugarcane bagasse type woods.
Biorase A-02 is a thermostable hemicellulose, prepared to increase the whiteness in pulps at relatively high temperatures, it opens the pores of the fibers facilitating the diffusion of the lignin to the water to handle greater dilution.
Biorase A-02 acts on the separation of compounds bound to the fibers and the degradation of these interfering substances such as chromophore groups (such asxylans, hemicelluloses, lignin), waxes, heavy alcohols, tocopherols and others. Fibrillation and hydration of these are the new transformations that will be presented in the process, conditions that should be taken advantage of to improve efficiency and move the cost/benefit ratio to an optimization in the products applied for pulp bleaching; in addition to the improvement of drainage and oxygenation of the waters.
